Heard this station tonight while driving along Steeles Ave between Jane Street and as far west as the 410. Got a little choppy after turning north and pretty much lost the signal at Hwy 7. Anyhow it promotes it self as an "all Canadian' format and had a great playlist tonight. Check it out if your within about 10km of the campus.

Yes another co-channel signal with Buffalo less than 100km apart.Nothing but interference and signal swaping in Mississauga.
Low signal most likely due to it being a college radio station.

Bigtime! It's like 100 watts...pretty much a hamster on a wheel providing the power!! I was a student there 11 years ago...it was worse then!!

I didn't know Humber Radio had been around for 11 years. I wonder how many other low powered FM stations there are around the GTA?
I know Bolton has one at 105.5 and I think there's a Caledon one too at 102.7

The actual studios are much newer...they rebuilt those shortly after I graduated. Not sure how long they station has been on the air. It used to be 91.7, then changed twice since then I think.
Most if not all colleges that offer a radio broadcasting program have a wee station. UofT's station is a step up in size, covergage etc.

That is a great station (CIUT 89.5). Lots of interesting music and current affair shows.

Yup...the way a lot of commercial radio used to be!!!

CIUT 89.5FM has 15,000 watts of power.
Another community radio station is CHRY 105.5 FM of York University.
Good programming from 5-6 that is if you are in the listening area. It is usually in the Downview, Concord area but it has been heard even up to Wasaga beach! All with around 158 watts of juice!
Typically it fades out south to Eglinton.
