Yeah, CFTR would be the station in Toronto at 680 kHz. It too is also a 50,000 watt station day/night station, like RKO is. It is formatted as an all news station like KNX 1070 in Los Angeles, WBBM 780 in Chicago, KOMO 1000 in Seattle and WCBS 880 in New York, and only one of two in Canada (the other being CKWX 1130 in Vancover, BC, which can also be heard in Montana.)

The intersting thing about 850 KOA in Denver is that it reaches 4 Canadian provinces, 35 states in the US and most of Mexico north of Mexico City, but it cannot be heard in the Seattle market since an all sports station in Tacoma is on 850 kHz. Hardcore AM DX'ers have heard KOA Denver in countries such as Sweden and Australia.

I was stationed on an island in the Azores off the coast of Portugal in the early 70s. We regularly listened to WLS in Chicago every night/very early morning.
