CFZM - 740 kHz - Toronto, ON (USA) - QSL

Recibido email confirmando mi escucha de esta emisora canadiense, muy difícil aquí por la presencia de RNE-Barcelona en 738. Hasta el año pasado, la "Ontario DX Association" hacía de QSL-manager gracias a Brian Smith (R.I.P.). Desde su fallecimiento, la propia emisora retomó éstas labores... pero, Gene Stevens, Director de Programación y Operaciones, me dice lo siguiente:  
"Thank you for providing this reception report - you are right in that we no longer provide formal QSL cards.  The gentleman with the Ontario DX Association who used to do that for us, died suddenly about a year ago.  We simply don't have the staff resources to follow-up on all the DXers correspondence. CFZM-AM 740 is a 50,000 watt, clear channel, station in Toronto, broadcasting from a 700 foot single tower, and we get lots of reported listening from all over the place - we simply cannot keep up and respond to everyone. However - I did listen to your airchecks - and I can barely make out the words "...on the new AM 740.", at the 1:03 point of the filtered recording. Wow - you must have a lot of patience, and passion, for your hobby.  I love radio, but not in this same sort of way as long-distance DXers.  I wish you good luck in your hobby, Mauricio.". ...  
Pues eso, que se acabó el enviar tarjetas QSL.
