Re: Back from DX'ing on PEI

Well, it's the first I knew. I wonder if the class of station was changed
sometime in the last 20 years or so. If you recall, the Mexican clear
channels were the first on which former daytimers in the US were allowed to
operate at night. Such channels had no (then) Class Is in Canada. The
channels were 730, 800, 900, 1050, 1220, and 1570. On the Canadian and
Mexican/Canadian clear channels (540, 690, 740, 860, 940, 990, and 1570, and
the two US/Canadian clear channels--640 and 1070), no former US daytimers
were allowed to operate at night for several more years. I suspect that
either there was a (relatively) recent change in the class of CKAC or that
the database is in error (what? impossible!) I suppose tha the class of CKAC
could have been changed at the time all of the Canadian Class IIs (now Class
Bs) were first permitted on US clear channels.
