Are you sure it wasn't 1070?  Thers is nothing in Canada on 1170 east of
Alberta, according to my listings.

1070 is CBC Radio One from Moncton, New Brunswick.  Since the maritimes are
in the Atlantic time zone, their programs are one hour ahead of those in
the Eastern zone.  Thus, CBC Overnight (relays of shortwave programs from
other countries) begins at midnight eastern on 1070.
