Re: 1170 -CBC?

CBA, Moncton NB 50 kW-U ND. CBA has been in Moncton for perhaps 25 years.
Before that, it IDed as CBA Maritimes and transmitted from the CBC's
short-wave site in Sackville, which is perhaps 60 miles southwest of
Moncton, much closer to the geographical center of NB. At some point (I'm
guessing around 1974), the CBC put a second AM on the air in Moncton (CBAF
1300). CBAF was probably 10 kW DA-N and broadcast in French. CBAF is now
silent on AM. I presume that it has moved to FM. When CBAF went on the air,
the CBC moved CBA 1070 from Sackville to Moncton and I believe that the two
stations diplexed from CBAF's two-tower array, which was on the waterfront
in downtown Moncton.
