Scratch ``array'' and substitute ``used'' for ``abandoned''.  The CBL
site in Hornby is still very much alive and is being used by CJBC 860.

No.  940News transmits from the ex-CKVL-850 site and Info 690
transmits from the ex-CIQC-600 site.

According to Scott, who was just there last Friday, the CBC 690/940
site in Brossard still stands.  For whatever reason, the new operator
decided not to purchase it (or could not come to terms with the CBC).
