Re: Maritime AM stations

1000 is CKBW, Bridgewater NS (40 or so miles west of 
Halifax) 10 kW DA-N (three towers, aimed east--away from 
WMVP. Like most Canadians, CKBW has a rather relaxed 
attitude about pattern changes, so it often bombs in 
here at night.

I'm not sure about 1310; there used to be a 1300 in 
Moncton, but I think it's gone now. And I think there is 
(or was) a 1320 in NS, maybe Springhill--hometown of 
Anne Murray. But any place in NS is a lot closer to 
Boston than any place in NF.
