Hi, all-

I went out into the driveway and sat in my wife's car from 12:50 to 1:05. 
Network programming from Calgary, then a couple of promos (mentioning that 
the times in Newfoundland would be a half hour earlier) and then news. 
There was no 1AM station ID, but the Newfoundland references would seem to 
nail the signal as CBA.
