Driving in Nova Scotia

Due to its west-facing directional pattern, WBZ sends only the
equivalent of ~5 kW-ND (from a quarter-wave tower) toward New Glasgow.
That's about the same as WEZE. With pretty much of a clear salt-water
path the whole way, the 590 and 1030 signals should be comparable.

As for ferries, what about the ferry from Portland ME to Yarmouth? Is
that gone also?
