CKEC “Radio New Glasgow” in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia, is another easy catch which have failed to reply to me untill now. Last week, however, I received a nice letter from Chief Engineer Peter Lann who confirmed my report of CKEC from November. Peter also enclosed a CD with recordings of the entire programming of CKEC on the day I heard them, November 4, 2006 – 24 hours of continous programming for me to listen to! Peter tells that the transmitter they are using is a 25 kilowatt Nautel transmitter made right there in Nova Scotia. Peter is, by the way, also a HAM with the call VE1LAN.
CKEC is the easiest station to hear at my place broadcasting from Nova Scotia and is the dominant station on 1320 kHz. The station will probably leave for FM later this year just like many other Canadian AM stations.
