Thanks for the post.
A short wave broadcast from the CBC IS (later RCI) station at Sackville was the
very first I heard. It was a late Sunday afternoon in winter and I was
listening on an old receiver found in the upstairs of my grandmother’s house.
The broadcast contained a mailbag program hosted by Earle Fisher, and the
frequency was 11.72 Mc/s. Surprising what I still remember! I became a
regular listener of the service until the end.
Interestingly, while I was stationed in England a few years later, I heard my
first trans-Atlantic medium wave DX from CBA-1070, Sackville.
The QSL cards from those two broadcasts are among my most treasured.
