I remember to have heard RCI (CBC then) Sackville for the first time in 1963. In 1965, I joined the Radio Canada Shortwave Club then listening to the CBC transmissions on a regular basis. When my family and I spent our holidays in August 1999 in Québec, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia we visited the Sackville transmitter site where we were friendly welcomed by a young RCI employee who was an excellent guide.
Now, all these things have gone. The afterglow of decades of radio listening is the only thing to remain ...
