this station is like a lighthouse in the AM band, always there when its open towards the northwesten hemisphere. I noted the station some days ago with a new type of local ID, "CBC Radio One 1400 AM in Gander". I sent Maureen Anonsen a reception report which was verified swiftly.
Gander is located on the northeastern part of the Island of Newfoundland and has a population of aprox. 10000 habitants. Gander was actually first an military airport that was built during the second world war where a town started to develop around. The airport later became Gander International Airport. It was used as a refuelling stop for atlantic flights in many years until the newer long-range aircrafts hit the market.
