These are the three towers of CJMS (1040 St.-Constant), located off Rang St.-Régis in St.-Constant, not far from Autoroute 30. As best we can tell, this is the old site of CKGM, before that station moved from 10 kW DA-1 on 980 to 50 kW DA-2 on 990 at a different site. Bucking the usual trend of dead Canadian AM towers, the facility appears to have remained standing for several years -- long enough to be re-used for the new CJMS licensee to take advantage of the new facility. I think that CKGM had four towers here; you will note the extra doghouse next to the leftmost tower, and we saw what looked like another tower's worth of steel on the ground nearby.
