Teleglobe traces its origins back to the formation of Canadian Overseas Telecommunications Corporation in 1950. COTC was a Crown Corporation operating as the exclusive provider of telecommunications services to and from Canada, first by VHF radio, later using newer technologies as they became available.

My best information at this point is that this station was opened in 1966. It became largely obsolete and finally closed in 1995. Today, the property is in private hands, but allegedly for sale for about $250,000.

Personal Commentary: 

Although the monster satellite dishes are gone, and with them most of the equipment, this was a fun explore. I even had an opportunity to make some new friends.



my dad worked for them , cotc in newfoundland, he was transferred to beaver Harbour Ns then called teleglobe canada . i still have a sample of the undersea cable
