With antenna, directional location is key. Where I am (Mississauga
South), Buffalo and CN tower are 90 degrees. So, I point the antenna
more towards CN tower. I get all major Canadian stations and some
Buffalo stations. From Kitchener/Waterloo, it's longer distance but
with narrower angle.
Yes, I'm off Rogers Cable TV.
