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.
