I'm not so sure about that.  You're lower than I am (I'm at the bottom of 
Chicopee Hill, on the east side of the hill) but with roof mounted ANT-2109 
pointed directly at the CN tower I can get everything of the tower, two Buffalo 
stations, Hamilton, London, CKCO of course and a couple others that I'm not 
interested in.  I haven't been back up on the roof to re-aim it (I lost some 
weak CN Tower stations) but I should also be able to pick up TVO and a couple 
others too after the September switchover.
