Hi aeolus, I've moved your post into the thread covering Edmonton, so scan through it to get an idea of common OTA reception. After that, look through the links in this post: Best Do-It-Yourself OTA Antennas - see these links and also check out the Antenna Chart for the best commercial options.
As you're looking at antennas keep in mind that you need one that is capable of VHF-HI (7-13) and UHF (14-69) in order to get today's digital and analogue stations as well as the digital ones of the future even after the analogue stations are shut down.
Bad news is your facing the wrong direction which means the tv signals have to travel thru the apartment walls to get to you. Good news is you are pretty close to the tv towers so you should be able to get reception. How good will it be? That's hard to tell because the signals could bounce off several walls and buildings causing ghosting.
It makes a load of sense. Global's antenna isn't too far from me so I'm not too worried about it. I purchased a DB-2 antenna on ebay for a good price and I'm going to leave my outside window open and mount it in between the back pane and screen. I will likely use a block of wood or two to lift it up just so it doesn't touch any metal. Any gap in the window left from a cable will just get sealed with some foam. I can remove the foam before I move out. I still have another window I can open so that isn't an issue.
However if CFRN gets approval for a VHF-HI signal I won't be able to receive it correct? Perhaps it is time to lobby.
I was able to pick up the CKEM test feed last night with my Hauppauge stick and laptop hooked up to my Mom's ANT on the roof. The Hauppauge signal meter had an impressive 27 without even properly pointing the ANT. The loop is pretty small, only about 15 minutes or so. I can't wait until this goes live!! Am I allowed to post a picture?
