Outdoor TV antenna for Calgary?
Please help me to select a good outdoor antenna for viewing 5 main TV stations (Global, CTV, CityTV, CBC, Access) at Calgary SW. All stations are within 20 km between bearing 347 and 31. My existing TVs are analog, will switch to digital after 2011.
I never had cable, had to install a rod type of outdoor antenna for a newer TV in order to view these channels in the basement 7 years ago, it didn't work at all except receiving only CBC signals even with an indoor antenna. Another 30 years older Sony TV still works really well with just the rabbit ear for Global, CTV and CBC channels.
Recently due to cracks and water problem I am searching for a replacement outdoor antenna. Compact design and easy to install models such as Winegard MetroStar-2000 and SquareShooter-2000 are my favor, HD7210P is fine too, they are all suitable for urban use, but it's hard to know for sure without trying.
From an OTA DTV point of view Winegard SS-2000 seems like the choice. Any experience using it on a residencial roof in city? I would really appreciate your knowledge on this matter. Any other models and made may be better? Thanks in advance.
