I just talked with B&E and Omni Provincial Electronics, trying to get a Delhi 932.
B&E: Got similar response as Paulie. No vu-932 in stock and they likely wouldn't get any for a while. He suggested a 933 that they have or the HD2500 for $144. Both seem too much for my needs. He also had a Zip-15.
Omni: They don't carry any tv antenna in stock, but will order for me. No price available on the 932, she'll call back with that.
So if I could ask for advice, would a Zip-15 or the Super Delhi likely do it for me? I'm a 2nd storey roof with pretty clear sight to signal hill, between 7 and 14km distance to the 3 towers (all within 10 degrees orientation). Plus 1 tower in just about the opposite direction at 4.5 km (maybe 15 degrees off a straight line pointed at signal hill).
Also, the sales people are pushing "HD" antenna. I'm assuming it makes no difference.
And regarding HD broadcast:
I got a wishy washy response from Omni's Programme Information Coordinator regarding HD broadcast in Calgary:
"...We currently do have a time frame for this move.
Please be assured that once we have confirmed all details we will issue
a formal announcement.
We appreciate your interest...."
Could not find a way to contact E!, they hide themselves well. I suppose Global might be able to answer that. I'll leave that to someone else.
And I don't have a lot of interest in seeing CTS in HD so not contacting them. They have a very strong SD signal as it is.
