remote controlled A/B/C switch

Is there anywhere in the Toronto area that sells remote A/B/C switches? I have three antennas that I want to switch between, and I'm finding that I'm too lazy to use the Source CC push-button switch I'm using now.

I know that Radio Shack U.S. has remote A/B switches, and I found an A/B switch on ebay, but I'd really like an A/B/C switch if possible.

And sorry for using the word 'switch' so many times in my post. Seems unavoidable though.

Thanks.

is it possible to have these installers listed in this thread to come in to do an assesment of my location to determine what gear I need? or are there other services (not installers) that provide this?

Thanks!

They're listed in this thread so that you can phone/email/contact them to see if they will do it. There are several in the Toronto area listed in this thread.

Already read all the pages in this thread.

Any other locations/dealers in the Brampton area other than AF Marsh?

Ok, for past week I have looked for some other Brampton shops/stores that would carry the stuff I'm looking for (ie... a cheap affordable used stb in good condition, like the Samy 151 or 451, or a new 260, and of course an antenna), and so far I have come to a dead end. Other than the AF Marsh listed above (which for some reason they don't pick up the phone when a person calls ), I can't find any other locations close to me. (eBay is starting to look like a viable option more each day... but I would rather not go that route)

I know, I know, some of you guys are not that far from Brampton (ie..Yaamon), and would probably make a house call to help out a fellow OTA "newbie", but I would rather not bother any of you with that. I know your time (and mine) are worth $'s, and I would rather not impose. I'm the kind of person that want's to see the equipment a stores has for sale before I buy. (I'll be doing the install of the antenna myself.)

btw, the only reason why I posted again, is because this thread is rather slow moving (no further posts for almost a week), and I didn't find the help I was looking for initially. And yes, I tried Google, Yellow Pages, ect.... all I found were some south and east Toronto locations.... and as you know, gas has gotton kinda expensive lately, and using my time to go drive to the ones I have found is not really practical for me right now. Besides, the wife has me doing extra house work for some reason. (I think she knows I'm on the search for some stuff to buy) lol


There's got to be some more locations in Brampton that sell/have affordale OTA stuff (in stock) to check out. ?

I picked up a great DB4 UHF antenna from antennasdirect.com The packaging was a little sketchy when I recieved it but it works all the same. I'm thinking of getting a digital tuner soon, the analog results indoors with the DB4 are really encouraging.

Now I'm looking for a VHF antenna.

Does anyone know where to get a VHF antenna in the Ottawa area? I'm also looking for an outdoor VHF/UHF combiner.

Thanks,
Todd

I was on the phone with Princess Auto and was told that they carry a large VHF antenna. Don't know anything more than that about it though. Strange place to buy an antenna I know.

I'm pretty sure the Princess Auto antenna is a Gemini-rebrand of a major brand:

RCA, Philips, Foreign & Smaller Brands of OTA Antennas (see posts #12 and #13)
