Your results are not the least bit surprising to me.

The first rule of antennae installation is: "Preamps should only be used as a last resort". This is especially true in areas of high signal level.

Always go for better antenna and different placement (usually higher).

What you are seeing is the result of signal overload (probably from the strong UHF analog signals on the CN Tower - both direct and reflected signals).
