Montreal: Looking for CM9251a Rotor Dealer
I am new to the board here and I just read a lot and found lots of interesting information!
Here is my problem...
At home we are still using an outdoor antenna to receive analog TV signals, but living in Montreal's suburbs and using a signal booster, we are able to get a lot of American TV and are quite happy with what we get. HDTV will come soon, when we decide to upgrade our TV.
We have always been using chimney mounted antennas with a Channel Master rotor and a "knob" controller.
A few months ago we decided to go with a remote controlled rotor controller and bought a Zenith ZENRTR1. Well the first one we got was dead in the box and the second one we got lasted a few months, as with the last wind storms, the rotor itself broke apart, the antenna falling on the roof, broken in two and it also made a whole in the shingles... Anyways not fun!
So we are now looking at going back with Channel Master as the Zenith stuff was really bad in terms of quality...
We have been looking to get a Channel Master 9521A (the whole kit) or at least a 9537 because our old rotor still works, but we'd rather install a new one...
The bad thing is we have only found one place in Montreal that sells them, but they are backordered since February and have 61 orders on them!
So I'd like to know if there are any retailers (online or not) that have them in stock and can easily ship it in Canada.
Thanks a lot!
Also on a side note I'd like to know where I could see what people are getting in terms of HD signals near Montreal.
