Mr stampeder: do you think I will still need a preamp with this one?You don't need to call me Mister :D just stampeder will do fine. I think you should try without a preamp and then post your old Silver Sensor and new CM4228 results in the Montreal thread. When I see what difference the new antenna makes I'll be able to comment better on whether you would need a preamp.

True... it'll be interesting to see what difference the praised CM4228 will make compared to the modest Silver Sensor clone. I have to say I was very impressed the first time I pointed this tiny piece of metal and plastic towards the south.
Of course I've only had good results in good weather. The signals coming in from the back (SRC / CBC) are impossible to catch in rain. I hope the CM4228 will remedy that.

Can I call you "dude" dude? :p

I just got my CM4228 yesterday from Moncalm in Laval... I bet they got it from Raybel...

Ive tried Raybel in MTL and Montcalm and they are BO(and normally 99$)......and they is suppose to be 13% or so people using OTA signal in our area and weren't able to have 'Excalibur'.If someone knows a trucker or is planning to go to the USA bring us a Van........guess I will have to buy it from Ontario for 155 thats the best price Ive found(delivered)Anyones knows a better price somewhere

I just got off the phone with Raybel in Mtl. They have the 4228 in stock at $109.95 CAD. Prices seem to be climbing fairly quickly compared to posts I've read from 2006....Supply and Demand at work for ya!!

What is the easiest/cheapest way to get an ATSC set top box tuner in Montreal?
Do any of the local stores in this thread sell them?
Or must I buy off eBay?
MontCalme had one (Not sure if they still have some).
VHF antenna: Wade-Delhi 5Y13S http://www.wade-antenna.com/Wade/cutchannel.pdf you can get it from Raybel.

Folks in Laval / Montreal
Where are you buying your gear?
CM lists Addison and Raybel as the distributors,
Addison has no clue about it, whereas Raybel says they are out of stock with no foreseeable FTA.
Zamboni: Montcalm might still have some.

Awesome thanks Kro.

Are there any updates on an easy-to-get Channel 13 antenna? I'm moving to a new condo (wooo bought my own place) not far from where I live now and I will have to remount my antenna.. it would be great if I could remount and have a higher chance of getting ABC..
I've seen some DIY ones, but I'm challenged in that department.

craigstar, see Post #69 for one that Kro uses.

I've tried Addison, Raybel and Montcalm but no one seem to have the Channel Master 4221 in stock.
Raybel offered the Delhi 4BT-1483 instead.
I want to get CBC/SRC but I had trouble with a Silver Sensor. Will the Delhi do the trick even though I leave it inside my apartment?
I live in Rosemont.
2007-06-07, 12:56 PM
Yes, the Delhi is good value for the dollar, and is essentially equal to the CM4221 for your needs. Hopefully it will be okay indoors, but I always ask people to try to use an outdoor antenna. If you can't, you should check if Raybel has a good return policy in case the indoor multipath interference is too bad.
2007-06-07, 04:16 PM
I use the Delhi 4BT-1483 indoor and even though the back thingy is bent, it works good. I can get CBC, SRC plus CBS, NBC, PBS and FOX.

Did anybody find an installer on the South Short of Montreal?
I contacted the guy I contacted last year (I checked for installers too late last year and I stopped searching when it started snowing) and while last year he still seemed interested in installing antennas this year it almost looks like he would be doing me a favor if he replaced the ones I have currently with new ones... :(
So does anybody know a good installer (which must not be afraid of heights as I am :( since he has to climb in an old (but still sturdy AFAIK) 30 foot tower?

I am looking for the best and/or cheapest place to get a Wade 5Y13S or a 10Y13S in Montreal. I don't mind ordering on-line as long as the bottom line is less than I can get locally.

Just for information for others who are looking, there is An Addisons in the East End, somehwere close to Sherbrooke and Jean Baptiste, perhaps. They are generally much more helpful and not nearly as arrogant as the main Addison's. Apparently the two stores are related to one another, though. Perhaps it is a son who runs the smaller one in the East end.
