I'm going to be moving to a new place in Mississauga and I'd like to get a 4228 installed on the roof. If the pre-amp option is best, I'll get the installer to do that at the same time. I'd like to have the signal split in four at least (family room, bedroom, computer room, basement) maybe even 6 if I go for dual tuners in some spots.

I'm going to be at Britannia and 9th Line, does anyone in the vicinity recommend a rotor? I haven't tested my current indoor antenna (Silver Sensor clone) at the new location yet, but I currently receive all available channels and I'm only 3 KM east of the new place.

I live off of Britannia between 9th and 10th Line. are you in the new Churchill Meadows development?
