Hi Vince, I'm in Orleans and on my 2nd floor TV I am currently using a pair of SBGH (single bay Gray-Hoverman) antennas in my attic, one pointed at Camp Fortune (home of CBC, CTV, Global and all of the French channels) and one pointed at Herberts Corners (home of OMNI1, OMNI2 and CITY). I use an inexpensive RCA switch from Home Depot to select the antenna. The antennas were very inexpensive - rigid styrofoam boards (4" thick) with galvanized fencing wire and cheap baluns from Home Depot.
For my main floor TV I am using a single SBGH antenna identical to the other ones, which is sitting on a chair which we turn back and forth to aim at the transmitter as required. This is a temporary setup, eventually we will run coax cable from to attic to one or more antennas as required.
These antennas pick up all the local channels, except Global analog (channel 6) is a bit snowy, and OMNI2 digital (channel 66) is hard to pick up at all.
There may be other solutions such as a rotor or an omnidirectional antenna which would work, but I am happy with this setup for now. I will reassess the situation in a year or so when the cutover takes place.
