Ok, that's good to know. If you can't get it in Fort Erie, the chances of me getting it in Brantford are not good. I was wondering if it was worth the expense of new gear to try and snag it but it doesn't look promising. The only channel I used to watch occasionally was 26-3 Light TV. If there is something on there I really want to watch, I'll stream it from their website. Thanks for the info.

Definitely some signal on RF 5 for WNYB coming to me, but never enough to get a picture.

Also, I have not aimed for it since they went to 5; if I did, it would screw up getting my regulars from TO/BUF and the programming is blah.

I'm more interested to see what happens when WNYO makes it move...

Yeah, I know. For me I can pretty much kiss that one goodbye. If you look at the rabbit ears info, the new antenna will be broadcasting south east primarily away from us. The old antenna was to the north west and for me it was only an occasional channel even with that so there is another channel gone.

I am just south of Buffalo and the highest SNR I have seen on RF 5 is ~ 24 dB.
Seems is usually around 22 dB or less here.
I am not using a VHF Lo antenna, and not aiming south...
just the fixed VHF Hi Yagi which is facing the CN Tower.
That spectrum is quite noisy around here it seems.
