I'm in the east end of downtown Toronto (East York, Pape + Danforth area). I have an amplified antenna that has to point through the CN Tower to point at Hamilton directly. Up until now, I have had to rotate my antenna to receive a weak CHCH on rf11.
The new CHCH on rf15 is way, way, way better than RF11.
A single "sweet spot" to aim at and get EVERYTHING!
I am now able to rotate my antenna to a single SWEET SPOT pointing at Buffalo to get all of the Toronto stations, CHCH and CITS in Hamilton, CKVP in Font Hill, and all of the Buffalo stations including WNYB, WDTB, WPXJ, WBBZ, WGRZ, WIVB, WKBW, WNED, WNLO, WUTV, WNYO).
It is noteworthy that the Buffalo RF15 was a 24/7 reliable channel for me and that is now gone with CHCH rf15 broadcasting.
When I scan in on my "sweet spot" I'm locking in 39 channels including sub-channels. With some luck, when WBXZ fires up, my channel count might be as high as 45 channels with a single aim.
CHCH is a great new addition to my channel line-up.
To sum-it-up with respect to CHCH on rf15. I do not have to have a direct aim at Hamilton anymore to receive CITS and CHCH. There is a spot pointing more toward Buffalo where I can have it all -- including the new CHCH. What more could I ask for from CHCH?
Thanks for getting this done, CHCH.
