I believe the problem you had was due to an Antenna Fire:
WCAX and WPTZ are back up, but transmitting from a temporary antenna with, presumably, a weaker signal.

No WCAX here on the island either.
I wasn't even aware there was a frequency change, but came back from vacation this week and WCAX didn't work. I presumed it was due to the big storm a few weeks ago. The rest of my channels were okay, so I figured it was transmitter related.
I just rescanned and got nothing. I'm interested in others' reports.

Any one having problems receiving WCAX after the move to RF 20 on Oct 24th?
I live in the Duvernay Laval area and no longer receive WCAX after the move.

|EdT586||Anyone catching WNNE 31.1 which seems to be 5.2 CW as per Wiki ? Just noticed it while flipping through the channels.|

Outside OTA antenna placement
I need to replace my antenna (CM-4228HD with a CM-7778 amplifier) and my best place seems to be on my house side. Would this be a problem, because my house siding is aluminium ? Also, what would be the minimal distance from the wall ? Antenna's height would be 15ft.
Thank you very much

Need some advice about antenna selection
Live in Ste-Dorothee. Bought 5 years ago a Digiwave ANT7288. It has 8-bay, 2 balun + 2 to 1 combiner) and installed it in my attic. I am happy with it as I can get US channels 3, 5, 33, 44 and 57. But every now and then reception from either 3 or 5 is poor. For example, tonight my Samsung TV shows 12dB for ch5 (no image) while 3 shows 20db (image). I was thinking of adding a preamplifier but test done last weekend by plugging an HD homerun directly on the output of the antenna did not show better signal than when connected near the TV. So loss of signal between antenna an TV does not seem to be an issue. From the threads, I gather that Digiwave is not a great product and I was now thinking of getting a CM4228HD. Would the performance of the CM be much better than Digiwave?

US channels from Laval (Ste-Rose)
I just finished to install my CM4228 with a CM7778. What i'm trying to get are US channels. Without preamp i'm getting only 57.1, 57.2, 57.3 (PBS). With preamp i'm getting 33.1, 33.2, 33.3(PBS) and 44.1, 44.2, 44.3 (Fox), beside 57 already mentioned. Well, what i dont understand is why i get Fox and not CBS or NBC (all of them transmitting from the same location). Actually conform my tvfool, i'm supposed to have a better reception for CBS and NBC than for Fox.

|caplaur||20-25 foot would be ok, it's for a CM-4228, i'll check out at Home Depot, thank you for your suggestion|
|2018-01-25 05:02 PM|
How long do you want it, and what will it support? I use EMT conduit from Home Depot - two or three 10-foot lengths telescoped and bolted together. Alternatively (ligher), fencing top rail from same place.

Antenna mast ?
Do you have any ideas where i can find an antenna mast in Montreal area ? Or anything else that could replace a mast (i cannot install my antenna on the roof).
The only one i found was at La Source ($120 for a 25 feet), so i'm trying to find something cheaper.
