You might get lucky with a single antenna, but some choices may be necessary as to which stations you want reliably. You can pretty much ignore all of the analog (purple) broadcasts as (with the exception of CFEG) they are all repeaters of stations you can receive digitally.1. Would I need multiple antennas in order to pick up the three groupings of channels or would something like a single Antennas Direct DB8 suffice? (i.e. 274-315 degrees, 195-222 degrees, 109-195 degrees)
Not so much that they are too far away, but there is too much of a hill between them. I wouldn't hold my breath on being able to receive the reliably. If you click on any one of them in your report, it will show a profile of the terrain between you and them.2. The ABC, NBC, CBS channels are 107miles away. Any recommended equipment to get those or are they really too far away?
If you could answer my question I will help you with this.3. What equipment 'shopping list' would be recommended to purchase?
Hi Zapperman,Just throwing it out there that if anyone is looking for some help/ advice in the chilliwack area, I am back in the game and can provide some Insight. If you are downtown you are likely out of luck, but if you are in south Sardis/ vedder crossing, there is some hope. For HD I pull in CBC, ctv2, global, omni and CHNU. No luck with CTV or CKVU. yet.
That's what i figured. I've gotten KVOS with a homemade loop in our living room, but that's not enough for me to devote a lot of effort.Well, with your location it is challenging and if you are limited to an attic install, it probably isn't worth it. At best, you would get KVOS and KBCB, and the local analogs global and CBC. You would not get the digitals from Mt. Seymour. I doubt you would get these with an outdoor install and preamp either. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
Yes, CBC shut down all of their analog transmitters last summer. There are some affiliates still operating analog transmitters, but I believe the one in Chilliwack was owned by CBC and will have been shut down.I thought the CBC analog was shut down--is it still going?
