Hi dts1, you have altitude on your side and that's a good thing to have . By "facing the lake" which direction: East, Northeast, Southeast? We have a few DHCers from the area so you could even tell us a street corner and I'm sure someone will know where your building is.dts1 said:i live of the 15th floor of an apt building that faces the lake in hamilton ont. i have a set of rabbit ears that gets me cfto, cbc, tvo, global, cts, channel 57 and the two omi channels my ? is what king of anntena would i need to pick up the buffalo channels like abc, nbc, fox and wb.
Also if its on top of the mountain with a 15 floor further advantage and a possible view towards Buffalo then I would revise my antenna prescription too. Need the info.987654321 said:Are you on the mountain or down in the city? If you you below the escarpment, the answer is No (as you are facing the CN tower)
Do you have a view directly towards Buffalo from your balcony? If not, then perhaps to Niagara Falls or at least St. Catharines?dts1 said:thanks guys for the replys this is where iam. i'am facing towards the cn tower below the escarpment and do have a balcony. i am near grays and barton street hope this clears it up a bit thanks
OK, first things first: this entire OTA Forum has a mini-FAQ, several stickied threads, and tons of great info, but you need to do the reading to familiarize yourself with what others have done in your area and where you can purchase gear. Thats what the stickied threads are all about.dts1 said:i have a view of st catherines but not a good one the side of the building kind of blocks it a bit also where can i find an outdoor antenna my local radio shack does not have them in stock thanks
Go to Nutech and pick yourself up an SL-4BT (approx $40). Aim it between CN and Skylon Tower and see what you get. I'm in Oakville and it works fine for me, I'm further from Buffalo but maybe have a better angle of view than you do.dts1 said:i have a view of st catherines but not a good one the side of the building kind of blocks it a bit also where can i find an outdoor antenna my local radio shack does not have them in stock thanks
That's good advice given that Oakville is so close to him, but as I say given the weird angle towards the Buffalo stations he should get a pro with a signal analyzer to check his balcony for free before making a purchase, because if there are scatter conditions as I mentioned he'll be glad to have a bowtie reflector type, such as a 4BT-1483, and not just a bowtie like the SL-4BT. If you look in the Burlington results you'll see CM4228s being used, and they have reflectors. There's no hurry to make the right choices, and I'm not dissing your advice to him but that balcony's direction is trouble.Ready123 said:Go to Nutech at 166 Parkdale Ave N and pick yourself up an SL-4BT (approx $40).

Not the least bit true - especially with UHF signals. You do not live in a deep fringe area like Steve and I do.rob50312 said:Steve if you can get analog signals,you should be able to get digitals.
