Radio shack will be misssed but in Edmonton their are at least two other places to go and much cheeper. Arrow Bell and Active components both have a good supply of stuff.
Heathkit made alot of fun kits to build I personaly made several. I do know that Arrow Bell in the west end has kits like them.
Ive been getting stuff from this site's sponsor (Save and Replay) ordering online (DB8e). I was getting CM stuff from Satellite Central Communications in Aldergrove.
Best thing I ever did was to get a CM7000 PVR. With a good antenna you can get lots of old movies from KOMO, KIRO and KVOS. I have a number stored on my PVR to watch when I don't care for other programming.

I could help with installs if you have all the antenna gear. Lower mainland only. I could supply pipe, fasteners, general hardware. Better have a flexible timeframe, I'm a very busy contractor with lots of tools and a farm. OTA for over 25 years in the fringe.
My roof is fairly flat but I still leery about getting too close to the edge. And it's a long way up. I bought a 28 ft ladder to get there and I ill go up and fix my antenna if there isn't someone I can hire.
The guys putting on the siding helped me put up the antenna using their scaffloding and ladders. But I'm left to my own devises now. I will need to replace the two transformer/baluns and the combiner. Not a hard job.
Now i would ask my brother to backstop me, but he fell off his own ladder a few days ago and cracked three vertibrae and compressed a disc, and wound up in the hospital with a concussion. I don't think he'll volunteer to help.

Anybody know of an installer?
