I am a temporarily "displaced" Canadian in Rochester, NY. I do have a Bell satellite subscription, but would like to supplement it with OTA HD reception (as well as FM) of Toronto and and other Ontario stations. That may allow me to reduce or customize my Bell channel lineup.
I admit to two things:
I am a bit of a tech and broadcast junkie.
I am a rabid Leafs fan so I would love to have HNIC broadcasts in their OTA HD glory. Not that I have a major issue with the quality of Bell's signal.
I have been considering the Winegard 8200U and the Channel Master CM-5020, with pre-amp on the mast, and I plan to combine the signals with local cable/ISP, distributing to three TVs (2 at present, 1 more to come) and four FM tuners.
Do I need to forget reaching across the lake for DTV and just get a good medium/fringe antenna for DTV and a separate antenna for FM DX?
