Hello, I am new to the forums here.

I have been reading over the threads posted here but noticed
that most people are in the Toronto area. I am in the
southern part of Barrie and was wondering if anyone here
has had any experience with signal strength this far north
of the CN tower and Buffalo. It appears that most people
here seem to like the ATi HDTV Wonder. Are there any other

I assume the signal strength would be low for any of the
american stations but CBC HD (Hockey Night in Canada in
HDTV) is what I am hoping for.

Would love to hear your comments, suggestions and thoughts
on signal strength.

there is no reason why you wouldn't get CBC HD from your location with the right equipment. Your only 50miles from the CN Tower, and fortanately, CBC is much higher powered than all the other T.O. stations.

get yourself a preamped CM4228, and make sure its up high and there are no nearby obstacles between it and the CN Tower, and i think you'll be surprised at what you get.

people in Buffalo (who are farther away from CNTower than u are) don't have any problem with CBCHD with a good antenna.

i personally, am 40miles away from the CN Tower and get CBC at a percect 100% all the time, its a superior signal. CTV is a 90% and CITY (which sends almost no signal in my direction) is 50%

good luck
