Wow! And I thought your antenna is positioned clearly the southern skyline. That's awsome that you're able to get all these channels with your setup as described below. I"m amazed....

What model of the Radio Shack amplifier do you have? I should maybe invest in one too.

With your unobstructed view, most definitely it's a huge factor.

Let me know how the antenna project goes and whether you were able to get CFTO.

Besides the ones i commented on, i am receiving everything
on that list at all times day and night, signal level
fluctuates a tad depending on time of day and weather
though. I actually have the antennna sitting right next
to the TV and pointing directly at the living room wall,
the signal must pass through the outside concrete apartment
wall as well as my bedroom and living room dry wall before
it reaches the antenna, despite this, receptions is still
great, i did forget to mention in my original post that
i'm using a radio shack signal amplifier that does make
a noticeable increase when connected.

I think it has allot to do with the fact that i'm so
high up on the 32nd floor with no other buildings in the
way that i can get away with such an inneficient setup,
i'm sure there would be more i could pick up if i actually
had an antenna pointing out the window. This is still
something i'm going to try, i've already built the DIY
4 bay antenna which is essentially a poor man's copy of
the Channel Master 4221. I'm going to test it some time
this week when i get some time, i'm sure there are a couple
more that i can pull in with that setup, but maybe i'm
just being greedy. Either way i'll post on any progress
i've made, thanks a bunch for the update RFMan07!
