I am new to this forum and new to OTA DT. I am located in OP, off of Jewitt-Holmwood about halfway between old Transit and 240/277. I have a roof top wineguard PR
8800 with a rotator, no amplifier or preamp etc. I have a cable run of around 100 ft and use a Samsung DTB-H260F receiver. I am interested in only DTV signal and on Auto tune ( I tuner with the antenna pointed at GI and CN tower (330deg) I receive all BFLO dtv signal and CBC(CBLT) without any difficulty.
Once I received CBLT Fr, never again. I have never received Rochester, Erie, Hamilton or other Toronto DTV, including CFTO (CTV). I can honestly say that the only limits I have as far as upgrading is that My wife will have me murdered if I put a bigger or uglier antenna up. Otherwise, I would consider other options.
My main question is.... Is this as good as it gets. Is my system at an optimum or are there other things I can have done to improve reception, my wish list would be CFTO, Hamilton, Rochester and then Erie in that order.
Will there be advancements in the near or not to distant future in regards to antenna technology, tuners, transmission signal strength, filters, amplifiers
