I know folks in Erie get a very good shot at analog 31, the Woodstock ON second transmitter for Toronto-based CityTV. CBC on 40 also comes in without even a decent antenna. You're a bit further south, but I bet you'd get those channels and one or two other Canadian stations with a rooftop antenna/rotor combo.
I think at least one of those stations is in digital now, but I bet the power is too low to make it across the lake. Canada's digital transition is well behind ours, and I think there's only one digital station in London. Most are in the large markets like Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, etc...
Good luck with the Erie digitals. They're in flux, and even full power stations like WJET/24's digital may not make it to Geneva. WICU/12 shut off its analog on Monday and will be back on 12 (digitally) on Friday.
Good luck to you! I'd love to hear how it works out for you, if you go that route.
