Hi. I'm new here. Been a member over at stevehoffman.tv for several years.
Recently found out that CFCN and Global Calgary are already broadcasting their OTA HD signals on channels 36 and 41 UHF.
Friday evening I purchased an entry level $20 Jensen TV611 VHF/UFH antenna at Best Buy/Northland. After some time, I was finally able to get the Global signal on Ch.41. I'm getting nothing on Ch.36. The VHF signals for 2,4,5 and 9 are very poor/snow.
Yesterday/Saturday, I went to Future Shop/Sundridge and purchased the $90 RCA CANT501 Indoor Antenna. Same thing. Ch.41 which now reads DTV 2.1 on the Samsung LN46B530 TV we own, is all I'm getting for the OTA HD signals. Channel 36 is still just snow.
The analogue 2, 4, 5, 9, 32 and 39 are still very poor with snow and coloured lines. The 30dB booster in the RCA device seems to have only amplied the snow and noise on the analogue channels. Also we're supposed to get CBC French Edmonton on Ch. 16 UHF. Nothing there either.
We live in a condo apt. in Harvest Hills. Balcony/terrace faces East.
Any idea as to why I can't get the CFCN signal? Would sure like to the watch the Olympics in HD.
