Terk MFTV1A Omnidirectional OTA TV antenna. I will use it outdoors on my antenna mast
My existing “Over The Air” broadcast TV antenna, an Antennas Direct DB4e, has a range of about 60º, but my house here in Toronto, Canada is situated with TV stations in the range of 70-80º. However I point my antenna, either I drop stations from the east in Buffalo, or west in Hamilton. Smack in the middle of my range are the overly strong stations of Toronto, which can overpower weaker stations. I am attempting to use a Terk MFTV1A indoor omnidirectional antenna, installed outdoors on my antenna mast, to increase my antenna range to beyond 60º.
I gave Rogers the heave ho, for both cable and internet, and feel better for it. Scummy, predatory, their service was. Over the air TV has replaced cable. It is not what we are used to, but saves us over $70 each month. Overall I would say that we are much better off without Rogers cable.
Over the air (OTA) TV is not all fantastic, though I did not know all the disadvantages and underestimated the advantages. I will discuss all I learned. With OTA we get 17 channels, which includes a couple of duplicate HD and SD channels, a French channel, though it comes in stunning HD, and a religious channel, also in stunning HD.
