The original installation is not even code in Ontario Canada. It's probably the misinterpretation of the code/shortcut by the installer.

Cool ADTech.

It hit me this morning, CFTO shows CTV programs and as of August 31 CHEX started showing CTV programs. The only difference might be the local newscasts.

ADTech, would a Antenna's Direct DB8e pointed at 220 magnetic be a good choice? The OP should still get CFTO and maybe CHCH & Global?

You could try the HD7696P aimed at 280 degree magnetic to try to get 3 stations but you would need a rotator to get the others. Most of them show CTV programming.

Yes, the CM 3414 needs power so it can add db instead of remove them as the splitter will. It maintains the signal from point B to point C.
