Too strange...

I'm in Courtice, Ontario. For funzies, I made an antenna for myself using a short length of RJ59's bare copper touching the screw on a local power outlet. I got the TV to reprogram the channel list to see what would happen. I got two channels...

Channel 22 is a analog CBC repeater. The signal was just OK, which I found to my surprise was coming from an antenna only a mile or so from my house! So that one's not surprising.

Ahhh, but how about the really good reception on 23.1?! This is a station in Buffalo, miles away.

I guess the grounding length was something close to 5/8ths of that frequency?
