Exclamation Antenna suggestions for Kanata Ontario

I would like to know what type of antenna would be best for my location in Kanata, Ontario, Canada.

http://www.tvfool.com/?option=com_wr...0b86ce8fbb4a1f

In the above report I did not specify a number of feet.

Secondly do you have to point an antenna like a Sat dish? If so, what direction?

Any other information or suggestions would be great.

I am tired of soaring cable tv costs!

Thanks!

As a first step, read the Signal Analysis FAQ that has a link on your report.

Those are good suggestions. If you want further help, especially about specific channels, consult with the OTA forum at digitalhome.ca. (Link) Be sure to read the welcome to new members thread before posting.
