Above is my signal analysis. Any recommendations on suitable antennae or other required equipment would be appreciated. I would want to connect 2 TV's to the antenna. Thanks in advance.

Tv antennas and Tv reception

The Canada tv stations/channels are easy. Install a ChannelMaster CM3016 above the roof. Aim the antenna at about 8 degree magnetic compass. Here is how to aim antennas , http://www.kyes.com/antenna/pointing/pointing.html. No amplifier will be needed with the CM3016 antenna. Use a simple common 2 way splitter to connect the two tv's to the antenna. http://www.saveandreplay.com. Here are some roof top antenna mounts , http://www.ronard.com/909911.html , http://www.ronard.com/34424560.html , http://www.ronard.com/ychim.html , http://www.ronard.com

Tv antennas and Tv reception

For reception of these American stations , WNPI-DT 23 PBS , WNYF-LD 18 CBS and FOX , WCFE-DT 38 PBS . A Channel Master CM4228HD antenna with a Winegard AP8700 preamp will be installed above the roof and aimed at about 132 degree magnetic compass. . The CM4228HD and preamp , and the CM3016 antenna Will Be two separate antenna systems and Will Not be connected on to one coax. Separate coaxes and separate splitters will go to each tv. A Remote Control A/B antenna switch will be at each tv , the separate coaxes from each antenna and splitter will connect to the A/B switch and the output of the A/B switch will connect to the tv. http://www.saveandreplay.com

Thanks very much for the comprehensive analysis. I would like to pick up the PBS station(s), as I prefer the more local ones to the two I receive via satellite.
