That's what I use for VHF and I get both CTV stations.

You should also be okay for the Hamilton stations, probably without using a preamp. You'll probably need a preamp for some of the weaker Toronto stations.I think you'll only get Buffalo when the tropospheric conditions are ideal. I'd also look at getting a rotor because the angles between Kitchener, Hamilton, and Toronto are Wide.

Thanks, I'm wondering if the advice in the 2nd post here is still relevant regarding using a Winegard and pointing it 86 degrees east to attempt to get Kitchener and Toronto? Just flip flopping the idea that the winegard might be a better option for me

I have a CM7777 pre-amp, so good to go there
