Welcome, byruda:

I suggest you go here to answer some of your questions; they know more about your local stations than I do:
Over-The-Air (OTA) Digital Television > OTA Reception Results
http://www.digitalhome.ca/forum/129-...ption-results/

ON - Ottawa, Vanier, Gloucester, Orleans - OTA
http://www.digitalhome.ca/forum/129-...leans-ota.html

But I'll try to answer a few:

1) Signal report CIII-DT (vc 14.1) is shown on Samsung as Global Network CIII-HD (vc 6.1)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CIII-DT
scroll down to transmitters

2) Signal report does not list CBOFT-D shown on Samsung at vc 9.1, CBC French

4) Samsung displays a channel labelled OMNI2 on vc 14.1 not CIII-DT as shown on signal report
5) Samsung displays a channel labelled OMNI1 on vc 60.1. not CIII-DT as shown on signal report (see item 1, above). Signal report does not list any vc 60.1

The distant TV channel I would like to receive is WNPI-DT, real channel 23 with a NM(db) of -4.1.
This will be difficult. You have identified some, but not all, of the problems.
Quote:
will enable me to receive reliably the PBS TV and FM stations I am interested in, as well as the OTA local digital television stations I currently receive with a small external TV antenna mounted on my back deck.
I think you will need separate systems for local and PBS.
Quote:
Receiving WWNY, real channel 7, NM(db) -12.9, would be a bonus.
That will never be reliable; it's Tropo.
