I'd guess tropospheric propogation.
That's what it is. I notice more often in the summer and at night you can easily pick up distant stations. Back in the analog days, in St. Catharines we'd get WKBD Fox 50 Detroit (not Fox anymore) and WWTI 50 from Watertown just by turning the antenna. We'd get Global from Midland and stations from Clevelnad too. Even as far as Youngstown, OH. Just don't expect to get those channels all the time.
Last night I was able to add CFPL 10 London and the signal for me from CKCO 13 in Kitchener was higher (97%) than CFTO 9 from Toronto!
Glad to hear you're happy with your HBU55. That's likely the antenna I'm going to go with when I need to replace my 22 year old Delhi929. I prefer the traditional look of those antennas.
