Hi There!

First let me give my appreciation for the owner of this website, for providing complete list of HDTV channels for Toronto & Buffalo area. It is very helpful for our HDTV Antenna setup.

Just for fun, I have recently create a dishpointer like web site for HDTV Antenna Pointer. Here is the first version:

http://hdtvpointer.efglobe.com

There are many TV Towers around Buffalo area, however the initial version only support Toronto CN Tower and Buffalo's Grand Island. Please post any ideas to get this HDTV Antenna pointer better.

Regards!

Just added 13 TV Towers to the applications, mostly Buffalo and Southern Ontario.

User could choose two towers at a time.

Just added few features:
1. When click the TV Tower, it will show the TV Channels it broadcasts.
2. When change the TV Tower, the pointer will change dynamically, no need to click submit button.
3. When move the home marker, the address field will be filled with the current address of the marker.

Hamilton is on the list. Please help verify the channels are ccomplete and accurate for Hamilton tower.

Would it be possible to add compass bearings to the description, in degrees, would make aiming an antenna much easier, simply set a compass down beside the antenna set the direction of travel on the compass to point towards where you want it to go, then with the compass needle pointing north, match the antenna to the match the compass' direction of travel arrow.
