Hi, you haven't indicated where your located as that makes a difference as to distance. One thing I have found is that you will need to get the antenna at a good height if your not in located in Toronto. I live in Brampton so in order for me to get WGRZ I have in on my roof on a 10 foot pole. You can also check the www.tvfools.com to see what your limits are to what you can get.

Then you should have no problem receiving it. Perhaps it could be your Pre-amp. Not sure if your have one installed, sometimes to go bad, Also to know that if your too close to the tower, the pre-amp maybe the problem as well, too much power can cause interference.

The first section of the TV fool report which is light in color means that those stations can be picked up with a simple indoor or outdoor antenna, anything after that requires special setups. If you need more help into other issues, there is a forum called Digital Home forum [Link: digitalhome.ca], lots of answers to your questions can be answered there and very knowledgeable people.

WGRZ was always unstable for me, 1 minute it works well, and disappears the next.

Last night I was watching Set Meyer, and at 1:00 AM, lost the signal completely, as if someone pulled the plug. This morning it is showing strong signal.

Is there maintenance work going on ?
