Archive for 'Pointing your Antenna'

I was going to write a couple of posts about the different types of TV antennas available, but I have come across  a webage (OTA FAQ ) that should contain all the information you need to help you decide to stay with your current TV antenna or whether you need a new one.

If you find any of the information confusing you can always email me with your questions and I will do my best to answer them.


We  currently broadcast 3 Canadian TV Networks in the Topley -Houston-Telkwa-Smithers area.

These are Global BC, CTV BC,  Knowledge Network.   CBC (CFTK/TV7) is also available.

Most  Knowledge Network channels are on UHF  (  Channels  18, 20, 31 ).

The remainder of the channels are broadcast on VHF.

A list of the transmitter locations is located here.  Local TV Stations

A good tool for finding which direction to point your antenna is located at a website called TVFOOL.

Don’t let the name fool you, this website will provide all the information you need to find the stations you should be able to pick up at your home !  Give it a try.
