Our New Television Antenna

December 10, 2011 § 4 Comments

Our rabbit ear antenna worked pretty well even after one ear got lost but we thought we could do better. After looking around at various commercial and homemade antennas, we ran across a homemade design that a fellow had experimented with to receive VHS as well as UHF by varying the 1950’s coat hanger antenna.

We bought a board, some wire, and some screws, and a coaxial converter. It did not look pretty but it worked pretty well. We decided to go further and bought an antenna mounted amplifier and mounted everything on an extension painting pole.

The thin wire that we used does not show up well in the photographs but hopefully you can get the gist of it.
