    I found this pic of my dad's house...

    So, I wasn't sure where to put this, but I had said I seen the basement of my dad's house, and it looked like Coax-hell. Let me share a pic with you, I wonder what antenna's he has up, I can ask him, however he's often busy, and he would want to talk for hours about it. I will eventually ask...

    So, I went to a scratch n dent store on a whim... I head to the electronics area, and there they have... 5 Antennas Direct Clearstream 4's marked at $60 each, but the sign I read when I walked in stated 50% off store-wide! Also I noticed 1 Clearstream 2V. I picked up the Clearstream 4, I'm...

    Ok, asking for input once again!

    I've added some photo's of what I have so far, actually I've been spouting out I had a DB-2 to test, and was doing well! Well I made an error, I only had a DB-1 in my window! I built my DB-2, and realized then I had to build yet another DB-2 to make a DB-4! lmao... Ugg! Ok, so I got the DB-2...

    I'm doing a copy of...

    dkreichen1968's Antenna Design. I hope it's okay! :\ I did some calculations, and measured once, and may re-cut it later. I added some possible outdoor protection with a good thought/bad idea (once the process was started lol...). I originally wanted to make the antenna for Ch. 7 174mhz. I...

    Local Antenna Installer

    I called 1 local Antenna Installer (Professional maybe?) I inquired about my location, and asked if they had a tool to survey the area with to find the best location to install an antenna. They could only state they use an FCC site. I tried to talk a bit every so often, but I have a lot of...

    Homemade TV Antenna designs!

    (Remove if sticky'd: Alright this is just another crazy suggestion, but I have been racking my brain on this site *and probably over looking it*, I have seen dkreichen1968's plans for his antenna. I wanted to look it over again as I think I would like to give it a try, maybe modify it a bit for...

    Review: QuantumFX ANT 5

    I picked up one of these at the Goodwill (it was still sealed) for $5. So on that note, I had to try it out. It's a tad smaller than what my first project would have been. This is a bit of a review, not sure how to do such a review considering my experience. However, after goofing with my...

    Test antenna mount ideas?

    I'm looking for a temporary solution to get an antenna to 15-20 feet, for a few days for some testing. Or even a permanent solution. Only thing I can think of so far is a flag pole mount. I sure hope a better solution comes about lol!!! I don't feel secure about where my idea is going! :D...

    Powered Director/Non-powered Antenna?

    If a powered antenna would create noise, what about a powered director, or a powered reflector, or both. What would the results be? Has anyone tried this, or thought of it? I've seen a lot of bad about a "Powered Antenna" or a little good. The thought crossed my mind because a director can't...

    Question about a unique situation.

    I have strangely wondered why my Antenna's facing north would pull in signals East and West, and even South-West. I think I may have stumbled upon an explanation. As it is very very particular on placement when I face it north, however signals are near equal. I have decided to look in the LOS of...

    TV F-Connector Saver

    Long ago, my father was making the switch to Satellite from Antenna TV. He was happy about the switch for a few months. Time came up for the 3-month special. The truth about Satellite came to him in an envelope, in the form of a bill. So, I came to visit to witness how much the bill went up. We...
