I have been looking for the best TV antenna ever since I bought my new house, but they all were quite expensive. I was looking for something that would go long range so that I could catch as many stations as possible.
As I searched around the internet. I came across a video of a guy making a homemade HDTV antenna using coat hangers and a piece of wood.
After watching this video, I was very intrigued, and I was hoping that I could find someone who had created this thing that lives near my hometown. So I went to Google and put in a search and found John Kulp’s Blog who is actually in the same city as I am.
This antenna KILLS the price of the other antennas that I was looking at because all it costs you is:
1. 10 Feet of Copper Wire
2. 6 Washers
3. 6 Wood screws
4. 2-3 foot piece of Wood
5. 1 Balum or Transformer
6. Something that can cut the Wire
7. Drill / Screwdriver
8. Tape Measure
You probably have most of these items lying around your house except maybe the Transformer (~$2) and 10 Feet of Copper Wire (~$10).
With this antenna, I am able to VERY CLEARLY pick up ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, CW, LPB 1, 2 & 3, and a few other channels. Sure beats paying the cable company ~$20 a month!
Here are the schematics that I was going off of in the video:
I’m also a daily vlogger at my Vlogging Channel if you want to watch a video every day from me!
The first time that I picked up Actionz in the iTunes App Store, it reminded me of those Bop It games.
I decided to take part in the GE / Howcast / YouTube Physical Challenge for the healthymagination challenge.
What is the next activity that you guys want me to undertake in this Challenge? So far jakisalsome666 suggested that I do some Drum Lifts, and Brachelhawk suggested that I try to walk around with an apple on my head!
