My Aluminum foil version

.

Found 13 channels, but signal strength jumped from good to poor

This one had all the “engineering” specs for peak performance from what I was reading, but performed poorly in my tests. Every channel was pixelated. 

Rechecked all cables/connections. No change.  I had high hopes for this one and will try again with a sturdier copper wire/design as detailed on grasspoll.us.

 

Check the reception maps for available local channels in your area by zipcode. Any channels within a 35mi range of your zipcode, a DIY HDTV antenna may work!
