Can I build my own antenna?
Yes. Stick to proven online designs such as the Gray-Hoverman, pennyloop, stealth hawk, bowtie, etc. These simple DIY antennas have been designed with the proper calculated loop and bar lengths.
Do I need an amplified antenna?
Amplifiers are for long cable runs between antenna and TV. Do your research before wasting your money on an amplified antenna.
