My Digital Antennas

My Digital Antennas

20161001_092855 Simply made of plastic or acrylic clipboards.

Cost fifty cents.  Made with stuff from home.

Made with flat adhesive copper wire, solder, and some coax cable.

It has since been converted to flat adhesive copper.

This is the latest 50 cent clipboard.

I use it for the kitchen TV to get the local channel CTV.


I used to get CBC on just a coaxial wire by the window before TV stations switched to digital broadcasting.

For my next Digital Antennas I’m going to use a heavy gauge copper, maybe even copper tubing.  I’ll add pics and results to this page when it’s in progress and done.
