(Feb. 13, 2009) ESCONDIDO, CALIF.: Jim Lipka is demonstrating that pricey “HDTV” antennas aren’t necessary to pull in digital TV signals. Lipka is getting press for making functional TV antennas out of wire hangers and what appear to be picket-fence slats. He’s putting the devices together at less than $10 each, giving them away to African refugees at his church so they don’t lose TV reception when the city’s stations transition this coming Tuesday (notwithstanding they have converter boxes or a DTV receiver).
