The new DTV signals aren't all UHF, so attatch some more coat hangers to your MAKE gray-hoverman antenna
Simple attatchment of two more coat hangers, to catch larger wavelengths
I'll start backwards, I added approximately five feet of wire, at the contacts for the transformer. Suspended by fishing line tied at the ends, resting on top screws of antenna
Is this the proper size for VHF channels?, probably not. But, I do receive PBS in Sacramento from twenty miles away, so GOOD ENOUGH. Each vhf arm is one coat hanger.
