Well, I'm too damned cheap to buy an over the air antenna, so I built one with scraps I had laying around... I connected it all up, and checked fcc.gov's website.
It said I should get 6 channels and 2 would be weak.
I took 2 pieces of small opening expanded steel that I harvested from my bus's old a/c unit. (I don't believe it's aluminum, but it's something non-corrosive)
Took a 1.5" piece of conduit about 8' long and put it in an old dishnetwork tri-pod, made a top and bottom horizontal bar out of 3/4" PEX tubing, crossed over the expanded steel in an X pattern separating them with another piece of PEX, held in place with a big zip tie. Took 2 alligator clip jumper wires and connected them to the X and a 75ohm to 300ohm converter. Then coax to tv. (Making sure all connections were isolated left & right, respective of the crossover)
Set the tv to scan channels.... I picked up 18
I'll get a picture of my jerry rig when it's light outside.
I'm out $3.00 for the converter.
