Simple TV antenna kit.  Saw this antenna (lknown as the Walltenna) advertised for about thirty five dollars. We could not see paying that for such a simple design, so we made one ourself.  We was surprised how well it worked even for the crude model we made, excepting maybe one station that I really liked to watch.If it looks ugly, you can always cover it with a picture. Last frame is an antenna that has been around for years.Looks familliar

Finally made a sort of very crude "ClearTV" antenna. Yielded over 50 channels/

<p>Everyone if you want more channels check out.</p><p><a href="http://m4antenna.eastmasonvilleweather.com/index.html" rel="nofollow">http://m4antenna.eastmasonvilleweather.com/index.h...</a></p><p>They have 3 variants of 4 bay bow-ties. Remember the longer the whiskers the lower the channel the antenna is tuned. I made the 4 bay 9&quot; whisker 8.5&quot; spacing in foam core. I pick up 69 (real UHF channel 46) from Allentown PA from my office at Villanova University(BTW everyone has left for Huston)! That 36+ miles from inside a stone building. </p>
My main indoor antenna gets me over 120 channels.
<p>Had an old roll of copper tape for Tiffany glass. So I made one on foam cor board with the tap. I had to Scotch tape the cooper down because the adhesive on the copper was so old. I also connected the Balun to the mid points between the bow ties rather than run the lines to the bottom.I then wire tie the coax to the foam core. works great on the wall in my office.</p>
<p>Cool.</p>
<p>hey, How I can made the same antenna but a little more big, I would like to gain more channeles incresaing the size</p>
<p>Not and engineer, but the lengths are set to get the most stations, but.an in-line amp might be a better choice.</p>
