This is a further development of the antenna shown by dragosurf, http://www.instructables.com/id/Stylish-HDTV-Antenna/. It is his design attached to a powered Radio Shack antenna (15-1880) sold about ten years ago. I am using this in our family room, which is half below ground. The RS antenna (as sold) was not able to pick-up and hold any of the digital signals in the Fort Wayne, IN area. It now picks-up and holds all available digital stations. I removed the two rabbit ears and were for VHF and the UHF bow-tie element. I then connected this antenna to the wires that had been connected to the UHF element. The mesh dish that I used to attached the antenna acts as a reflector.  I now have an excellent HDTV antenna..
