After finding i no longer watched tv and had turned to the Internet for entertainment i had decided to stop giving Rogers my money. Altho after a few months i started to miss it, and with an idea my roommate had and me remembering new flat screens have Digital tuners built in i was on a mission to get my basic local channels back.
We stared with a basic set of bunny ears and found the signal was not to strong for some channels so i had decided to make my own, *lucky i work in construction and have scrap materials available at my disposable, so the plan was a go.
Step 1: Materials/Tools
- Scrap 1 5/8" steel Stud/Track
- Scrap Wood
- Kelly screws
- Drywall screws
- Medium gauge wire
- 300 Oms to 75 Oms Transformer
And a few tools:
- Drill w/ Phillips bit
- Utility Knife/Side Cutters
- Measuring tape
- Tin snips
Step 2: Making the frame
For this step the size dose not matter, as my design was limited by the amount of track i had. So to say, Its as big as you shortest peace.
I went with 12" of track witch gave me 1 foot wide sections and 24`stud for a hight of 2 feet.
Step 3: Making the frame Cont.
Start by assembling the Track and Stud in to squares or in my case a rectangle.
Stud sit in side of track and goes vertical apposed to track witch goes horizontal.
After you have your shapes, fire some Kelly screws in to each of the joints on both sides.
