I made one out of cans and cardboard - it does actually work. If I do this again I'll post an Instructable, but look at it - you'd do as well on your own.

I used this link as reference

Here is a good antenna all you need is coat hangers, ply wood, and a few small pieces. After that just wire up your house with coaxial cable and a few splitters.

TIP: as of June 12, 2009 (NOT FEBRUARY 17TH) all analog signals will go offline.
(IF CONGRESS STOPS FIGHTING ABOUT THE DATE)

WARNING SOME CHANNELS WILL SHUT OFF THEIR SIGNALS ON THE ORIGINAL DATE OF FEB. 17th but it is mandatory as of June 12th 2009 for all major broadcasters.
