Antenna issues- loss of signal with a DIY antenna Answered
Recently, I have made an HDTV antenna using a video from youtube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EWQhlmJTMzw) and some inspiration from Instructables that I have read. The issue i'm having is that I am slowly losing my signal. I noticed the rust build-up on the end of the fins of it and I have cleaned them up, but it didn't help.
Another issue is that I can't seem to pick up a local channel, yet on clear nights I pick up channels from 100 miles away. ( I live in Winchester, Ky and I pick up Cincinatti channels) Anyone have any ideas? Maybe re-work the metal parts with a different type of metal? Maybe a few ideas on different designs?
