Some of the home made OTA DTV (over the air digital television) antennas I have tried (or going to try). I will add additional pictures as I test them.. Since your mileage may very I will not rate them. One was even just a telephone wire cable (not pictured yet). If you have any suggestions for antennas, please let me know.

There are lots of things to test. Vertical or horizontal position, whether they were meant to be uni-directional or omnidirectional, how populated are the stations are in your area, whether the stations are all in on major direction or spread out in a circle from you, and lastly what kind of signal booster are you using or not using.
