It's hard to see but it looks like you made 2 half circles. It should be 1 circle with 1 break where you attach the 300 ohm to 75 ohm converter. You could just bridge across the end that's not connected to the converter Also, if you're using RG59 cable the signal won't be as good as RG6. I also put an antenna amplifier on mine. The one I use sells for around $30.
Thanks for posting this. I made 2 of these. The first one was with copper tubing that I already had. It worked well but it wasn't very pretty. The second one was built using 1/2 x 1/16 inch aluminum bar stock. It works as good or better than the first one and looks better.

Very nice!I bought a brand new factory made waterbed shortly after my girlfriend dumped me in 1985. We had one and it stayed with her. I couldn't sleep well on a standard mattress so I pulled the trigger on a four post queen size with white oak head/foot boards. Been using it ever since. I've gone through about three mattresses and a couple of heaters but at about $100/mattress I don't mind.
