Fractal Magic DIY HDTV Antenna Kit Now Available Answered

A kit containing all the materials needed to build the Fractal Magic DIY HDTV Antenna is now available on ebay as Item #321089509004.  This kit was put together as an aid to those people that don't have the time, or inclination, to go hunting for the materials needed to build the antenna. 
This is the link to the new kit on ebay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/321089509004?ru=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fsch%2Fi.html%3F_from%3DR40%26_sacat%3D0%26_nkw%3D321089509004%26_rdc%3D1

are you still selling kits?

No, there wasn't enough demand for them to make it worth the time to put the kits together and mail them.

Added link to ebay to comment text.

You might want to put up a link both to your original, and most excellent, Instructable as well as a link to your e-Bay item. You can edit the text above by clicking the [Edit] button under "Author Options" in the right-hand sidebar.

You may also want to add a link to your e-Bay kit to the Instructable itself, either at the beginning or at the end. I'bles doesn't consider this sort of thing "spam," since your I'ble stands on its own: the kit you're selling just makes the project easier for people.

ONE MORE TIME! :-) I have resolved the problems with the parts for the kit and have listed it again on ebay (Item #321089509004). The kit now comes with 6-feet of 300 Ohm twin lead antenna cable and a 300-75 Ohm Matching Transformer with spade lug connections in place of the 6-feet of coax. The kit is now shipped in a mailing tube that provides more protection for the kit parts than being mailed in a flat padded envelope.
Although the addition of the matching transformer and the mailing tube have added cost to the kit, I'm still selling it at the original listed price of $9.95 + Postage.

Due to problems with parts of the kit I received from suppliers, I have removed this kit from ebay. I hope I can fix the problems with the kit and again offer it for sale. The cost of buying enough coax, copper wire, etc. and having the antenna form printed, plus the costs of listing the kits on ebay pretty much made this a "break even" deal for me. So having the long awaited 50 - 10.5 x 16 inch padded mailing envelopes I had ordered finally arrive and be 10.5 x 15 inch (3/4 inch too short) was "the straw" that made me decide to remove the kit from ebay until I resolved all the problems.

got mine ordered! Thanks!
