CCRider100: @oPeNpLAiNs "I've seen coat hangers work from a couple miles away, and
anything more than 5-10 miles depending on terrain, you need a real
antenna" The key words are "depending on Terrain". Good OTA reception is
"location" dependent, your homes height above sea level and obstructions
between your antenna and TV towers can make all the difference. I get all
the local stations (9-38 miles) with speaker wire for antenna. The website
tvfool.com provides a great free resource for budding OTA'ers
WalkingHD: analog wont go off until a little bit yet, there is just far too many
people to convert and when they do flip that switch they want to make dam
sure that everyone is DTV ready otherwise ratings for shows are going to
fall because no one can watch it. Its going to be a slow slow process.
iseemedia: "Powerful" isn't what you should say - best performance is better - the
antenna can't transmit so isn't powerful. Great video tho :D
ArtemRomanov: You named this video false. Better to say: "Most Powerful Antenna in my
calmoves: 12 Channels? Don't you think thats too much work for 12 channels.
Benjamin Pavel: @paranormal33 google Coaxil cable ....and then google about Antennas so you
will understand about Coil part....hope with this you will understand
EterniaRz: GReat guide HAIL OLD MAN!
19psi: "Most powerful antenna" gets a whole 12 channels! HAHA! My Winegard 9032 on
a rotator brings in over 60 channels ranging from 60 to 100 miles away.
Amazing how well ATSC works when you actually buy quality equipment, get on
your roof and do the job right. My FTA satellite dish setup adds about
another 1,000 TV and Music channels from all over the world. Antenna and
dish setups, less than $500 combined. Monthly fee $0.
Hellsconsort: Whole metal fence haha. Pretty good Antenna! =)
bpeteyp: MOST POWERFUL ANTENNA ... (gets 12 channels) (-.-)
A Ebel: @filmnet I checked out the website, the site is down and does not exist
anymore. You're right about that. A cheap 10 yagi would work much better.
satelliteDNScastip: this is a super excellent video!!! thanks for upload and make more
elfranz: I think you're clearly right, but according to your "-5", people always
like being ignorant...
Ioannis Lougos: yeap!!! i also see houses around (means in at least a village!!!) Alot of
villages in Greece have more than 20 channels!!!! by a simple unamplified
Vagextrol: 1DanielChristensen, 100 miles ?? Earth curvature does not permits you to go
further than 60-70 miles. What planet you live on? ..must be bigger than
Earth. Look on wikipedia.
Moneymax3001: We don't have a Home Depot or Ace Hardware to get a ground wire... if I dig
deep enough can I maybe find a ground wire in my back yard?? And when is it
best to plant these ground wires so i can have a nice little harvest of
ground wires next year?? Imma gonna makea... lottz o money selling ground
wires on eBay!!!! LOL maxwell
peterklate: THATS SO COOL
onanidaily: "Most Powerful Antenna!" - how many watts are you transmitting ?
Zjedi: That website don't exist anymore.
CVSoft: From ALL TV towers and repeaters? Including the 8 watt FM repeater 40 miles
away on the same frequency as a 70kW local broadcast station? I THINK NOT.
Gerardo B: If I were older, and could get a job I would buy this.
Jake Faulkner: just get some real satellite tv ya cheap bastard!
techphy100: I work for Yoda Zeight Blue Za Signalweiy on Carfeignhoy and if you add
another cable you'll get R two D two radio talk show.
Arow27: Wrong, Im a Dish Net tech and if I dont grond all the jobs I go fix /
Install, Its auto Fail QC and I get backcharged for not Grouding!
NiccoR: I think he is talking about coaxial cable.
Ahmed Saanee: We have 5 of that things and now we can access he world
oPeNpLAiNs: ***DONT WASTE YOUR TIME FOLKS!!!*** 1st off! If your ground is not bonded
to your house electrical. It isn't grounded properly, and now you're
getting into insurance matters if something does happen... 2nd I've seen
coat hangers work from a couple miles away, and anything more than 5-10
miles depending on terrain, you need a real antenna. This is coming from
someone who has professionally installed satellite, cable, and antennas for
12 years! 90% of my job is fixing stuff like this!
Gamernotnerd: I have a TV just like that, Sansui? PM me.
A Ebel: A great solution for HDTV. Does this work in apartment buildings?
Nicolas S: Go Toronto!!!
paranormal33: What's a "coyaxial coil"??
Riyan R: its coaxial
1DanielChristensen: @youmanalex prove it; I want to see that; 48 channels.
Snargle Bawls: I'll stick with my 30 HD channel coat hangar antenna, thanks.
TAurealius: The company is out of business!!!
compwiz878: @Dummerd way back in the mid to late 80s we had a tv antenna to get tv
stations but on good conditions we could get a lot of dx tv reception for
exampt wtbs atlanta ga was a good station to get but there where alot of
other stations that would come in on local stations channels at times
takeing over local stations signals when conditions wheer extremely good .
then in the early 90's we got cable on my road and even then at night some
ota stations signed off
ptf46: and i forgot if you dial up the flux capacitor you could actualy pull in
some stations from the moon the programing there is great mostly the
government dosent want you to know about it because they want to keep it
all for them selves. your dish uses 13 to 18 volts depending on the
transponder and if you can pull in the left and right polarity your set i
have even see HBO from the moon station. dont waste your money on these
junk antennas just buy yagi with an amp and a rotor,
angryadrien: three important words for the cameraman....GET A TRIPOD!
algorithmical: a "coyaxial" is Engrish for "coaxial"
Kargaroc286: that's insane. you will need a satellite dish for that.
ATLien174: I built the "Double" hanger antenna. I used the single antenna ideak found
hear on youtube, and made a double version of it.
A Ebel: Sounds like something that we all need for the DTV 02/17/09 transistion
cause most of the DTV signals are very difficult to get. The antenna looks
good there. Will there be any plans for this antenna soon?
Gerardo La Rocca: Uh, sporadic E and tropo Ducting make Vhf travel hundreds if not thousands
DoofNoofem: Unless the dish diameter is multiples of the target wavelength, there's no
point in using a parabola; a flat wire-rod or wire-mesh reflector is better
as it has less wind-resistance. The spacing between the reflector and
receiving-element should be dictated by the average (if not exact)
wavelength being used and not by the design of the satellite dish being
cannibalized. I can just imagine what a mess the elements are. This antenna
design is a joke...(continued...damned text limit)...
azxsdcvfgb77: it doesn't matter how powerful it is.... it's size and direction matters,
if you have a powerful one that isn't direct, it will get interference.
Green Power Farm: Hey man,,,I need to build an antana. How did you build your antana? Thanks.
compwiz878: @compwiz878 signed off for the night mostly wheer the public broadcast
stations we got on cable one of them is wnpb westvirginia public
broadcasting that was on ch 24 via ota a toledo ohio station would come
realy clear at times the fade in and out
zac856314: @paranormal33 Cable line. it is a fancy word for cable wire
heretic30176: Yes. A metal fence, with stakes into the ground, is in fact a grounding
point. And this is just the television use of a well used concept called a
cantenna. Google it and stop spouting your ignorance, it's infectious.
