I will simply delete your post in the moderation interface. If I'm your target audience you're really on the wrong track; I'll never click on a URL in your garbage. The post content is not emailed to me (and I don't use a Win32 mail client anyway), I view the posts in plain text in the moderation interface so no clever tricks of any kind will make anything you type be interpreted by anything other than me, a human. Just give up and go elsewhere please!

Great article on the UHF array. I have had nothing but frustration trying to get a TV signal. I live 50 miles from the nearest broadcast station.

Not having any pcb's, I used some brass strap epoxied to both sides of a wooden paint stirring stick and 12 ga. household wire. Worked great!

Made a second one for the main TV using the same strap on 1/2 in. plywood and mounted it inside the attic. This replaces a huge antenna on a tripod on the roof that NEVER worked as well.

Thank you for the help. I can now watch football (American) in hi-def.

Haha, thanks.

Quite a fan of your site too BTW, in particular you assorted inductance measuring devices. I've been meaning to combine an MCU driving an LCD with the carver LC test circuit to build a direct-reading LC meter.

"The higher melting point of this alloy compared to normal Tin/Lead solder made holding the shorter elements while soldering them to the boom quite a painful experience."

I love your understated sense of humor!

Nice clear description of you antenna, too.

Linked a lot as a good design for a self-built dvb-t UHF antenna I tried your design too for my experiments (mainly trying to find out how many dvb-t multiplexes I can find and how tropospheric tunneling can help for foreign signals). It works great. Details and reports about my dvb experiments
