Just got my antenna built using the plans from Make:TV.

http://blog.makezine.com/archive/2009/0 ... adyca.html

Ended up receiving 9 more digital signals as opposed to standard rabbit ears. Now I just need to find a way to conceal the antenna to avoid incurring the aesthetic wrath of the wife. Wondering if I could put it in the attic and run coaxial down the nearest wall.

That's a tempting project.

I can't wait to try this. Up here in St. Cloud, the rabbit ears + DTV converter = ion life(family television channel) only. :cry: . We didn't wan't to through up the ET searching tower antenna, but maybe this could fit in the attic. Thank you for giving me hope!

It works surprisingly well, like I said. If you want to get exact estimates on what you will need in terms of an antenna/direction to point it, you can plug your address in over here:

It will give you a list of available channels, and what kind of antenna you would need to receive them.
