Making My Own Antenna?

dcarch7August 1, 2010

I am in the NYC suburbs. Since TV had gone digital, I have tried several amplified rotating antennas. My reception has been less than acceptable. constant dropping out.

I am very handy and have some electronic skills. I would like to try to build my own.

I have an outdoor amplifier and an antenna rotor.

Any advice?

thanks in advance.
