I have been unemployed for a couple of years now so money is ridiculously tight, as such I have had
to down-size or eliminate Luxury items, Cable service being one of those items- I purchased $10 rabbit ear antenna That
got me 2 whole channels, three on a good day- so I hit the web and discovered this tutorial for an antenna http://www.squidoo.com/make-this-powerful-hdtv-antenna-out-of-cardboard
I now get 29 channels and it didn't cost me a thing - made completely from things around the house
This is actually the second one I have made, I modified the design slightly- I changed the feet so it's more stable and
the arms that hold the "bow ties" to make it sturdier and finally place a hole at the bottom to allow the cable to
be run between the "bow ties" instead of off to the side of them.
