Paper Clip Antenna

I actually made this as a baseline to see if the 50 ft coax that I am running into my attic is acting as an antenna. Surprisingly, I was able to get two local channels. Very weak signal though. (See the broadcast tower information for my area at TV Fool.)



NOTE: All of the antenna designs on this site are intended for INDOOR use. I prefer to mount mine in the attic. Please research carefully if you want to mount an antenna outdoors. There are many design and safety considerations that you will need to keep in mind.
