I like many other people go out and buy those "HDTV antennas". It worked, ok I had to get up and adjust it to that crisp picture we all love and then the artifacting starts. I paid $30.00 for it.
Well yesterday I saw this on the internet and had to try it, and with what I had around the house made an antenna that is far superior that something I paid darn good money for.
