In the past week I have made 2 antennas for HDTV reception from a 'How To' I saw on You Tube. I have a Channel Master 4228 & I didn't want to split the signal from it. I tried this homemade antenna & it works almost as good as the 4228 one of the best UHF antennas availiable. It's made with a 1" x 3"x 2.5 ' piece of wood & 6 coat hangers. All I had to buy was a $2. balun (transformer) & 12 small wood screws & washers. Try it, I was really suprised how well it worked. Search on You Tube for "Coat Hanger HDTV Antenna" or videos posted by babblin5, it will tell everything you need to know. Please let me know what kind of luck you have. PS a Dremel tool was handy to clean contact areas & to smooth rough edges on coat hanger parts.
