I am curious how many of you folks have used homemade antennas to receive your OTA channels? Also, how does performance of your homemade one compare to any commercially produced ones that you may use or have used? I made my own and set it up in my attic. I was surprised at how many channels I can pick up. I am directly in line between several stations about 10-11 miles to the southeast of me and several more about 48-50 miles to the northwest. I have my antenna pointed to the northwest and I get all the stations in both ways as well as one to the north-northwest about 30 miles and one to the north east about 30 miles. Then, at night I can usually pick up several stations to the south about 75 miles. Normally when I do a scan we pick up 50 something channels. It has been up in the 80s before when the weather was just right at night. I've considered buying a commercially made unit and a rotor, but have never pulled the trigger and spent the money. Anyhow I'm thinking I just happen to be in a good spot and everything somehow is cobbled together just right.
