Making Your Own Antenna

This was a side project I did while working on improving the modern TV interface. I needed an antenna to try TvHeadEnd with. I tried a generic $20 amazon brand antenna and it only got a few channels. I decided to make my own extremely cheap antenna and I ended up getting almost double the channels.

Things you need:
Aluminium foil
Glue
Cardboard
Impedance Matching Transformer(~$4)
scissors
nuts and bolts(2), washers(2)

Instructions with pictures coming soon!
