wysiwydg: Don't remove this vid please. This is very educational, and we still have
Analog signal for our TV here in our country for the next 2 years.
pleasedontsneeze: well said
Dariusc123456: Nice movie. I make an Advance Antenna with A Pringles Can, Wires, Sordering
Iron, and a Old Dish from an company. I might post an Video on how to make
one like I did.
Sterling20073: i agree, this kids awesome
Jethro Van Kins: hey mate, you made an ok vid but some tips for ur future videos are spend
some time editing your videos, this will cut down the video time and stop
those nasty cuts between shots. Also maybe post the materials in the
description so that you dont have to spend a minute or so telling us what
they are. And lastly please put vital info and steps in the description
because ur mic isnt top quality. so basically include vital info in
description and make ur vids a bit shorter for us with slow internet.
ChempediaTV: Hmmm......Stalker! Just Kidding. Hey Man just wait 1 more day......
Wavy Goon: im going to try it and if it works your smart dude.
gmcjetpilot: I really HATE know-it-all's that can't read. Read what I wrote & TELL me
where I said Digital TV* does not use the VHF BAND? WHERE? No where right.
I'm fully aware of the LVHF, HVHF & UHF spectrum & usage as an engineer &
ham. I know more about antennas then you ever will. Before you write
stupid, READ FIRST. No crap sherlock, digital TV* will use VHF & UHF bands,
but UHF will be utilized more. *GET A CLUE, it's NOT HDTV idiot, ITS
DIGITAL TV, which doesn't have to be HD.
Ryan Johnson: dude to manny jumpcuts couldent understand but i do get what your trying to
ChempediaTV: The reason the new antenna vid is not up let is because we keep perfecting
the design but we are about done so it will be up in the next few days.
Also like many of the comments have suggested i am working on making this
video shorter and edited!
K7DFA: What the individual who said "rotate it (the antenna) toward the signal"
really meant is you should find out where the broadcasting ANTENNA is
located and rotate the antenna so that the small end is pointed toward that
general direction. Unless you still are using "bunny ears", in which case
you should rotate them ("rabbit ears") so the ends are pointed 90 degrees
away from the broadcasting location (antenna).
CherylThePearl1: I meant you brute !
DarkSonicProductions: @nakayle thats not true ya know
1derofg8ness: People are too lazy (or stupid) the do quarter wave calculations and adjust
the lead length to pick up the corresponding freq, let alone look up the
broadcasting freq distance and direction of the tower. You're preaching to
spidermohmd1: some parts are cut ...didnt totally get it
ChempediaTV: Hey Guys I am working on a new movie! It is called "How to get free cable
TV". I am also working on a replacement antenna desiegn and vid for it!
ChempediaTV: Yeah Google is rumored to be be buying those bands for wifi or the gphone
Gregory Stec: Umm, antennas of all types can receive signals of all types. There is NO
such animal as an antenna that receives only analog signals or an antenna
that receives only digital signals. What you are building is a tuned
circuit, that is, a device that is better tuned to received the new
frequencies that have been labeled as 'digital.' Sorry to burst your bubble.
Sam Johnson: has anybody tried this, if so, does it work? compared to bunny ears, any
ChempediaTV: cool! my first antenna was made out of 2 soda cans!
ChempediaTV: Hey Guys thanks To your loyal support our new antenna video is almost done
and is set to be on Youtube Tommarow! The New design is way more DTV
friendly! Subscribe, ChempediaTV
ching chang: @weirdone17 chill hes jus showin stuff he knows i bet u dont even have the
brian to make something like that
justmecoop: what contry are you in
Nathan Kayle: @daiatlus79 Digital TV uses the same channels (and thus the same
wavelength) that was used by analog TV.
Annorax O'Krenim: Keep it simple and just wrap the aluminum foil around the cardboard and
connect that to your TV -- neither the magnet nor the "arm" on the antenna
are adding anything to the design.
Nathan Kayle: There's no such thing as an "analog" antenna or a "digital" antenna. It
doesn't make any difference to a antenna what form of modulation is used.
If it works well on one it will work well on the other.
Barry Villacarillo: can i have more than hundreds of channels when i use this? pls tell me.
AVERAGEINTELL: exellect work mate - bummer that your editing is so poor - makes it a
little hard to follow but i am going to give it a try
daiatlus79: @nakayle antennas are dependant upon the wavelength of the signal you are
trying to pick up. length, spacing etc are all important!
dan94519: Hey great video. I made one of these but I think it needs help, it didnt
work well. Can you help me diagnose the problem. I didnt have any solid
copper wire so I used stranded. Would that have made a difference? Also the
magnet is about twice the size of the one you used. Any help would be
chickenpoper: hehe he says "rooster" at 9:22 - 9:23 :P........btw get ur facts straight dude
this isnt a really good antenna ive made better
SmellULater: you sound like a demented friendless kid. maate learn to practice a speech
before you do this, as u sounded like a retard.
CSProductions: Reason why you have crap reception to start with is due to the antenna is
designed for VHF and not UHF, if you were to shorten the metal rods to
around 6" then it would work far more better. The ferrite is not an
amplifier, it makes the energy transfer more efficient from the antenna to
Jason Smith: This crap dont work i tryed it!
LainieLu1953: I believe that if you watched the video a second time, you will learn that
this young fellow called Mark Erickson's comments about electrical tape
"complete garbage." Start at the 4:56 mark if you don't believe me. Tsk.
Triggerhappycanadian: Nice video! I got 10 extra channels off the stuff and instructions you said!
cheesynuts1: the kid just wants to watch family guy
Jack Mears: nice video it helped loads :)
maxamillionent: I made this and it didn't work at all. I've followed the instructions
carefully. I don't see any single improvement. Please help.
muluken04: can you get more channels or wat?
y2ksingh: nice video
ChempediaTV: your right but this is a hack. our new antenna desiegn that we will be
posting shortly adresses this with a better desiegn.
CherylThePearl1: leave the kid alone you brut !
alexei green: lol.. You read while you explain......haha
Anthony Buchman: It's a good video, very good presentation. BUT, analog signal will be off
the air in Feb. 2008 here in the US. But, as I said in other videos there
are no digital antenna.
darkpersonhi: get a converter box no duh
John zote: What a bunch of hooie
Jim MacDonald: This did help and took me less than 5 min so it will do until i hook up the
