BigCoop 17: had all this stuff in the garage only I ran it in 1\2 inch PVC with a coupling at the bottom of the tin and ran it with straps high up for a friend who had bad signal and it worked great...40 channels in the north east part of Florida Jacksonville...they are so happy !!!! and the picture is clear!!!
Nortonthecat IS MY CAT: what is the point of connecting the wires to two different points if they are connected by the ring. this cannot work.
Charles H. Wiemeier: i like it super simple
Don Brillantes: What the ..... you make it shorted, if the 5v control of the antenna is open the unit break instantly.
Donald McAffee: why not use the lid so you don't have to cut the bottom piece down to 1/2 rim and the lid is knurled already and won't cut you ?
Edward Caissie: I can't believe this video got that many views really it sucked didn't teach anything lol your gay
Eashwer B. Iyer: When soldering the cable to the biscuit tin, did you solder both - the inner cable to the top and the ground to the lower half?
Im J: Just made this out in New Mexico. (Part of the US LOL) It's not strong enough to pick up all channels. Any advise? Amp maybe?
101perspective: I tried doing this project. I ate the butter cookies... that's as far as I got.
Be like Me: who is watching this but too lazy to try?
Arthur Hau: So you have something like a bowtie antenna with the broader ends of the bowtie attached by a ring, the rim of the cookie can. Will it be better if you remove the ring and instead mount your bowtie to a piece of cardboard? Just a wild guess.
Hd amp: Dear friend, what is the music playing in the background?--cheers!
Kal Jak: thanks for the spam bs app link in your description, hope you enjoy the 2 cent clickbater
jimvandamme: The Gray-Hoverman is the highest gain, best front to back ratio, and is fairly easy to build. Bow tie is the runnerup.
If you're close to the TV stations, any piece of wire will pick up something. Your tin can is vertically polarized, so it's taking a big hit. Just turn it sideways.
s550 k: This worked like a charm man, if you live in the tri-state this is mind blowing. Nice video. Thanks alot
VideoGrabaciones: Why build it when you can buy it very inexpensive? The only reason: grade school science project under instructors or parents supervision.
steve allen: got 5 channels. got 5 just by grounding coax to a light switch. this didnt get me more. must be location.
