Did this video help you?

Mickey Raton: To ground the antenna, does that have to be connected to the pole you're referring to in the video or can a copper grounding rod be used?

devkat2112: Thanks for all the good comments. The antenna is still working, although I still get the signal cutting out on some channels. I don't think I can ever totally get rid of it because planes fly overhead. BTW, All the materials came from Radio Shack even that little ampliflier.

BlazejLW10: @Prothink2 omg finally some1 said the truth. idk how todays american people are dumb enough not 2 recognize that all that crap on TV is ran by jews. theyre the reasons both wars were fought, and they were the ones who came up with comunism and other diabolic ideas like that. wont go into it that much but just read andrew hitchroosters sinagauge of satan. it describes it all.

superblitz: the longer the coax, the more degraded the signal will become.

sevan7: Thanks for posting this. Now I have an idea what I need to do and the materials I need. I love Youtube an people like you who take the time to post things and help other people out. Thanks!

redneckbryon: How many channels do you get with that type of antenna?

kojamoz: @BlazejLW10 It's spelt "Communism" and "Synagogue" you peanut.

ROG M: on the coax, coming from the antena in to the house. right befor its going in to the house you need to make a loop. the loop prevents rain water going in to the house. FYI

alwaysopen: This was pretty informational by demonstrating a mounting bracket I had never seen before. Did you say you got it at Radio Shack? Something that gave me a chuckle was the fact that the old guy was a little lost when it comes to wiring. A razor knife is the last tool I would like to use for stripping wire but I wouldn't hack at it. He didn't even twist the wire tight before trying to wrap it around the ground bracket. It was like watching Benny Hill.

lMP0SSIBLE: you wasted half a day, risking falling of the roof and having all that messy cabling for what? Maybe $100 that you would have to pay to a professional. No thank you

EasyListeningLounge: Try a Winegard Peramplifier. It will help your reception a lot.

vorkev1: o i forgot use solid wire for the ground as it will not melt as fast

Nate Ngzcaz: where did the signal strength come from ?

101AOK: On e guy says you took a chance climbing on the roof instead of paying $100 TO HAVE IT INSTALLED. WHAT ??? I'll climb the roof for $20 and I'm, disabled Must be nice to $ to piss away! Good vid rock on!

Nick Kat: why do u need a ground wire for a tv antenna for??? here in australia we dont have that!

crookcirca80: Good advice on the RG6, but I have to disagree with the ground wire advice. First of all, a good size wire to use is #6 AWG, and there is no solid wire produced for this size of ground anymore. Also, solid/stranded really makes no difference for "melting" under identical loads. Stick with the stranded stuff, works just fine.

mac4417: funny...."got our nuts on this backside"!!! Thanks for the valuable information. For those who do not have a grounding post - you can ground your wire on an exterior pipe.

vorkev1: use better coax for less signel loss something like rg6 or rg-9 something thick the thicker the better and the lower lose the cable the better also you are broubley useing a cheap crapy amp looks like a inline wich is made for 1 tv. and when you get you splitter you want 1ghz or higher with lo lose. grounding should go to its won ground in the ground as when grounding to ther grounds can couse interference.

MrWart101: nothing wrong with using a box cutter to strip cable, if you are capable of doing so!!!

Mario Trottier: Poor guy ,,all this false information ,not to insult this page but this is very sad.

razz: Clever, good tip.

fractal_force: awesome

meroque: great samsung tv!!! i need to install my antenna too!

puremongrel: Boring

CliveGains80s: how many rg6 can go into antennia. is there an adaptor for 2? see we had 2 seperate rg6, no splitter of one cable, to 2 seperate tv outlets. Well former cable company used an existing tv line and now no free to air on that outlet. im thinking of following rg6 from wall though roof. There an isolator box outside with 2 rg6 leads?. i dont understand it. what the earth can i do.

MegaMusic1964: Try a Winegard preamplifier. It will improve your reception. You can order them from Amazon.com

Evil Dude: @ngzcaz the TV, it's in the settings menu, if you have a newer TV you'll find it.

traviswhat: id say it was an electrical supplier

AerialInstallerLeeds: Great guide! We've put together a more basic guide but your guide is great!

RicoshetSC: Camera man -"not bad for a bunch of amateurs" Guy using a box cutter to strip cable-"speak for yourself" I do believe he can speak for you also sir.

Roof Handles: An amplifier won't help with reception. FULL STOP ! An antenna is used for reception of signal. An amplifier will overcome signal loss due to infrastructure ie joins and splitters. If you are receiving rubbish you will amplify or 'boost' your rubbish. You need line of sight ideally, a quality antenna tuned to the frequency you wish to receive ( band 4 and 5 say) and a signal strength meter to get you in the right direction. When your drain is blocked you call a plumber, for TV call a ----

traviswhat: don't bend the coax though make a neat loop you don't want to break the connection

abprice76: I don't have a spare $100.00 so this sounds good to me.

Rieksfier: wire strippers are your friend.

radioxdeath: thanks for posting!! Question where did you get the antenna mounting bracket(s) at? thanks!! :D

DumpYourTelevision: This is very lame.

snowbird29803: Lightning likes to travel in a straight line. Better to run ground wire straight down to a dedicated ground rod. Use some type of stand-offs (or span) f/the wire to help avoid melted siding and to limit number of fire trucks needed. You can bond your new rod to any others. An improvement would be to route coax down to the ground and place your ground "block" right there at the ground rod. Route coax to your interior. Shine up all ground connections including the rod; use sand paper on rod top.

RealmEternal: Good job, must have got nerves of steel to climb up there and do the installation.

redman840: @MrSidchrome Lightning strikes?.....Grounding also eliminates man made noises.

Ronald Arjune: I am 50 years old and don't think I can climb to the roof to install an antenna for HDTV. My physical ability was depleted with my psychotropics for my mental illness. Anyhow I want to buy the antenna from Radio Shack and somehow get it on the roof. RS said it was $139. My parents have cable but I prefer to have free TV in my room when I go visit them. I will have to drill a hole in the brick wall to pass the coax into my room so I will have to buy a long bit--probably 3/8"?

gthree0239: @9:26 a helicopter powers up. Thanks for the video helped me with my install. Suck it cable and digital satellite. Thanks netflix

monkeyman1140: You should use a 4 or 8 bay bowtie antenna for best results. Those giant older antennas were designed for channel ranges 2-69, but nowadays the channel band is narrower, limited to 7-52, which means the antenna no longer has to be 15 feet long to get good reception.

imscuba: Un hook that ground ASAP. an RF ground needs to be seperate.. even if for reception.. get a small ground rod 4-5' drive it in ground.. take that green wire and solder it to the NEW ground rod.. never use the AC Mains ground for an antenna YIKES! ( Not to mention its all corroded.. probabaly isnt even electrically connected)

john sloan: Where did u get brackets ??

dhide14: You forgot to put the word "NOT" in your video title. It goes between the "How" and the "To" This is absolutely horrid
