Shortly after we moved here, we looked at getting cable tv. After about 30 seconds and realizing our tendency to watch tv (or not), we decided against it. Still hoping to get the history channel, John started looking at antennaes that we attach to the roof to optimize our channel viewing capacity. After about 10 minutes of that, John decided he’d make his own and thus he did. Here is a picture of his homemade television antennae made from cookie cooling racks from the dollar store, copper tubing, screws and a piece of wood. He used some old wiring that we had. Miraculously, it worked! We pick up 22 channels perfectly! Of course, since the Olympics, our tv viewing has been pretty minimal. Nonetheless, we could watch tv if we wanted!  It’s attached in our attic channeling in television love.
