Awsome. It was just a shot in the dark. This thing works!
This one out performs anything that I've ever tried.
I get all my regular OTA digital and analog channels. No rotor required.
analog: 5,6,9,11,13,19,25,28,31,41,47 [11 channels that's all I ever could get Cdn]
digital: 2.x,4.1,5.1,7.1,9.1,11.1,12.x,15.1,17.1,23.1,24.1,26.x,29.1, 36.1,44.1,49.1,51.x,54.x,66.x [30 digital channels]
The front side is facing Toronto [30deg] 52miles, the back face Erie [210deg] 57 miles, Buffalo [86deg] 40 miles to east the side, Hamilton [340deg] 22miles on the other side.
It must be mounted at the tip of the mast and it can't seem to be used with any reflectors or any deflectors. It can not be stacked or ganged. Don't know why? But it outperforms anything I've ever tried.
I'm getting all the way through the tvfool list down to -10NM
I'm hoping someone else can build one of these to see if it works in other reception areas.
This antenna either has an extremely wide beam width, or it has multiple lobes to be able to cover all these broadcast sources with one single aim.
What's in a name? "Stealth Hawk Antenna":
Stealth: At 35ft up on the tip of the mast it is barely even noticable.
Hawk: It looks like a faint siloette of a hawk sitting up on top of the mast.
Antenna: It's a fully functional, stable UHF/VHF Bi-directional antenna.
There are so many builds and trials posted in this thread. Development and improvements are ongoing thanks to all of the contributors of these forums. I have selected some favorites that I would recommend: http://www.digitalhome.ca/forum/show...&postcount=304
