This one is Jensen's Passive TV Antenna, the model 611.
Passive, they call it. There it sits very quietly, looking out the window, oblivious, lethargic, solemn, apathetic, pensive, dispassionate, bland, meek. Some people think it's really "deep", maybe heavily sedated, or perhaps a bit absent-minded. Others mistake the staid, placid vibe for serenity, pondering whether this Asian product is Confucian, maybe Zen Buddhist. No matter, it is guaranteed to retain its passive composure while you rant and scream at it about the awful reception.
Wasn't sure where to post this, but here seems just about as good a plac as the Terrestial Digital Thread. What gets me is the model # : PF7, which to me implies they went through at least 6 other versions before settling on this one. I guess the 4x6, 5x7, and the 8x10 etc...?
I'm not posting here to disrespect Terrestial Digital especially since Richard Schneider has posted here on DHC before, but just because it is unique.
At 6.5 dB of gain, I can't imagine a place in Canada where there wouldn't be better options.
I hope this is allowed but I couldnt resist...I love what is going in this forum and I stumbled over this...I love the one ontop of the HDset, and the ones blocking the roof plumbing vents! have a look, hope its no one here! haha
Haha, I thought I saw these pics on here before, but I guess not....
I wouldn't BUY one of these, but if I made one, I guess I might use one...
I'm sure the wife wouldn't mind the look of it, or the smell from blocking the plumbing vent
The guy obviously doesn’t have a clue what he’s doing… he’s connected the 75 ohm coax directly to a balanced antenna design causing an impedance mismatch. He should have used a balun here. Anyone who’s even thinking of making their own antenna ....... well you’re better off just buying a real antenna that’s precisely designed and not something made out of fire wood!
your right....he is actually selling these things!! I checked...people are eating this up. Jokes on us!haha...if you look he has plans for plywood camper too to go with your new antenna!!haha...too much
