There is a bit of work going on with an old TV antenna design and now a 
note about it on the current Slashdot.

Some fellows have used modern antenna modeling to get an antenna design 
that would seem to cover the digital UHF channels about right and have 
some useful gain.  It is based on the Hoverman design but improved. The 
design is covered under GPL3 so all is revealed and we can play and 
tweak as we choose.

We could even manufacture if we want. With the upcoming cutover to 
digital TV this might have some consumer demand.


This kind of work is very much along the lines of AMRAD's interests and 
purpose.  I would like to have someone build one up, test it, tweak it 
and let us show it off at the AMRAD booths at upcoming hamfests. We 
might attract some antenna experimenter members.  Any takerw?
