View Full Version : Free: old UHF/VHF TV antenna

Anyone want this before it goes to scrap?

I just pulled down my circa 1984 UHF/VHF TV antenna...any want for the radials? One might be able to piece together a homebrew antenna or two or three out of it.

If you still have it, how long are the elements and what diameter?

I'll measure it tonight...but from memory, I put one of the longest radials up to my Arrow J-Pole and the ol'TV radial was a couple inches shorter than the longest on the j-pole.

radials are not solid, they appear to be rolled up alum.

stay tuned.

And...sorry - totally spaced it. I'll measure and post up later (d'oh!)

No worries. If it is easier, a picture with tape measure for scale would be fine.

1 @ 55" (should have 2?)
2 @50"
and a handful of 13" and 6"
