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?

will measure tonight
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.

Glad you got that....
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"
