Antenna spotting in Kenosha #5
 
1 Attachment(s)
Decided to go down to the lakefront in Kenosha just riding my bicycle around and did some antenna spotting. This may be one of the largest antennas I've seen in Kenosha. I'll bet you it's 20 feet long.

I'm sure it's a VHF antenna, can anybody ID it ?

Those are amateur radio antennas.
The bottom antenna is a 3 element yagi for 50 MHz (just below channel 2)
The middle antenna is for 144 MHz. (That’s above the aircraft band but below channel 7)
The top antenna is for 432 MHz. (That’s below channel 14)

So, none of those are actually TV antennas? I know it's hard to tell from a photo but do you think they are homemade?

Also I wonder if they have some sort of TV reception with those antennas?

They are narrowband antennas. They can receive TV signals but a real TV antenna would outperform them.
