i made contact with a local tv station and they have an employee of the guy that made this antenna working for them. what luck he said it is a horizontal dipole type antenna so you guys have that correct. he also told me that the tv stations may start to add vertical type transmission antennas because they do not have to limit the output power and my guess is more power to them and hence a larger audience. one local station has done this now if i understand him correctly may follow that pattern. if so this type of antenna may work real good for home made units. he said this type works good for both types of signals but better for vertical. he told me the horizontal signals get blocked by there towers and that the signal for some reason gets turned to the vertical.

and he is going to try to see about finding me one or getting me the diagram to make one for myself to test next summer. thanks
