Hey bobs:

You and tripelo are definitely "The History Detectives of TV Antennas" on this forum! Fascinating!

You guys should write a nice table top book on the history of American TV Antennas. If you cannot find a publisher, self publish on Amazon. I'll be the first to preorder!

Ha! Well done Tripelo!

This is kind of fun actually, that is one interesting looking antenna.

Did anybody ever have any experience with one of these antennas? If so, how did they work or was it just a gimmick?
