Thanks Tripelo!

So it is a TV antenna. Back in the days before UHF? It's very cool looking antenna. Unfortunately, It looks as if it hasn't functioned in years.

I'm still seeking some guidance on my antenna hack. I am on a pause for now. Any new Ideas ? Calaveras thought to maybe to add elements.
