Project: Extending the TV Antenna Mast
Well, as I spoke of in the “Giving the old KIT a TV antenna
” post, back in 2008, I installed a Winegard Dipole Antenna on the side of my camper for my TV installation.
It has served me well, but has always had problems with DTV signals if the camper was offloaded and someone moved into the site next to me because the neighboring rig would partially block the antenna because of it’s limited height.
So, when I started losing TV signals again, I finally spent the $3 and bought the extra PVC pipe pieces I needed and made a removable extension piece to help raise the antenna up enough that it would cleanly clear neighboring RVs.
With the help of the AntennaWeb App
for Android that I have on my HTC Thunderbolt, I repositioned my antenna for maximum signal strength and now my shows no longer stutter when I watch them
