Make a homemade TVantenna out of empty beer cans. This is a very popular method that many use. The method consists in the following. Prepare the shielded cable is long enough to stretch from the TV to the balcony or window.
Take two empty beer cans. Banks should be dry inside. The main difficulty of this way to make a homemade TV antenna is to the inconvenience of fastening the cans. Solder them to the cable will fail. The screws in them are bad, so it is best to resort to less technical method of fixing.
Make the body of the antenna to make it easy to fix it. To do this you need an ordinary stick of medium length with a cross on the end, which you secure banks. So, to move the antenna, do in the banks in the two holes located next to each other.
Strip approximately 15-20 inches of insulation from the cable. Copper shielding coil in a single thick wire. With main cord remove about 5 inches of insulation. Wire-screening thread in the hole in one Bank, the second wire pass hole to the other Bank. Wrap them tight to not fall out. For greater reliability of fastening can solder. On the other side of the wire solder the connector to make it easy to connect the antenna to the TV.
Fasten the antenna on the balcony or on the reverse side of the window so that the reception quality of the signal was the best. In fact, the antenna can be made of any metal products, even from wire. Because the antenna can be (remember high-school physics) any open oscillating circuit. The more wire length and the width of its cross section, the better and better the signal reception. If you have a long thick wire, then you can use it as an antenna.
