Honored and humbled....

Posted 01-27-2011 at 02:53 AM by peonuser

Was reading the rss where where I saw there was an article about using the parallel port. I had just done one. Decided to click on it to get more info. Low and behold it was my own unfinished instructable. Surprise, Surprise, Surprise. in sort of a Gomer Pyle way.

    haha... I suppose that works... But really, people just need the proper antennas. A lot of the ones on the market are UHF only and marketed as an 'HD Antenna'. There is no such thing. Ideally you need an large outdoor roof antenna, but indoor units can offer reasonable signal if it's designed for reasonable signal strength in both the VHF and UHF bands.

    What's also amusing is the cost of electricity in broadcasting digital signals over higher UHF bands. It's significant enough to really cut into the station's profits and or ability to stay on air.

    I get about 50 channels with my simple antennas, but then I live in a metropolitan area. Anyway, maybe it will get people into adding their own hardware to their pc's. You do not have an Arduino to do all kinds of neat stuff.
