In response to futrader8 (Who I assume lives in Marietta) I have posted a pic of my 8 bow homemade antenna.

I built an 8 bay whisker bowtie antenna with basic coat hangers using the M-4 antenna design.

The bowtie has 9 inch spacing with 5.25 spacing between each other. I also swinged the whiskers approximately 2 inches forward and added chicken wire as a reflector 20 feet above ground level (Basically mounted it on my deck which is 20 feet above).

I also added into the mix a RadioShack Model: 15-369 In-Line TV Antenna Signal Amplifier.

As I stated before I am getting over 80+ channels. Granted I really only DVR and watch about 10 but in combo with my TiVo it still makes a lot of TV to watch.

Nice work. I'm impressed that you even get 16 and 32 way up in Canton.
