    So funny…I remember going through that…the good ole days.. now you have to pay for everything, even for TV’s not hooked up to satellite with those stupid digital boxes that get a few infomercial channels…sometimes get a channel you can watch some old program, if the wind is blowing right…I miss getting to just put up those old antennas…

    I still remember watching Batman, Jonny Quest, Space Ghost … Star Trek … on a black and white with rabbit ears… snow… ghost images…
    No … don’t miss it.

    And how you miss those days of analog TV when you could
    pick up stations from other cities! Who really needed cable or satellite?

    LOL! I remember being the kid doing this!!! Dad on the roof with the antenna, Mom in the living room with the TV, and me passing messages between.

    …after that, we got a “Tenna Rotor.” :-)

    I still remembering the time I decided to emulate my dad on what he did during the Korean war. made a antenna out of wire. and using the backs of my bookcases to hold it. in his defense he was in radio communications back then. and the antenna he made was easily ten feet by ten feet.

    Back when we had one of those all of the transmitters were in Chicago, so we never had to adjust.

    Out dated, since they don’t work any more as the stations have switched over to digital.

    Been there, done that…except the antenna wasn’t on the roof…it was right outside the living room window. When I changed channels, I opened the window and rotated the antenna…such good ole days.

    I use an antenna now. The adjustments have to be precise to catch the stations 40 miles away. But it’s free! When it’s free you don’t feel compelled to watch. Plus I don’t get many stations anyway.

    Years ago I know an old man that turned his roof mount antenna by hand from the living room. The pipe went right though the room and was sitting on a metal plate behind the TV. I would worry about it getting hit by lightening but it never did.
