Description:

This website, provided by Professor Rick Matthews of Wake Forest University, contains instructions on how to build an inexpensive but effective TV antenna. The site includes formulas for converting channel number to frequency, and frequency to wavelength (that is, wavelength in "twin-lead," the standard antenna lead wire). A diagram shows that the distance across antenna is half wavelength.
