I'll look for a box and let you know if I find one, if you decide to get one from Amazon then you can let me know.

But it's "potable", right?

TV antennas

As many have stated basically any piece of iron or preferably copper or aluminum that you stick up in the air will get you a signal.

The secret is getting it up high, especially for Uhf. I have always used my trailer tongue or the hitch socket on the MH to mount a suitable socket for the mast. Welded on or U bolts or small exhaust clamps work well) You don't need a lot of elevation but lots is always better. A good ground really works especially if you keep it damp, use something ( a really big nail or tent peg) non-ferrous or galvanised and connect the other end to the metal part of the co-ax cable. Alligator clip ETC. I never thought of it but I bet the painters pole would be ideal.

Yesterday when I was in Walmart I saw a small Yaggii for around sixty bucks that looked like it was designed by someone who knew their AE's. It was directional but in town that doesn't matter and in the boonies you need all the gain you can get!
