Just finished installing my new J-pole antenna on the roof of my house and now I can pick up KTOL Tower, ground and planes clearly.Thanks to Michael at KB9VBR J-pole Antennas for building the antenna, Thanks to Jason, Sean, and Dave for answering all my questions about getting an antenna and getting a feed going, even if they maybe they thought some of the questions were stupid. Hope to be online shortly with KTOL Tower.

10 Miles from KTOL. I was hoping to pickup KDTW but to far away 40 miles. Maybe a Yogibeam antenna one of these days. Just afraid if I get a Yogibeam I will still not pickup KDTW.

Hi there Darrel,

Did you build the antenna by yourself or you bought it? And another question, are there any hills/mountains from your antenna and KTOL?

Thanks.
