    I need to build a basic TV antenna, "heavy duty" to withstand the weight of
    large birds landing on the elements. Are there any sites which give design
    specifications for TV antennae?

    Thank you.

  3. Build it? OK, if that is your thing and you don't put a price on your
    labor. But you might be better off buying one designed for cable-tv
    head end use.

    I do not know if this will help but a good book on Antenna design is
    Antennas by Kraus Published by McGraw Hill.
    I t should be available in the library. The book covers all antenna design
    in detail.

    Try getting a copy of the ARRL antenna handbook. Google it or search for one
    on eBay.
