Fish house antenna

Recommended Posts

What do you guys use for an antenna? I cannot get any reception from the rabbit ears in my house! I assume that is because my sideing is all steel! Any recommendations? Thanks in advance!

This was kind of a crude set-up but I got a small collapsable antenna for a motorhome and tnen fastened it to my roof rake handle (4 sections) and then put it up with 1 5/8 inch u clamps to the fish house, and a coxial cable. When we were done we pulled it down and stored it in the bunk, out of sight out of mind you know. It worked great.

Rainman,
I bought an 7' antenna on HSOList for 8 bucks, attached it to a 2" diameter wood pole, and attached it to the fishhouse. Works good, gets all the channels and I put a splitter in the cable and attached it to an old car stereo.Good reception.

Never put a TV in house but have given it thaught. What I did do just for reception on cell phone (it was terrible in a metal fishouse) is put a wire on one of the screws as an antenna. I figured that way the whole house is an antenna any way it worked.

That sounds like it would work pretty good with a UHF frequency. Any time you try to get a good signal inside a metal house you have got some problems. You may want to try find an old UHF antenna and attach it to a moveable pipe outside your house. That way you can turn it go get optimum reception on your TV. Sometimes just the way it leans on your metal fishouse helps or hinders your reception. For mine I have an external FM antenna with plug in cable for radio rececption and old mesh type UHF antenna for TV and can always find something on.

    • Well Thank God for your wife. Shes a saint. 😇
    • 1 x 6 untreated red cedar bds cut to 15" for the weber has worked good for me. You can get lots of cooks on one board.  It's a lot cheaper than getting them at a grill store. The salmon looks good!
    • Yes, it's Food Grade cedar! 😋
    • Seeing the plank brings up a question.   Is that cedar that is sold as cooking planks any different than the stuff sold at the lumber yard for various purposes, like siding or roofing or docks?   
    • solo o... FALTA PESCAAA.. 
    • Last friday of lent and Coborns had a flash sale on fresh salmon so I put some on my overpriced pellet grill.   Good thing my wife talks me into sacrificing eating meat on Fridays of lent, you know, for Jesus.    
    • Got up early and put this small piece of brisket on my overpriced pellet smoker. I've never done one this small but my buddy who owns a meat market gave it to me at half price to get rid of it. It's  almost foiling time now at 10:30 am.
    • I’m in St. Cloud for Easter weekend, and decided to check out nearby Little Rock Creek. I had very low expectations. There’s a few easements, and a nice little wildlife management area, but the creek really isn’t very fishable. Water was pretty high, and banks were flooded. Overhanging brush would make fishing impossible in summer. Didn’t catch anything. Wasn’t disappointed though. Now I know not to bother again. Was still a nice morning for a walk in the country.
    • Haha. So, her boots kept falling off so much (several sizes too big), she eventually put them on the wrong feet. I tried telling her that, which is always a losing battle on my part. I thought maybe, that if they were on the wrong feet, they would stay on better. They did not.   This is the best time of year to take kids out trout fishing. No leaves on the trees, brush is still dead and matted down, so casting and walking are super easy.
