While I was at my parents, and making my cat annoyer, I also made the backplane to my Home made Digital TV antenna. This is just a reflector for the antenna to give it better gain.
It’s actually a little short, but I didn’t want to pay the $6 difference for the taller wire mesh.
It needs to all turn white or something, as it’s visually kinda dominating the room.
It needs to be tipped away from the wall a little bit to get the right angle to point towards Chicago to get the towers. It does reject Rockford and DeKalb stations quite strongly though, but alas, that is it’s design.
My cat, Brother, has a habit that drives my wife crazy. He scoops the food out of his feeder, onto the floor and eats it off the floor. Well, some of it.
So I made a cat food tray to put the feeder on top of. It will catch the food and allow us to pour it back into the feeder.
Not to bad for not taking any measurements. It’s a tad long, but not too bad.
And he likes it. It’s gonna frustrate him to no end, but he will eat off of it.
I saw this set up and thought it was clever. The city put concrete barricades into the back of the utility trucks for traction last week when it was so slippery.
I wandered over to the office tonight, in the snow and cold. I took a photo. What do you think?
