TV homemade rabbit ears
I'm switching cable providers and will be without cable for about 2 weeks.
Both my TV and VCR have only coax type qntenna type connectors.
I would like to fabricate a homemade el-cheapo type rabbit ears so I can get local broadcast without having to buy retail rabbit ears.
Can anyone tell me how to easily build a basic set of rabbit ears that will work with my coax type of antenna input.

What I found on google is greatly above my knowledge and understanding of antenna technology. I'm hoping someone can simplify this for me and give me directions for a basic basic rabbit ear antenna so I can get even marginal reception for a while.

I wired togeter an antenna, didn't really understand what I was making . It works pretty good at night but during the day outside traffic passing by gives me a lot of interference on a couple of the channels.
