    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.

    Thanks

    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.

    Thanks

    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.
