I promised an update on my new Jack antenna after I got it installed.
It was very easy to install - I did it myself! Just take out the two pins holding the old batwings, and reinsert them after swapping for the Jack. I put a little piece of blue foam on the base to keep the antenna from bouncing on the roof while I am going down the road.
I'm in Apache Junction, and all the stations seem to be on South Mountain on the other side of Phoenix. So I aimed the antenna (the flat side) in that direction.
I got 71 channels!!! I should have scanned with the old batwing, so I could compare, but I am pretty impressed.

Another project - I found this small bookcase at Walmart for $28.
I split it in two - putting the top part under one side of my "all purpose table."
And the other half upside down under the other side.
The sliding drawer under the desk is also new. I got the drawer at The Container Store, and the strip that it slides on at Home Depot. It's tight enough that I don't need a lock on it when I'm traveling.
When I took the dinette out in 2007, it left an unsightly area under the new table. When Molly was alive, I would open the bay door so she could look out. But she's been gone for 2 years now and it's time I closed up the opening to the outside bay.
I used pieces of material and vinyl from the dinette cushions. It's not perfect, but certainly better.
That's it for now - Good Night!
