Ok so I found this cb aerial and it missing the top half but I want to ask i use this at home I have made a plug for it but will this antenna actully pickup anything at all ???

Also the other picture where I have the tv aerial thingy whatever there called would that work because it's fallen onto the roof and it's not up high so will any of these work ??

i can connect THE tv atrial to the top of my cb antenna with the copper pong thing

btw I have the arrival ontop of my window LOL it will help a small bIT but ain't picked anything up ;(

btw my friend also picked things up when he put it on his tv cable

i aint got £50 to spend on a ariela not even £20 what can I do to get signals from home ? What can I make a aerial out of
