My build of the Single Bay Gray Hoverman UHF TV Antenna (SBGH) for nearby to fringe Over-The-Air (OTA) terrestrial reception range of 0 to 100 km. There are two variants of the SBGH. The one with 6-Pair Collinear Rod Reflectors and in my case here, the one with the Split-Screen Reflector.
The antenna was originally created by Doyt R. Hoverman, who also did the early work on the Hoverman antenna.
He was granted US patents in 1959 and 1964, which expired in 1979 and 1984 respectively.
In early 2008 the DIY Antenna community started toying with the possibility of experimenting with the old Hoverman antenna design. Aided by computer antenna modeling software and encouragement from fellow antenna enthusiasts, an ad hoc research and development team came together.
The original Hoverman design was reconfigured in many ways resulting in a design that has achieved an extraordinary leap in UHF Television Antenna reception performance that rivals or beat most of today's commercially available UHF Television antennas. The Gray Hoverman Antenna was born.

My wooden framed version, based on the DigitalHome design. With all the material at hand, it took me a good 3 hours to complete.
Will be posting some test results when I could find the time, cheers.
