Installing an OTA (Over the Air) Antenna

A couple weeks ago week, we gave an overview of the various types of OTA antennas and promised an installation of some of these antennas.

The iPhone landed face down as it tumbled down the steps and the result can be seen below. It still worked, but certain areas of the screen were about useless to try and view.
