This DIY fractal-based HDTV antenna is cheap, easy to craft, and can be stuck unobtrusively on your window for better signal gains.
Courtesy of HTPC-DIY, this simple build uses aluminum foil, a printed fractal pattern, clear plastic, and some basic hardware to create a lightweight and transparent antenna you can affix to a window without significantly blocking light from entering the window. Hit up the link below for the full build details as well as designs for other DIY antennas.
