Ok, understood. BUT, if ALL covering(s) were removed, would it then be UN shielded? Just curious & thank youThat cable is shielded and thus should NEVER pickup signal(s) of any kind. They are used to move the signal induced at the antenna to the detector circuit with minimal losses.
Guess you could do that, but that's a lot of work. OTA signals are best received outside in an unobstructed area - - above the roof line. Regardless, you need to support the free, unattached end and the overall length should ideally be a multiple of the wavelength. IMO, stick with an over-the-counter device.Ok, understood.

@learninmypcJobeard mentioned rabbit ears - you don't need a fancy antenna to pick up a signal,
... connect an antenna to a computer and get TV. It has to be decoded, especially now in this 'digital' tv age.
Either way, there's circuit called the "detector" to remove the RF, keep the "intelligent information" and pass that into the audio/video system.The difference is in how the carrier wave is modulated, or altered. With AM radio, the amplitude, or overall strength, of the signal is varied to incorporate the sound information. With FM, the frequency (the number of times each second that the current changes direction) of the carrier signal is varied.
