Any idea what this thing is?

I copied this from somewhere else, it’s nothing I personally saw, but I’m curious.

It must be battery powered, whatever it is. Looks like it has a small motor. I tried searching “monopole axial-mode helical antenna” and “yagi antenna” with no luck.

Looks like a yagi disc antenna of some sort. Has a box to connect coaxial cable.


Probably for TV since one can a get pretty good number of stations free in a bigger city.

We can get 3 and sometimes 4 in our town free.

Or a WiFi booster…not for sure on that.


It looks like an old HBO antenna from many years ago.


I agree, it’s an older antenna of some sort. Newer ones of that style have a outer sheath that looks like a tube.
