King Jack antenna installation

I just replaced the crummy Jensen Omni-directional TV antenna that couldn't pick up TV signals from any direction with a King Jack antenna today. Installation so far has taken me about 4 hours. I work slow. Tomorrow I'll Dicor the antenna to the roof. I just set it on the roof with a couple of screws so I could test to ensure it worked.
Test results: We're about 70 miles from the Tucson TV stations. Just sitting in front of my house I got zero stations with the Jensen. With the King Jack I can receive 13 stations. Most of the stations are very clear with a few showing a weak signal now and again. I'm quite impressed.
Some photos of the installation.
