It works when laid flat.It works with wall paint all over it. It works behind pictures. I’m beginning to wonder if anything is going to stop this mighty little antenna.
When I thought of the kind of destructive forces you’d find around your average home, one leaped to mind. You can find it in a lot of homes and it’s been blamed for a lot of chaos over the years. I’m not talking about electricity, weather, or some other source… I’m talking about your kids.
I knew the HD-BLADE was cat-proof. Armed with that, I gave the HD-BLADE to my favorite four-year-old to play with and asked her to paint a picture. I actually thought this would be a good test, because non-toxic kids’ paints use chromium, cobalt, and other non-toxic metals for coloring. Metals deflect antenna signals. I knew this particular young girl loves lions, so I had a feeling I would get a lot of yellow and orange — full of chromium.
First the good news The HD-BLADE is actually kid-paint-proof. The paint really didn’t stick to it at all and while the original painting was beautiful, about half the paint flaked off before I could even test the antenna. Dry erase marker also wiped right off, and crayon came off with a little goo-gone. So, if your little one paints you a picture without your permission, you’re probably safe.
Still, by the time I tested the HD-BLADE, it still had about 33% paint coverage. So, this was going to be a good test.
In fact, the HD-BLADE pulled in the same 55 channels I got after I painted it with wall paint. So, I have to say, kids’ paint had zero effect! Great news if you plan on putting something that looks like a drawing board up in your kids’ rooms!
At this point I’m getting a little frustrated. I’m sure something will stop this little antenna but I just don’t know what.
