I used a normal Channel 7-11 television antenna mounted on a tripod. My apartment was on the 10th floor of a huge apartment block in Täby, north of Stockholm. My balcony faced south, making satellite observations easy. The antenna can be seen below while tracking Skylab. I had to move the antenna three to four times during pass to follow the spacecraft signal across the sky. The beamwidth was that broad.
