The $4.2 million satellite TV antenna sold at auction on Wednesday for $2.5 million was the biggest in the auction and was a new record.
It was also the highest price for a satellite TV cable set up.
It had been on display in New York for the past few days, and was on the second floor of a warehouse in Brooklyn.
“It’s the most exciting auction in the history of auction house,” said Bob DeBakey, a veteran auctioneer who runs the auction house.
“We’ve got to be careful with these deals because they’re really, really exciting.”
DeBakes had estimated that the antenna would sell for about $1.7 million.
It has a built-in antenna and a TV tuner.
The antenna was built by Hovis Communications in North Carolina and is about 13 feet long and 1.5 feet wide, according to its owner, Michael Hoviss.
The auction house estimated that this is the largest antenna in its history.
The television tuner is an older model, about 15 feet long, and is sold separately.
DeBaks had hoped to sell the antenna to the highest bidder, but it wasn’t immediately clear if that bidder was the one who bought it.
DeMolay’s auction house, which also is auctioning off the television antenna, did not return a call seeking comment.
It is the first time a satellite antenna has sold at a high price.
DeDakis auction house has been auctioning its own antennas since 2008.
The satellite antenna is in a storage shed at the company’s Brooklyn warehouse, which is owned by a New York-based real estate company called the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Trust.
The firm, which has auctions in New Jersey, Virginia, Texas, Illinois and Arizona, was founded in the late 1970s by a pair of former Manhattan real estate developers.
They were partners in the New York City office of an Atlanta real estate investment firm, and they became billionaires in their own right.
The antennas were built by DeMoliays company, Mimo Communications, which was founded by Michael Hovell, who also owned a satellite radio company.
The company, which specializes in the production of commercial satellite radio antennas, was one of the first in the world to develop and build a TV antenna.
The Hovislawsons owned a cable company, Hovision Communications, and had been building cable systems in the U.S. for several years.
DeDeBaks said that this antenna was part of a larger collection of satellite antennas, which includes several antennas from DeMolt’s own company, DeMoss Communications, the company that manufactured and sold satellites in the early 1980s.
He said the collection also included several of DeMolyns own antennas, and that he and his wife own another satellite TV set.
DeBlakey said the auction is the second time that the satellite TV industry has seen a record auction.
Last year, a television antenna was sold at an auction for $5.8 million.
That was the highest auction price for any satellite television antenna in the United States, DeBakers auction house said.
The sales of satellite TV antennas in the past five years are “the biggest ever,” DeBakys auction house president, Richard A. Dreyfus, said in a statement.
“Our goal is to have a record of sales and keep the market going for years to come.”
The auction will close on Sunday, with the highest bid expected to be the highest.
