Cutting corners with Tv Aerials

Here is a classic example of how engineers cut corners when fitting TV Aerials.

As you can see from this video the bottom tv aerial is new and has been clamped to an existing old rusty mast, the weight and condition of the pole with a bit of bad weather has caused the pole to snap.

In this situation the engineer should have at least informed the customer of what condition it was in, but probably fitted and charged as a new installation.

Here is the completed job.

Digital TV Aerial installation Myths

If you are in need of some advice on Digital TV Aerial installation then look no further.

Many people ask can we have a digital TV aerial and not analogue one, well there is no difference between an old type and a new type. All tv aerials now are classed as wideband aerials meaning they can pick up the full spectrum of signals from all transmitters, and when the broadcasters change frequency it is still capable of working.

Another one we are coming across is HD tv aerials again no such thing, if you have enough signal arriving at your Television or Set Top Box if it’s capable of receiving HD and the signal then all will be good.

Bigger aerial better signal is another myth you need 45 – 70db anything more than that or anything less your picture could break up. Some companies will up sell the aerial telling you will need this or that just be wary.
