Antenna setup guide
Please note that this is not intended to serve as a thorough technical assessment
of your individual antenna requirements and for detailed advice and installation
assistance it is recommended that you engage an antenna installer. Reception of
television signals can be affected by a number of factors outside of using an appropriate
antenna these include damaged equipment or wiring, physical obstructions, strength
of the signal and local sources of signal interference.
The information below can be used to assess the suitability of your antenna for
the current range of digital services available from your selected transmitter.
The recommendation, below, takes into account the planned broadcasting frequencies
of the current digital services and the predicted level of coverage at you location
in order to determine the combination of antenna type, potential need for “boosting”
and general installation height in order to maximise your chances of achieving adequate
reception of the available digital signal.
Please Note: A generic image of an antenna is used below to illustrate what a typical
antenna, of the type recommended, will look like. It is acknowledged that antenna
come in a wide variety of styles and your antenna may differ slightly or radically
from that which is shown below but may be perfectly acceptable for the digital channels
in your area.
