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.
