Choosing the Right TV Aerial

Selecting the proper exterior aerial is tougher than you think, with there being far more to consider than just the price tag. As you are picking your model, you have to contemplate everything, including the terrain of your current location and your house’s proximity to a transmitter.

Bigger Really is Better

Speaking in general terms, a bigger aerial will supply greater gain. This means that if you live a fair distance from any transmitters, then it’s likely that you’ll require something massive. Of course, this all depends on the type.

What Size TV Aerial Should You Get?

A simple and efficient method of deciding what aerial size you need is to examine your neighbourhood to see what everyone else is using.

See what direction the aerials are pointing in, because if they are all facing the same way, chances are that you reside in a locale that gets a suitable signal. If they are pointing in multiple directions, it’s possible that you might have to utilise an amplifier to overcome reception problems.

VHF or UHF or Both?

The majority of designs receive either VHF or UHF signals, or both. A typical misconception however is that every digital channel belongs to the UHF bandwidth, which just isn’t the case.

This band does have most of the high definition and digital signals, but some do exist on the VHF one too. Cross-reference the frequency bands of those channels you wish to watch with those bands that are supported by your mechanism.
