Aerials for Freeview
There are two types of TV Aerial installations and two types of Radio Aerial installations that we can provide. All of our installations use CAI/Digital UK Benchmarked/Approved Cables and Aerials, so you can be assured that the equipment supplied has passed rigorous performance tests. We have listed the most common installations below, but if you do not see what you require please contact us. All of these installations can be tailored to your needs, for example should you be looking at more than one point in your home we can accommodate.
A standard installation would be provided where television signals are strong and a high-gain aerial is not required. The aerial would be fitted to a chimney or onto fascia or wall brackets. New low loss double screened cable would be run to the required location.
A High-Gain installation would be provided in the case where television signals are weak or where there is a need to position the aerial above any obstructions i.e. trees, buildings etc. This type of installation may also require mast head amplification depending on the strength of the signals. Aerial fixings are subject to the height of the mast used and should a mast head amplifier be needed then a power supply unit would be required in addition.
Interference and WiFi problems
If you have been experiencing reception problems it may be due to conflicts from another transmitter or 4G/5G mobile phone signals and your aerial may need to be re-aligned to another transmitter or have a filter fitted. Having problems with WiFi for your smart tv? Maybe you need a WiFi extender! Give us a ring for advice.
FM Radio Installation
There are two types of FM Radio Aerials we use. Firstly, the Omni Directional Aerial which is generally used when signals are strong and French Radio is not a problem. Secondly, the 3 Element Directional Aerial which in the main is used where signals are weaker and a reduction in French Radio signals is required.
DAB Radio Installation
The main type of aerial we use for Digital Audio Broadcasting is a 5 Element Directional Aerial as DAB signals are generally weaker.
