Loft aerials | Installing
Saturday 10 November 2018 7:06AM

I changed to a high gain exterior antenna installed in my loft which I positioned using an inexpensive signal meter. This resulted in the antenna performing best at a strange angle. In addition, I installed a signal amplifier close to the antenna which restores the picture to my two receivers during low signal conditions. It is nice to have a maintenance free system rather than external hardware.

Ramsey (IoM) Freeview Light transmitter
Monday 27 May 2019 8:21AM

I am considering buying a new aerial to receive the Freeview transmission from Ramsey which is line of sight but about 3 miles away. There is one item I find confusing and that is your description of the aerial polarisation.

you state this:
"H/V: aerial position (horizontal or vertical)"

Which is it please or do I require a helical aerial?
