MikeP: tHE wire dipole has a use in many radio/tv applications,as i have said,i have had a locked picture at ground level from hannington where other aerials failed,the shape isnt critical,as long it resembles the fold ed dipole,copper is very efficent in pickup,its worth a try.The signal indication on other aerials varied from 5 to 15,the copper provided a locked picture and sound.It provides a solution where a preamp could be overloaded.A aluminium dipole is just another piece of metal,just like the copper wire,the advantage it has a covering and careful insulation where the coax connects would give it a good lifetime,you are trying to do me down,i am on here to help provide solutions.

Hardy:sorry,it wasn't a case of good luck,aluminum has a efficency of 45%,copper has over 90%,it picked up and provided a locked picture from hannington at 40miles on a set top aerial, whereas other aerials did not ,if u dont like the solutions then don't attack them, i'm on here to provide solutions that don't cost too much money,n.........................

Hardy: It picked hannington at 40miles with a locked picture,the other aerials couldnt,........I was surprised,a set top aerial producing a picture when the others at 30ft couldnt..n

so how come?Dont give the luck nonsence,the copper dipole due to its effincey picked up enough signal at ground level,..you believe what you want to,the facts speak for themself,,apolgies for spelling.n................

Steve: ,i'm not sure if the sound is delayed but some tvs in their menu,can adjust any time delay or possibly this feature has been omitted,i notice from oxford there is difference between fm and freeview radio,it depends on how the station gets its incoming signal,in previous times,channels 70-81 were used,but these days,its fibre optics,possibly satellite,possibly a fault on daisy chained transmitters if the area has a lot of relays,,i notice the bbc gets touchy on how the network is fed if enquiries are made,possibly the ways things are these day,sometimes i believe to stop bad language,n..................

Hardy: i have had self training for a long period,i advise people on solutions which they may take up at their entire risk,no responsibility taken or implied,the solutions are what i have tried,and found to have worked,what more can i say.perhaps it would be easier just to recommend freesat.i wonder why i bother sometimes........................

To all,i have found if freezing occurs,switch box on/off,it seems to work on humax,digital stuff can be a right pain sometimes,n............................

Hi Aanton.perhaps freesat would be a better option,its a shame uhf tv is affected,i honestly think the phone networks should have been pushed to a higher frequency but money talks,thats the sickness of todays life
