Tony: Like Most businesses there are other overheads, van insurance, public liability insurance, road tax, van servicing, stock, your own wages, so you have to cover overheads and you are allowed to make a profit it isn't against the law. I have been fitting aerials over 25 years and it maby not fully skilled there is a skill to it. I have seen how sparks like to fit aerials they are the worst followed by members of the public. There is a greater risk doing aerials than being a gas fitter working off ladders is dangerous and people won't pay if scaffold is needed.
I work in the northwest that has some of the cheapest aerial fitters in England I wish I could charg £100 for a aerial. By the way what do you do how would you like someone to say you arnt worth what you earn and you should be paid less.

H J Hill: There is no problem With winter hill the most likely problem is with either your tv or your aerial I have had no complaints in the ormskirk area with any multiplexes but if you are happy to think it is the transmitter that's fine but it probably won't get fixed but you will be happy how old is your aerial by the way.

H J Hill: The majority of people complaining about com 7 will have an aerial fault or an old banded aerial to cd these will pick up com 7 but not as good as a wideband aerial. Com 7 is also reduced in power compared to other multiplexes, I normally expect about 60 to 65 dbuv of signal on all multiplexes except com 7 with this I expect about 50 to 55 dbuv still more than enough to work I have yet to have a problem. Com 7 isn't broadcast totally omni directional some areas do have black spots. What I seem to see is people just blaming the transmitter but they refuse to have there aerial checked, I spent hundreds of pounds on aerial meter so I can check signal strength and signal quality. It's been said that people all over the area have problems but people all over the North west have aerial problems as well so instead of complaining spend a small amount of money have your aerial checked just for peace of mind.

anthony: Isn't it funny I work all over Liverpool and west Lancashire and have no problems with com 7 other than the banks area and some parts of southport. Some areas just don't receive com 7 but most get it great. Like to day I done a job Just an rx12 aerial going into a 4 way splitter not amplifier and still got 56dbuv of signal. That is great for receiving com 7 all the people posting there is a problem with winter hill might just be in an area that just carnt receive the signal the others are just too cheap to pay someone to check the signal with a proper meter to see if they do have a problem, like the post from Liverpool 16 the other day I done a aerial not far from him in Liverpool 12 if a worst signal area and got 65 dbuv of a mzr20 aerial. The North west is the cheapest area for tv aerials in England so instead of putting up with picture break up just call someone in the worst it will be is a call out and to be told sorry I carnt get you any signal

Brian I have seen the radiation pattern for winter hill, I'm in ormskirk and according to the pattern this is coloured black I think this means poor or no signal but I get great signal.

Abbey: Does your slx amplifier have its own power supply or does it get its power from your sky box, if the latter the io links don't output enough power for the magic eyes to work. You need an io link that you can connect a power supply to.
