Hi Bryn,

Mark fletcher's comments are pretty much on the money & there are quite a few group a transmitters in the valleys ! (3 within 5 miles from my front door) I cant think of a situation where this aerial would be the best choice. A traditional aerial would be a better choice. This does not mean it wont work in some situations, but it does mean you can do better for less money.

Hi Dave,

Sorry for the delay answering, I have customers in both Pandy close & Lakeside gardens who got full Wenvoe service, However there are also reports (thankfully not my customers !) who have reported that trefechan mast has knocked out some of their channels. I cant say for sure but there would appear to be a good chance of reception but it may not be straight forward.

Hi David,

I think you made the right choice mate, Ive since visited a customer who had every channel from wenvoe perfect for years, then when switchover came they stated getting problems on the channels that clash with trefechan. Ive had to recommend a freesat box as changing aerials etc didn't help.

If you havent bought a box yet, the echostar box is down to £199 at merthyr's blockbuster & £179.99 at amazon.com.

E Reid:

You must go for a new lnb & second cable, splitting the cable will damage the equipment.

Hi mumzey, Yes if you have freesat you can either fit a Triax trilink kit to watch & control the same channel from a second location or you can fit a extra freesat box (they start around £30 in argos) & quad lnb & you can watch a different channel at the same time in the second room which is ideal if you dont want to watch the football or kids progs that others in your house may be watching.
