To 'Anonymous' above: probably best to keep each telescopic rod at 45 degrees, i.e. at 'half vertical, half horizontal' so to speak. This will allow for a variety of different polarisations used by RTE sites, or even lower powered independent sites. The broad sides of the rods should of course be facing towards Ireland, & it probably goes without saying a multi-element outdoor FM aerial (even without amplifier) will more likely bring you greater success. By the way, to the other users on this particular page, I can definitely confirm that Mount Leinster is transmitting SAORVIEW on UHF channels 23 & 26 only (NOT channel 39 as stated) & I understand the tech. standard to be DVB-T with MPEG4
