If you already have an aerial on your property and it has seen better days, it's likely that the mounting is usable and we would just need to change the aerial and sometimes the pole, you may also find the down cable needs replacing.
Loft mounted aerials are only recommended for strong signal areas, or where the addition of an amplifier will result in suitable signal strength, things such as the roof tiles, insulation and plumbing will degrade the signal.
Indoor aerials are generally not suitable for digital television reception; however in areas of strong signal strength it is often possible to receive some transmissions.
The best position for a TV aerial is mounted outdoors, as high from the ground as possible, pointing directly at the transmitter. The signal can be blocked by hills and tall buildings. It should be positioned away from any other aerials.
The standard type of TV aerial is known as the Yagi aerial. It is mounted on a pole, and consists of a rod with a reflector at the back and many protruding elements at the front. The connecting cable connects to the element nearest the reflector, known as the driver.
The Yagi aerials are directional and so pick up signals best from a transmitter that the rod points towards. The more elements the aerial has, the better it picks up a signal and becomes more directional.
Wideband High Gain Aerials
These aerials are designed for poor digital reception areas, and have two reflectors. For maximum signal strength, some digital high gain aerials have up to 100 elements.
Log Periodic Aerials
With a flat gain response over the entire UHF range these aerials are ideal in good for good signal strength areas and are supplied with pre-fitted â€˜Fâ€™ type cable connections. Suitable for digital TV reception including Freeview, YouView, BT Vision, Top-Up TV in the UK.
The signal from the aerial can feed a single room or multiple rooms with a splitter; a distribution amplifier is sometimes required depending on the signal strength received.
