They are good value but have been this price for months. they are cheap because unlike what it says on the box there is no f connector included. Fine if you have some. Keep in mind it won't be good for low signal areas.

Beware that these aren't guaranteed to work (check out the reviews) plus the reviews say that it doesn't come with the important F connector where it stages that it does.
We bought a more expensive one from Argos, with fittings, a couple of weeks back and couldn't get squat. Tried the very cold aerial on the roof and the Freeview TV now gets loads of channels. Needless to say Argos got theirs back.
Just a heads-up!

What does it mean by saying it amplifies up to ANY dB. Surely that can't be correct?

They're using an incorrect description, F connectors are for Satellite or Cable, they're the ones that screw onto the set top box and are screwed or crimped onto the cable. Aerials use the basic co-ax plug that has been used for years. The really annoying thing is that the big stores will charge a couple of quid for a connector that can be bought for 10p elsewhere

Wrong, many new TV aerials have " f " connectors to connect to the cable at the aerial end.

F connectors are a far superior connectors for UHF and have been used for decades on pro aerial installs. I wouldn't use anything else.

You are right to ask. It's nonsense. Unless the specification is given (they key points being forward gain and aerial group) you really don't know what you are buying and should steer clear at any price:

The time you take sticking this on the roof will far outweigh the few quid you may save over an aerial with a known spec, and if this one doesn't work you'll be up on the roof again!
#15
It was pretty low gain, for good signal areas. It's a very small aerial but does have a relatively quite large reflector

Not to mention you may do a "Rod Hull".

If ever i need an aerial,someone else is supplying and fitting it as it aint worth the risk for a few bob,scrambling about on a roof.
