Any simple way of holding aerial in place?

Simple thing is that I get the most channels and best signal opening my window and balancing the aerial on it, this is generally fine for the tv but when I connect the same aerial to the pc it needs to be at a slightly more to right angle but then wont balance.

So I need a way to hold it in place. I dont think blu tack is strong enough.

Is there a drain downpipe or similar reachable outside your window. If so you should be able to get some sort of fitting like Raptor has shown to attach the aerial to.

If not you can get wall mountings but these are better put up from outside so depends how far up your bedroom is. :)

My bedrooms on the ground but I cant really attach anything to the walls as the place doesnt belong to me as its uni accomodation right in the centre of campus and you get security guards going about regularly and drunks as im right next to the union bar and also the canteen.

I do have an outdoor aerial with brackets, and also a drainpipe but the drainpipe is to the left and I only get a signal pointing right lol.

No communal aerial ?? Unusual for accommodation of that type.

What about those grip thingies that you can get from poundland. They work like a vice .
I'll see if I can find a pic if you don't know what I mean.



update



Can't find a pic but I think they are called spring clamps or something like that.
They also do normal heavy duty plastic clamps which would probably do the job.

Nope as the outdoor aeials mine and it isnt connected to the wall either lol

Anyway problem mostly sorted, I got all the channels I want in a good signal apart from now losing BBC3 and 4 completly for some reason when before they were strong signals.

i'm serious ...
"... all you need is

(1) a Wire Coat Hanger (surely everyone must have at least one, maybe its hiding somewhere have a look about)

(2) a TV Extension Lead (everyone will have at least one proberly from an old vhs machine)

and its simple what you do next, Plug the wire into the Freeview box and the other end the Wire-Coat-Hanger slots into and once you move the coat-hanger about you will get a siginal and wala job done "

lol.
