These are good - hot

Definitely hot ....

I'm actually in Screwfix buying mine now. Hot!

rubbish if u in a weak signal area

flopstocks

Professional, high gain digital aerial....

What features qualify this item as "professional"?
Would it provide better reception than the larger Vision log periodic (forget the full model number)? The Vision is struggling in my old dear's marginal signal area. Thanks..

Looks more like a wide band aerial rather than high gain.

professional and screwfix.....together in the same sentence...............no way

I agree, compared to the new technologies incorporating IC boards, these grandad wire frames on the roof messing about jobbies are moronic. But some are elderly and set in their ways or believe what their dad or gran tells them, each to their own. I have tried the best of both worlds and there is no comparison.

It's not an exact science. I've tried similar systems and also numerous external aerials and the most consistent results are with a traditional yagi

It's not an exact science. I've tried many types and most consistent results are with a traditional grouped yagi or log 36.

That is true, but most amplified IC aerials are also rubbish, you need the few good ones. There is no one fix-all solution, it depends on the exact problem. Some are in bad signal areas. Some are in good areas but are blocked by a hill or buildings. Others are in big cities or in blocks of apartments. Some have multiple signals in various directions each with different strength signals for different channel groups. For each situation a different best option exists which has to be optimised to max effect. If in a really bad signal area then the best option is beyond traditional or new aerials, best to get really high quality aerial cables which matters greatly and create wire-frames of multiple cube structures in a large attic, the shape, no. of multiples, direction and inclination needs a bit of know-how and needs final tweaking with a signal-metre. Inline amplifiers help further. There is no single solution if you are in bad luck.

Thanks simplez, looks a really good product

anybody buying a new aerial
i think it would be advisable to use CT100 cable to run from the aerial to wherever.

I believe CT100 is just a better standard of cable and i think you loose less signal over its length than the cheaper stuff usually supplied.
