I've been looking for an aerial since buying the raspberry pi TV hat, which was featured on here last week.

This is the cheapest i could find with the aerial cable, that also works indoors (my loft).

OK - except for the fact that there is no such thing as a "digital aerial". The reception of a TV signal or carrier (whether a Freeview multiplex or pre-freeview analogue TV) does not depend on a special or different type of aerial .
Unfortunately the aerial marketing folks won the misinformation war with this nomenclature so Joe Public believes that a special type of aerial is needed. cableguys.co.uk/dis…hs/

Interesting, i will give it a try, if not i will have to find a place to mount it outside
I don't know if it matters but I've just fitted a new aerial and went for a 5g filtered one just incase
Just fitted a practically identical one in my loft. Working fine to one of my TVs but cant find one of the pre-laid cables and the other isn't working but not the fault of the aerial. Got all channels fine I believe.

Next step is a HDHomeRun.

Screwfix have some decent priced aerials too.
Raspberry pi TV hat? Is that some form of TV tuner that brings you back a heap of channels?

Unless you previously had to install filters against 4G, 3G, 2G, cosmic radiation and background 50 Hz noise, chances are you didn't really need protection against 5G (especially not on your radio equipment, it's enterprise grade equipment, it doesn't do wild spurious emissions across the spectrum).

Save yourself money -- it's just faster (because available bandwidth is wider) and normally lower power. You're more exposed to your phone when putting it against your head: gemalto.com/bro…pdf

very true - at work we have a TV aerial on the chimney of the building that was put up in the 80s........

It works fine with our work digital TV and we get all the channels on it.

Had the slightly bigger one of these, they are flimsy and fail earlier than expected,
and don’t give any amazing signal improvement either
I bought this last week. Works perfectly

Good idea, don't want to find that your aerial is burnt down by nutters
for weaker signal areas - a log periodic aerial will almost certainly do a better job that this impressive looking but ultimately average aerial
Can it filter out 90% of the cross broadcast ?
Currently unavailable
If you need a new tv aerial it would be better to do cheap because it looks very possible that the freeview broadcasting system will be discontinued or reduced down to a very small number of channel's after 2030`s. Mobile phone company's want the frequencys Governments wants the money from selling the frequencys.
