Aerial Installation Tips - Secrets to the Best Signal

The best televisions usually have the best signals. But sometimes, clear signal also depends on your TV aerial . Here are some tips on how to maximise aerial potential for the best signal for your television in Auckland.

Location Tips
  • Make sure that buildings or other infrastructures are not blocking the TV tower.
  • The higher the antenna, the better the signal. Place it at least six feet above the roof.
  • Make your lead-in line shorter to avoid excessive signal loss.
  • Do not put your TV antenna near the chimney.
  • Follow local ordinances about installing antennas, if there are any.
  • Make sure that there are no power lines that could touch the antenna or its lines.
Aerial Installation Tips
  • Get suggestions from the dealer to determine the best mounting foundation material for the aerial.
  • Carefully read the instructions on how to assemble the antenna.
  • To protect it from lightning, use standard ground rods.
  • Try to point the spine of the antenna in the direction of the TV tower.
  • Adjust the antenna by having someone watch the TV set while shifting the television aerial or adjusting its height.
  • Keep the lead-in line away from sharp bends and splices.
  • Use stand-off devices to separate the twin lead from the metal gutters for at least three inches.
  • Secure the coaxial cable by taping it to the mast. This will avoid further strain on the signal.
  • The excess line looped in the wall or behind the television may cause interference.
