Freeview reception - all about aerials | Installing
Saturday 25 November 2017 10:24AM

I have just fitted a new class 3 tv aerial and receive perfect reception across all Freeview channels.

Out of curiosity i removed the new coax cable from the TV and plugged in an old coax from a radio "H" shaped roof aerial (The H is mounted horizontally and has no reflector) and was surprised to again receive all Freeview which are also perfect.

Hi MikeP

Thanks for your reply.
You are talking to a real amateur here and i have no test instruments , the TV just says 'signal very good' in respect of both - is there a way of measuring the signals or asking the TV.

I only bought the house this year and the 'H' aerial probably dates from the early 80s when house was built, but im unable to help id further
