The quality of signal you may have noticed Rob is a little lower at this time at around 6 maybe Dave can confirm ?

easy a self employed rigger doing 4 installs a day at £200 minimum a install here in Sussex minus the material say £300 that's £500 a day five days a week £2500 per week

and here in Sussex by what cars these guys drive is not far off the mark

sorry mazbar but any contracter here in Sussex having just spoken to a friend of mine who is a rigger says that I'm correct and that is the standard basic charge for a aerial from a professional listed trader .

there are trader's for a basic install who charge £250 plus so you see there is wide variation across the uk in having work done

i myself was charged £653 five years ago from a top Sussex trader for a full install in a new house which was way over the top and eventually got a £100 refund so even people like myself can get caught out by a rouge element within what had been a good business previously

well that is i guess the north south divide at work which is unfortunate but London and the south is a basically a like it or leave it from all the professional listed traders as are all trades and even thou you can pay over the odds the overall standard is still found wonting

at the end of the day it's all about customers feedback when you get that right your laughing get it wrong and you will struggle especially where i live near gatwick

they are ridiculous Joe but in the south of england you get little choice
as for a professional fit i have yet to find anyone on our estate of 200 properties with a good install with wires down all properties not only that but in the wrong colour
my house with no wires is top with a loft install and the only one on CP
