TV Aerial Installation in Fremington

Today we installed a high gain aerial on a property in Fremington to replace a loft aerial system with poor signal. A good signal was achieved by attaching the aerial high up on the gable end of the building.

Aerial Installations in East and South Devon

This week has taken me all over Devon – Tuesday was Tiverton and Cullompton, replacing old aerials for the Stockland Hill transmitter, and Wednesday – Dawlish and Exeter – installed a high gain TV aerial in an attic to receive the Stockland Hill transmitter in new build houses.

TV Aerial Installation in Minehead, West Somerset

Today we installed a communal aerial on a property in Minehead town centre. The property was a single storey, so was quite low down and behind many tall houses.

We weren’t able to receive the Woodcombe relay or Carhampton relay as there were buildings in the way, and as a result we couldn’t achieve a very good signal with all the channels from Mendip – the main transmitter which covers most of Somerset – so we had to install a second aerial to provide reception of the Wenvoe transmitter, across the water in South Wales near Cardiff.

Freesat Dish Installation in Remote Exmoor

This afternoon, we installed a satellite dish for Freesat reception in a remote Exmoor valley.

The old dish was unserviceable so was replaced with a new fibreglass model which will not corrode and is designed for extreme weather conditions.

TV Aerial and Satellite Dish Installation in Ilfracombe

Today we installed a TV aerial and Satellite dish system at a victorian 3 storey terraced house in Ilfracombe.

We installed two aerials on the roof, one 20 element group B for Preseli to give the full Freeview channels, and a small aerial to receive the Chambercombe Ilfracombe relay at Hillsborough to add the local region TV channels (BBC 1 South West, ITV1 Westcountry, etc.)

We also installed a satellite dish on the roof. The cables were run down into the house and into every room. Satellite and TV aerial points were added to each room.

Chimney Aerial Installation in Croyde

Today we installed an aerial on a chimney in Croyde. They previously had a satellite dish which was bolted into the brickwork which was not a good idea as the chimney brickwork can suffer water ingress.

So we always use chimney lashing kits where possible.

A log periodic aerial was installed on a short pole, which is an aerial renowned for its low-visual impact.
