FAQ

Digital Antenna Installation

Are Amplified Antennas heavy duty antennas?

Yes. Amplified antennas are made with thicker elements, UV treated plastics, stainless steel screws and rivets to ensure a long life. They are designed for Australian weather conditions as well as bird life.

What is the best antenna for my area?

This will depend if you are in a VHF/UHF area or a UHF only area. Your signal strength may also be affected by the distance from the transmitter and the topography of the area. The size and performance of the antenna will need to be more powerful if you are far away from the transmitter or you are located in a dense vegetation or hilly area.

Will my existing antenna receive digital TV?

Most existing older antennas were never designed to effectively receive the new channels used for digital TV, particularly 11,12 and 34. However, in some instances where the signal is particularly strong and of good quality (such as near to the transmitter), digital TV may work. Our experience shows that older TV antennas will usually have old type cable, splitters and other connections that certainly will not be suitable for digital TV reception. We would recommend renewing your complete system, including the antenna, for trouble free digital TV viewing.

How long is the warranty on Amplified Antennas ?

Our antennas carry a five year no fuss asked warranty.

Extra TV points

What’s wrong with my old RG59 or RG6 single/dual shield coax?

Quad-shield (4 shield) RG6 coax offers superior protection for your digital ready TV system from interference caused by electrical equipment operating in your own home or nearby. This type of interference can disrupt the digital TV system.

Why do I have to use quad-shield RG6 coax for digital TV?

Quad-shield (4 shield) RG6 coax offers superior protection for your digital ready TV system from interference caused by electrical equipment operating in your own home or nearby. This type of interference can disrupt the digital TV system.

How many TV points can I have in my home?

You can have as many as you wish. However, the more TV wall points you have, you will weaken your TV antenna reception strength. You may need a stronger signal antenna and/or an amplifier booster.

How much does a new digital antenna cost?
