VHF/FM Omni-Directional Aerial & 10m Cable
Labgear FM Aerial
The aerial works very well in Guisborough, an area of exceptionally bad TV & FM reception.
However the small screws and small washers essential to attach the active part of the aerial to the cable connection unit were totally inadequate. Fortunately suitable screws were to hand in the home, without which electrical contact would not have been made between the aerial and the cables.
Labgear would do well to upgrade these screws and washers.

Allright I suppose.
Antennae arms twisted. Real effort to true them up.
Holes to take self tappers to make connections too loose. Had to wrap the screws.
Plastic weather cap a very poor fit.
Only works vertically!
Signal seems adequate.
Cheap (and nasty).

Too expensive for the quality
Spent an age putting this aerial together!
First thing to note is that the aerial comes in two halves joined by the black plastic.
There's not wrong with that as such, but the big issue I had was that the 'self-tapping' screws that hold the aerial together are the same ones to which you need to connect your cable to.
These screws are rubbish and don't bear a lot of messing with. My screws ending up failing meaning I had to go searching around for some replacements in what I had at the time.
Product would be vastly improved by the use of some bolts!
Anyway reception is good and it's great to get a fixing kit and cable with product.
