Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product Easy to install and reception is excellent. Installed in a high position in stables to keep the wife happy while she works. Only just installed hence the single star for reliability.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the price I required an aerial for my FM radio but didn't want to add it the the mast with my TV aerials. This aerial was easy to install in my loft, the only gripe I have is when fastening the coax lead the supplied screws pulled loose before being tight enough to hold cable. I have put 3 stars for reliability as I only fitted it yesterday.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Adequate - Just Firstly the poor stuff Cable attached to aerial with ill fitting self- tappers - a common complaint. No clamp in the housing so cable ties needed Came with horrid white coax cable not the advertised black. The supplied coax plug came out of a Christmas Cracker - really poor. Put simply its a TV type fitting it will not fit into an AVR This is installed outside, if it lasts the guarantee period I'll be surprised. On the plus side - Its relatively cheap (and shows)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple answer to bad reception Having moved to a house with no FM radio aerial, my hifi hardly performed with an old simple indoor 'tape' aerial which I had. I thought I would need a proper external aerial fitted, but tried this simple aerial in the loft first and found it very effective (it could be fitted outside for even better results). It has the additional benefit of being omnidirectional meaning it received stations broadcast from any direction. Can't comment on reliability, but I doubt it will ever degrade in the loft.

Is it essential that the central bar is a diameter to the curve? I have removed the central bar and fitted it on the outside of the curved part to make it easier to fit to the upright aerial mast. Will this affect the performance?

Asked by: Leiter
It should not noticeably affect signal.

How does the cable fit into the radio, is it a push connector or the F type.

Asked by: Ranger01
The connector supplied looks to be of the push fit type.

Will this also receive DAB?

Asked by: JonnieB
Hi, No this will not receive DAB signals as the aerial is for FM only - for DAB signals you would need 23595. Thanks

Splitting the signal

Can I split the signal from this to supply two rooms using a simple TV type coax splitter or should this be done using a powered UHF/FM amplifier/distributer?
Asked by: Apollo11
Hi Apollo11, By using a coax splitter you will also be splitting the signal strength between the two TVs. If you are in a strong signal area this may be okay but in most cases you will need to use an amplifier or distributor (which is best placed near the aerial). We do have a full range of amplifiers with Screwfix including remote power options. Thanks Labgear UK

Is there a balun?

The item description states 'Electronic 75 ohm Balun' but from the customer reviews, and the illustrations in the instructions PDF, I can see no evidence of a balun being included. Does this aerial have a balun or not?
Asked by: G4BAU
Hi, the aerial does come with a Balun as stated, this is the black box located at the back of the aerial. Thanks.
