Q & A

TV aerial

Does anyone have any information on the effectiveness of the small rectangular TV aerials which have appeared on a number of boats recently?

A small aerial can work well if the TV signal is good. If however the signal is poor, a higher gain aerial will be needed.
If boats close to you are sprouting these aerials, that would indicate that they work in that location.

Some of the small rectangular TV aerials are compact satellite receivers- these can work extremely well, as long as they have an unobstructed view of the sky.
