Re FM aerial?

Hi

 

Just got myself an omnidirectional FM aerial.

Is it OK to fit it near to my TV aerial? Will it interfere in any way with the quality of either TV or Tuner?

Re: Re FM aerial?

If you mean one of those circular omni aerials, then you might be better off getting a trained installer to put up a half wave dipole.

Read this section on FM and DAB aerials from a professional aerial installation company. (Especially their comments on FM omnis!)

Agreed: Aerials can be tricky. Get someone who knows his onions...

If the shoes don't fit, change the horse.

Oh dear it is the round one I've got (Maplins). Bought it couple of months ago so will try to change/ refund it.

 

Thanks for the info.Yes
