  1. Hi
    we have just purchased a little caravan and are looking forward to using it when we retire soon. Its all a new area to us. We have found your site because we are looking at whats required for reasonable TV reception and have down loaded your revised document. Was wondering if the aerial Fracaro LPV 345F is still your favoured unit.
    Look forward to keeping in touch

  2. Dean,
    Yes that aerial would be definitely my favourite unit. All one has to do wherever one is, is find out what polarization the transmitter is, and where it is, and I do have that information on the web as well.
    My only other advise would be that if you strike problems, satellite TV is the only other answer, you know exactly what you are going to get wherever you are.

    1. It seems that you may have given me the incentive to give details of other methods of acquiring C1 details, but the document provided should still be accurate enough so long as you are using a later model tuning meter.
