"We always struggled to get our aerial in exactly the right position, as we're a long way from the transmitter and the signal meter on the TV seems to bounce up and down unhelpfully across a wide range of arc.
This product made it very easy to adjust the direction so that the aerial was exactly in the middle of the signal arc. (Initially got two lights on. Turn left until one light goes off. Mark that position, turn right until one light goes off, mark that position, then put aerial half way between the two.)
Bingo. 20 minutes, job done, instead of faffing around trying to guess where the signal is strongest!"
"Have used this product twice now and found the signal within seconds both times and when TV switched on a good picture, so would recommend this to anyone saves struggling and twisting aerial to find a signal. Does not show any signal on the round Status aerials on caravans"
"A great little product. I had to install a new aerial in my loft so this little gem was the perfect gadget to find me the best signal in under a minute, job done. If you are installing an aerial in your loft or on your roof this is a must for both DIY and professional."
"hi bought one as i had trouble fitting my friends,, now iv fitted about 15 ,, with in 30 min on each job,,, make sure u buy a square batter before this as u need one,, there brill just make a scap bit of ariel up and ever time u fit one use the scrap to hook up and test it,, then put urs in which ur wanting done,, i would say,,, thank u"
"Did exactly what it said it would. SO much easier than trying to adjust an aerial without it. Worth every penny not to have argued about the best position for the aerial! Needs a battery (small square one like t he smoke detector ones) which wasn't made clear."
"Depending on atmospherics I would sometimes lose a lot of the 'weaker' signalled digital channels (ITV, CH4, Five etc.). So I bought this to see if my aerial was pointing in the optimum direction and see if I could improve the reception. Sure enough, this little gizmo showed I was about 15 degrees out with the monitor only showing three green LEDs as opposed to a 'full strength' four. Now I'm actually pointing directly at Crystal Palace I've had no problems at all and all channels are coming thorough perfectly with no signal break up. Of course, whilst it is very easy to use you do still need to go up on your roof to actually fiddle with your aerial, so don't 'do a Rod Hull' and do make sure you're safe!"
"Small and portable. You can put a 9V PP3 battery inside. There is a (cheap) on/off switch on the side. There are 4 LEDs, one red, and 3 green. Connect to your antenna and move it around until you get as many green LEDs to light as possible. It easily allowed me to determine the correct direction to point the antenna. Bottom line - cheap and easy to use, but the supplied F- connector cable was misery short and it would have been nice if it were at least double the length. Note: the connections are F-type just like used on Sky/satellite set top boxes - this is no big deal as adapters are provided."
"Gives a reasonable indication of the signal strength provided by a UHF TV aerial. Good value for money and adequate for occasional use to align TV aerials and ensure sufficient signal is available to drive a TV or other UHF tuner."
"easy to use with simple display it can be used by directly plugging into the aerial so you can literally walk around with the aerial in your hand connect to this unit to find the best mounting point, then fine adjust for perfect picture. you will need a square 9V battery that's not included"
"I bought this as I had to align a new aerial for a client. Having noted the direction the original aeial was pointed I connected the signal finder via an F connector and switched on. By moving the aerial I found that I had got the maximum signal strength.So Job done. All I had to do was tighten alignment nuts and pass the cable under the tiles to a 4 way splitter mounted in the loft."
