    Coat hanger .. can't get more simple than that.. :Laughing:

    Set top or outside aerial ?

    Plenty of cheap set top ones but with dubious reception.. omnidirectional roof aerials are expensive and a waste of money.
    To get reliable terrestrial TV you really need a directional one fixed on the ladder or the van wall with suckers.

    But why go to that expense and trouble when you have a sat dish ?

    Hi largodandle, I can see you falling into the -- I need trap--- buying al sorts that you may need :Rofl1::Rofl1: If it is not broke then do not mend it :thumb:My garage is full of crap that I may need :Rofl1:
    After all,:BigGrin: You need another van in case the one you have breaks :Rofl1:
    Wait until your sat packs up then go out and buy a cheapo tv Ariel for a tenner (same as you put on house roof ) that will do until you fix the dish :thumb:

    The Status Compact ticks all the boxes for about £20. I don't usually need anything else when away in the truck.
