    I have one fitted to my van and as per usual it does not work.

    Has anyone got one and if so does yours work well?

    I am told rewiring works wonder but not got a clue how to do this.

    Advice please?

    Got one on the boat and it works well, got them on vans and they seem ok.

    Make sure tha booster amp is working.

    Had one on our motor cruiser and it was pretty poor to be honest.

    Waste of roof space .. they only work when you can see a transmitter :Doh:

    Best think to do John..... use it as a frizzbee :Laughing:

    either buy a domestic and use a pole on the draw bar or one of these from any camp shop

    Only in high signal strength areas.

    With a caravan the cheap solution is a standard house aerial on a Pole, or Lithuanian.

    Mine works brilliantly in areas that how gone digital but you do have to try the booster with and without power and in high or low setting. Was useless before the switch to digital but has now come good again.

    We've noticed that ours is better now the digital switchover is under way. We were able to use it, rather than get the sat dish out, at the Cheshire Show, Linton Lock and Ambleside.

    Not good advice, Brian.
    I tried a Lithuanian but the U bolts tended to slip.
    Poles are much better. They can just hold it in the air for ages.
