are they any good?
Whenever this question is asked you get the same response - lots of people say they are rubbish and lots say they are fine. For me I've used them for getting on for 30 years on caravans and the motorhome, before digital and after the changeover and find them OK but as with even satellites systems, they are no good if parked amongst trees, you need a clear run to the transmitter.
About the best of the non directional aerials available. Good construction and very durable
However, it IS omni-directional and in weak signal areas cannot perform as well as a directional unit..
Of the Status aerials, I would be inclined to go for the 550 or similar
On eBay, there are lots of options..
I bought one of these:
3years ago.. It was cheap and all I could afford at the time.. It has been absolutely stonking and has never failed to get decent signals...
Poor. Fine in high signal strength areas.
They make a handy target for seagulls to dump on.
Thats if they miss the van:Rofl1:
Fishing again Chris ?:Laughing:
Mine works fine after Dixon tightened a connection, but then only this week it came out of its socket on top and was hanging by its wire down the side of the van.. That isn't something I realised I had to keep an eye on. . but I will from now on.
