Why don't we use.. by Brian Gaff
Rhombic antennas here? At Huff they should be relatively small and have rising gain with rising frequency. I made one once for uhf and it worked very well, though it needed to be terminated by a resistor to make it single directional, and seemed to have a lobe either above or below the...

No reflector on new TV antenna by [email protected]
We just had a new antenna installed on the roof and it doesn't seem to have a reflector at the base, just some extra elements instead. Is this normal these days and is it something to do with digital vs analogue TV or just cost cutting? -- Spud

Novelty aerals. by Brian Gaff
Back in the 70s there used to be a trend toward ornaments that sat on the tv, supposedly having aerials inside them. I can clearly remember a small , well not that small, naff looking statue of a girl made in plastic. Never seemed to work very well as I suspect they just had a bit of ewiire...

My TV has started 'posterizing' by Roger Mills[_2_]
I have a Philips 37" flat screen HD-ready TV which is about 10 or 11 years old. Of late, it's started posterizing its picture under some circumstances. . My picture isn't as extreme as that, and most colours are ok - but the problem particularly affects (European) skin tones - and there are...

Aerial riggers I have known, Part 3 by Bill Wright[_3_]
Aerial riggers I have known Part Three Barry I’ve changed the names and places, but I swear to God everything else here is true. I thought I’d better say that because the tale of Barry is really extraordinary. In 1981 an English local council which I will not name had worries about the...

BTs demo channel now gone? by Brian Gaff
Have bt vision decided to stop paying for their ever so boring channel on freeview plugging their sport now? Also does anyone understand the reason for channel names like Spike and Quest Red? They seem to have nothing whatever to do with the content. Brian

dashcams: how do they link to my PC? by Bill Wright[_3_]
OK I need a dashcam. Stuff keeps happening. Kid on a motorbike comes onto the roundabout from the pavement out of control and if I hadn't stopped abruptly would have been under my wheels. Guy in a big merc comes round a blind bend and passes me with inches to spare, me with the nearside wheels...

Freesat? by Mr Pounder Esquire
I know very little about TV and watch very little of it. Wife has it on 24/7. We have had SKY for many many years. The wife has just come back from a few days away in a holiday cottage and was very impressed with the Freesat. She wants me to look into it :-( So, here I go. Is it all really free? Do...

Bressay Transmitter by Tweed[_2_]
I'm currently in Lerwick. I'm curious as to why the local transmitter, Bressay, appears to be vertically polarised. I thought this was usually reserved for low power relay stations.

Hi I have been repairing a Labgear MSA282 distribution amp (replaced faulty PSU Cap) and I noticed there are a couple of jumpers which seem to be associated with the VHF input connector. They are marked "Wideband" and "VHF". I intend to use this amp with a combined VHF/DAB aerial but I'm not...
