Types of TV Antenna
TV antennas are broadly categorised into two categories – outdoor antennas and indoor antennas.
Outdoor antennas are almost indispensable if you live in isolated areas or areas that are far from the broadcasting centre. Installed atop rooftops, these antennas use the latest technologies to attract strong signals and provide the best reception to your home theatre setup.
Indoor antennas are effective enough to draw strong signals if you live near broadcasting centres. They are also your only option if you live in apartments and do not have your own exclusive roof.
An indoor antenna can be installed right next to the TV or in attics.
VHF or UHF Antenna
Before purchasing your antenna, you should know something about VHF (Very High Frequency) and UHF (Ultra High Frequency) channels. With the advancement in technology, most broadcasting centres these days transmit UHF channels with very few VHF channels available.
Most antennae, whether outdoor or indoor can pick up both the signals. However, it is prudent to invest in a UHF-compatible antenna as both VHF and UHF signals cannot be accessed simultaneously within the same locality.
Installing your Antenna
If you have purchased an outdoor antenna, placing it on the highest part of your roof is best. This allows your antenna to attract the strongest signals by positioning it in the direction of the transmission. This also helps you to avoid tall buildings or similar structures that might block the signals.
The attic is another place to install your antenna. However, a TV antenna installed in the attic does not offer the best signals. To improve reception, mount the antenna on the cross beams or masts. Avoid letting the antenna touch the floor.
In case you are installing an indoor antenna, you must place it as near to the TV set as possible. Whether you have a regular TV or a wall mounted TV, you must buy an antenna with amplifiers.
So before installing your TV indoor antenna, ensure that there extra TV points to supply power to the amplifiers.
The Cost Factor
Before installing a digital antenna, it is always wise to factor in the various costs involved. This gives you an idea of how much you can invest. Simple rooftop installations may cost less while installing an antenna with TV wall mounting can cost more.
