3 Get started
To ensure the antenna to work properly, read
the user manual of your television before you
start. Set the television so that it receives the
signal from an ANTENNA instead of CABLE or
SATELLITE.
Installation
Determine the signal strength
Before Installation, determine the best
location for optimum reception. It is important
for the antenna to have an unobstructed path
to the transmitter. For best results, ensure the
antenna faces the location of the transmitter.
Note
•• Choose a location near a window which gives
the antenna a clear view of the transmitter.
Note
•• Place the antenna away from the metal surface
to avoid interference.

Turn the TV or FM radio to the desired
channel/station. Move the dipoles in
different directions up and down until the
reception is achieved.

Set up a digital tuner with this
antenna
You can install available channels with the digital
TV tuner. This automatic process is part of the
setup of the tuner. Ensure the antenna has
set up properly before the tuner can receive
viewable channels.
There are two ways to connect the antenna to
the TV:
•
Connect the antenna to a digital tuner.
If the signal strength is good enough, the
channels can be memorized in the tuner
automatically .
•
Connect the antenna directly to the TV.
Tune to the analogue channels and find
the best antenna location. Then reconnect the antenna to the digital tuner.
Ensure the signal strength is good enough
before you install the channels with the
tuner.

5 Frequently
asked questions
Can the antenna be powered by a DC power
supply in a boat, RV or camper?
Yes, there is a DC power socket located at the
back of the antenna. Plug your cable/adapter
into the antenna and then into your power
source.
Where should I place the antenna in order to
get the best reception possible?
Choose a location near a window which gives
the antenna a clear view of the transmitter.
Tip
•• For best reception, place the antenna away
from the metal surface to avoid interference.
How do I know how much gain (amplification)
is required to receive a clear picture?
Once you have the VHF dipoles extended to
the longest length, turn on the amplifier. Turn
the amplifier up to the max position and then
reduce as needed. In some case, you need to
turn the amplifier down to receive a clearer
picture.
Can I set up this antenna with a digital tuner?
Yes, this antenna can be set up with a digital
tuner (see the section on “Set up a digital
tuner with this antenna”).

7 Glossary
A
Amplifier
A device, either a single stage or a large scale
circuit with multiple stages for creating gain,
i.e. it makes small signals larger.
Antenna
A device, such as a rod or wire, which picks up
a received radio frequency signal or radiates a
transmitted RF signal.
U
UHF (Ultra high frequency)
In radio or TV broadcasting: it is the frequency
range of electromagnetic waves which lies
between 300 MHz and 3 GHz (3000 MHz).
V
C
Coaxial
A single copper conductor, surrounded with
a layer of insulation, covered by a surrounding
copper shield and finally, an insulating jacket.
An unbalanced transmission line with constant
impedance. In audio, this type is commonly
used for low level, line signals terminated in
RCA connectors.
D
DVB (Digital Video Broadcasting)
DVB is a suite of internationally accepted open
standards for digital television.
F
FM (Frequency Modulation)
In radio broadcasting: a method of modulation
in which the frequency of the carrier voltage
is varied with the frequency of the modulation
voltage.
H
HDTV (High-Definition Television)
It is a digital television broadcasting system
with higher resolution than traditional
10
television systems (standard-definition TV,
or SDTV). HDTV is digitally broadcast;
the earliest implementations used analog
broadcasting, but today digital television
(DTV) signals are used, requiring less
bandwidth due to digital video compression.
EN
VHF (Very high frequency)
In radio or TV broadcasting: it is the frequency
range of electromagnetic waves which lies
between 30 MHz and 300 MHz.
