Assuming I can get to the roof ok (there’s one in the loft also but I can’t see where the lead comes out).There’s a prize for the first person to mention Rod Hull. Looks like I t won it! Posted 4 years ago wwaswasSubscribercan you see which way all the other houses aerials point or are they all in the roofs? Posted 4 years ago Mr_CMemberSome TVs and set top boxes give you a signal strength meter. Obviously you need someone at the other end looking at it as carrying a 46″ tv up a ladder could end badly. Posted 4 years ago patriotproMemberleft a bit, right a bit, now don’t move – job done Posted 4 years ago soobaliasMemberive got a thingy you plug the cable into and displays the signal strength, was really handy when we lived in a poor signal area with loft aerials. Posted 4 years ago cynic-alMemberCheers, mine points in the same direction (roughly) as others (to Fife).One of my pvrs has a signal strength meter too.I just wondered if there were any secrets. Posted 4 years ago brakesMemberyou can get apps for smartphones which show you where the nearest transmitters are and which direction to point your aerial at. the app I used was a bit clunky but it worked.EDIT: it was called UK Aerial Alignment (Android) Posted 4 years ago DracSubscriberCompass and Google the bearing that’s all I did but put mine in the loft as there was no need to go on the roof. Posted 4 years ago VanManMemberSame method as Drac, just remember to keep the compass away from metal or the job takes longer 😳 Posted 4 years ago SandwichSubscriberDon’t take the emu with you though. These are not an asset when ladder climbing.
