installing a tv antenna
Rang a few places today asking for some quotes on supply and install a tv antenna on a house for my grandparents prices range from $350 - $450... abit much for the olds...
I was thinking of doing it for them as I have installed a few dishes and know how to install and set those up so how hard is it to install a outdoor antenna on to the side of the house??
Is the wiring etc easy to do like wire up the cable to the antenna and will the usual f type connectors be good enough for the wall plug? I know I will need adapters to hook up the TV to it...
never done this before with antenna's any help would be greatly appreciated
If you can do a dish you can do an antenna.
Just buy a good quality antenna and make sure no water can travel along the cable into the house and youll be fine.

Have a feild strength meter and Live in coffs if thats anwhere near your olds.. $350 to $400 is steep, unless there are mastheads etc then maybe so...
As said above though if you can install a dish you can install a antenna, easy
make sure all your fixtures are rigid and tight, If you don't have a meter spin the antenna slowly and use the neighbours antenna as a guide to which way your pointing.
Mr Antenna will install in Melbourne a basic kit and tune everything in for $150 -$175. That is a starting point for pricing.
