How to choose the TV antenna
Instruction
1
All TV antennas can be divided into two groups: active and passive, and are more expensive than the second. But they differ not only in cost but also structural features. In the active TV antenna includes a printed circuit Board, the elements of which share of the received frequency into necessary and unnecessary.
2
Passive receivers, as a rule, consist of vibrators – receivers. In the device using the vibrator occurs the underlying frequency distribution-that is, those elements keep the plates in the "working" frequencies and transmit them to the receiver.
3
On purpose TV antenna klassificeret stationary antenna of television (antenna for the city and for the house), as well as the interior. Choosing a stationary TV antenna, note that it must be installed on a four-foot distance from the roof. Higher quality signal is transmitted to the stationary antenna of television.
4
Choose the in-car TV antenna is not easy. Regular TV antenna works conditionally. For best signal reception the antenna should be as high as possible above the surface (it is not necessary to mount in the bumper).
5
When selecting antenna of television attention should be paid to the parameters of this device. One of them is the operating frequency range. Besides, important figures – the directivity factor (indicates how many times the signal of this antenna of television more reference), the ratio of the traveling wave (alignment of the antenna with the cable), the coefficient of protective action (determines the noise immunity of the antenna).
6
Another parameter antenna of television – directional diagram. This indicator characterizes the level of the signal issued by the antenna.
Note
In some cases, to improve the quality of the picture will not work. Even after installing a filter, an amplifier or equalizer image quality will not change, so the only way is to use the professional help of a specialist.

Note the wave resistance should be not less than 75 Ohms, as it determines the amount of interference. Cables usually have different diameters – 4 mm and 6 mm. it is Better to choose a cable with a larger diameter, as it affects the protection from interference and distortion.
2
By purchasing the cable, pay attention to its cut. Television cable consists of a Central core, layer of screen, aluminum foil and an outer insulation, performs the function of protection from damage. If the foil is absent, it's plain text says that the cable is poor quality and such is better not to take. In addition, the foil should not flake off, and pasted needs to be lapped.
3
Some of the metal needs to be made core, there is no consensus. Many clients prefer all copper wire, but experts say that the wire is of a metal alloy performs its functions is not worse and cheaper. Best option: foil provided with copper braid and the insulation must be very tightly pressed to her. Braid and foil to reduce signal loss by radiation, so the image quality will be higher.
4
Choose the cable with the most dense insulation under it did not get rain water if the dish mounted on the roof or on the balcony. If water gets inside the foil will break down, and the cable will quickly become unusable.
5
Calculating the square footage, consider all the slopes, lifts turns and don't forget to leave some in reserve in case you need to move the TV in the apartment. Be careful about purchase high-quality connectors and splitters. Do not use improvised twists and adhesions. Remember that this will depend on the quality of the image, and the length of the cable.

Advice 3: How to install a TV antenna

Determine the place where you will install the TV antenna. As a rule, it is placed on the roof. Secure to the selected location of the mount bracket. If the house iron roof, then put under design the appropriate size of the rubber, which can be nailed or screwed with screws.
4
Open the preamplifier TV signal on the TV antenna. Strip the outer insulation of the cable. Insert the wire into the hole and clamp with a screwdriver the Central contacts. While shielding film should be placed under the clamp. Hold it, make sure that the braid is not in contact with the contacts of the Central conductor. Attach to a support mast of the TV antenna.
5
Install the support mast in a vertical position. The TV antenna needs to be aimed in the direction of the nearest television station. With wire or duct tape fasten it to the cable to reduce that pull on the attic of the house through a specially made hole which is sealed with sealant.
