Have been approched to upgrade a caravan park in central scotland before June.At the moment it has an aerial pointing at Black Hill picking up the five analogue signals and then it rebroadcasts on a vertical polarity to all the caravans.
I have solved the problem about change the input to digital but cannot find a supplier of the broadcast equipment incase the original is faulty or non compatable.
Any ideas where I will get this form

Hi Brian,

It does not appear to be in their online promotional stuff, I saw it in a mailshot i received this morning

Mark Aberfan Aerials: Perhaps they noticed and didn't put it online?

Hi Brian,

That would presume a level of professional ability somewhere in the chain, something not demonstrated in the picture ! No lashing strap or wire to be seen.
The prices are nothing special either, most contributing installers here could equal or beat them.

Im wondering how much those doing this contract will get, I bet its less than 50% of the price charged.

Mark Aberfan Aerials: Any chance of a scan or photo of the offending item?
