Guide to Installing a TV Antenna to a remote location

Installation of a TV Antenna in a Remote location

Installing an antenna in a remote location, should start with selecting the installation location and finding the most powerful and closest TV transmitter, as well as the distance from the installation site.

The recommended installation location for the antenna itself is on an antenna mast above the roofline of the house or attached to the eaves using wall mounts.

The best signal can be received when the antenna has a clear line of sight to the transmitter, so it is important to consider immediate (0-30 meters) terrain obstacles such as tall trees or buildings when choosing the installation site.

Occasionally, it is a long distance from the receiver to the nearest TV transmitter, and the location itself poses a challenge for signal reception. However, solutions can often be found with the right antenna accessories and optimal antenna placement. In some cases, a little creativity is required to find the best location for installation when the receiver is in a bad reception area (rocks, dense forests, buildings). For example, the installation can be done on high ground on the property or on the roof of a shed. The signal can be routed from the installation site with a ground cable. A working solution in a challenging location is also to install the antenna as high as possible, which can be achieved with a 2 x 2 m mast tube.

In a challenging installation location, larger and more powerful antennas are preferred to ensure high-quality TV reception. The Triax Unix 52 antenna, which has been proven to be one of the most powerful antennas on the market, is an excellent choice when the distance to the transmitter is long and the installation location is otherwise challenging. Another optimal choice is, for example, the Fagor Rhombus 48 antenna.

In addition to a large antenna, a mast amplifier is often needed to improve the signal, which is installed as close as possible to the antenna. To power the amplifier through the antenna cable, a power supply unit is needed. Power is supplied through the same cable that carries the signal from the antenna to other devices.
