Due to poor or no reception in certain areas of the UK. I am considering installing a Maxview VuQube11 (Dome) has we have restrictions on the roof.
Can any member give me any feed back on this aerial?

Hi Snowy, yes weve had a Vu Qube 11 for 2 yrs now , we had a dish and finder which was a pain , the VQ is so much easier ,we like you had a crowded roof so the portable VQ is ideal ,because you can move it around you can miss trees and other things quite easily . We get normal digital signals most times but for the times you cant its invaluable, we did the Wild Atlantic Way in the ROI last year and they just  don't do TV there so it was used for 100% of the time ,I guess for Scotland it would be good as well. We have got it teamed up with a Humax freesat + box and its great! Well recommended    Kind regards         Paul wave

I'm amazed these don't get nicked shrugg

Is it just a regular sat connector on the end?  I've got an external sat point on the van, could it just plug directly in to that?

Hi , the VQ11 has a built in alarm ,when you disconnect the cable the alarm goes off! The VQ has 2 LNBs so you could use just 1 I guess , with a Freesat+ we use 2 , I fitted a twin ext sat point to make things simple and they are just STD sat connectors  Regards     Paul  wave

Thanks guys good intel, my idea is to secure it to the roof with their roof mounting kit. While keeping the existing aerial also a Maxview.

Maxview Satallite Aerial Empty VuQube 2

Post by PaulHeatherHN Sun Oct 27, 2019 3:48 pm

We have found that the Vuqube 2 is very easy to set up and use, press a button and sit back and relax. It covers 98% of the country with ease. We have ours as a non fitted one. When using I just pop up the fixed ladder and place on roof or attach to my bike rack. The unit is alarmed and we also use a good quality security cable and lock for added protection. Cheers Paul and Heather.

Unfortunately due to our A/C space is limited on our roof. Plus the existing Maxview 19db aerial is mounted adjacent to it. Our dealer wanted to replace it with a Status 17db aerial. I suggested a Milenco 38db either using the same fixing hole, I still await their response We have a WiFi aerial which we intend to use in connection with the tv when necessary thus reducing the need for a dish.
