Having only recently joined the motorhome world I require advice on which type of aerial/sat dish is best to obtain. Probably wont be venturing abroad.

Any input will be most welcome up! scratch head

A few minutes work to set-up requiring step-ladders inside the van, but it was cheap and very effective.

Oh and before anyone comments about the caravan being so close on a CC site, the van was being towed by me, so shared my pitch.

Home made and designed aerial bracket, there are two of them on the roof

Hi there,

We have a Caro fully automatic "dish" with a Freeview receiver and an Avtex W103D TV (complete with DVD slot and VHF Radio).

Can get TV all over the UK and all the way down to the Mediterranean.

Can recommend. allthumbz

Best regards,

I has withstood some nasty gusty nights, but it does keep me awake worrying, but I don't think I need to worry given the weather it has coped with in some exposed places in the Pennies.

I lower my HF show pole aerial at night though

They have moved BBC radio services to the narrower footprint just recently. Are you still getting those stations in Spain?
