It is marked as Low / High so leave that in high for now.

As people have said , look out at other aerials especially ones on fixed buildings and point yours the same way with the mast pushed right up.

Make sure the tv is set to Digital then do a retune and you should start to see channels being listed. I think the max I ever see is 93 tv + about 30radio.

The tv should have something like an info button on the remote and this should then display signal strength and quality. If you can see this then slowly rotate for best or most consistent quality. You might then need to retune and you should get more channels.

Oh I forgot. The little handle at the bottom of the mast allows the whole outside assembly to tilt so that you can get horiz or vert polarization. Again its a case of copying other properly installed aerials. ( I have known however whole streets to be wrong, all the riggers playing copy the leader!) Fully clockwise is Horizontal. The leaflet is a bit odd because it seems to still be in the analogue age. Digital is a rather different
Good evening Mike,

The two output socket on the 530/540/215 Purple power pack and Orange booster pack are identical, as I have previously queried this with Vision UK, formerly Grade UK.

The later VP model boosters supplied with the 550/560/330 outputs are clearly labelled and are now F connectors. I expect the outputs on these to be different as these units now provide a separate radio output, as the TV outputs are likely to have filters to allow for LTE/4G.

Hi Chris,
You are correct in all but one thing the Filters for 4G could not be added at time of product development because the frequency hadn’t been decided upon at that point. The New amplifiers do however have filters for some other radio frequencies and are now screened from electrical interference such as appliances within the Motorhome.

The new range of amplifiers are ready to receive an inline filter that will soon be available for you to stock, this clever little device will fit between the amplifier and aerial and allow FM and DAB signals to pass through it, most other domestic filters which are on the market will not allow FM/DAB to pass through so are unsuitable.

Best Regards
