Lots good advice here, thanks to everyone.

The aerial kit does seem to seal itself but I will put some sealant in relevant places.

Hope you enjoyed imagining me spinning around in the air Geo thanks for pointing that out though.

Fast and soft, I will remember that too.

No hole drills right size around here but the local hardware shop is getting me one in for the morning - all systems go then.

Council job .. eeek, all those men watching

HI Tricia,

go for it girl, you said you wanted to try and fit it yourself, but really I just thought you were having me on

I'm in the Gower tomorrow but only for a couple hours. If I had the time I would have popped over with my camera and taken some pictures, all the advisers here could have judged your craftwomanship

Pleased you decided on the Status 530/5 excellent aerial, you won't be disappointed.

MHS...Rob

It will be a sinch, the 530 seals itself dont be tempted to put any seal on or arround the hole as it will squish up when you put the seals on and cover the pole in sealer and make it a bugger to put up and down.

Get some pictures before and after.

I uesd a small long drill bit to triple check my drill position. You may need to order one i had to. all will be well just make sure you check your measurments.

Good luck
