frenchfancy Unfortunately the member who was going to swap me the short pole for the long pole pulled out. So i got in touch with Clint at Premier, who was very helpful indeed, and for Ģ19.95 i bought the small pole, and have swapped it over today, very simple as he said. So thanks again guys coming up with a doable solution for me.

frenchfancy I am of the same opinion about just swapping the pole and the top, just waiting for jedi to get back to me.

Techno100 The through the roof mounting parts don't need to be swapped as they are the same for both so just swap your antenna and pole

frenchfancy No my aerial has not been fitted yet, due to roof space and the sat dish fixing plate, there is no room, as it would also interfere with the Heiki roof light, so i need the short pole version so it can be sited in an overhead locker

Hi David,

The mast is in the wardrobe, so no problem with length.

frenchfancy Mine has not yet been fitted at all, as i explained in my first post, as it won't fit in the space available on the roof due to sat dish. So i need the short pole versionb to fit in an overhead locker.

premiermotorhomes Good afternoon,

The first point to clarify is the naming structure of these aerials;

530 & its replacement the 550 feature the short mast.
540 & its replacement the 560 feature the long mast.

As indicated by Techo100, the long mast must be fitted with a wall mounted support bracket, so moving from a short mast to a long mast will be determined by whether there is a gap of 40mm between the pole and a wall that is suitable for securing the bracket.

This information was obtained from the installation instructions here:

If you would like to confirm whether the mast can be shortened, call Grade UK on 0115 986 7151, option 2 and speak to Clint or Harvey who are both very helpful and will be able to confirm if this is possible.

Alternatively, as you are have a long mast and wish to have a short one, then you could look at purchasing p/n 0-2726/ASS Status 530 Short Mast and Drive Shaft SRP Ģ19.95inc VAT from your local dealer, so long as they have an account with Grade UK

frenchfancy Hi if it is the same Status 530 Digital Aerial, why can't we just swap the whole aerial. I mean the pole and the head, as mentioned in a previous post ( by a member) Pm me if you are interested. I could post mine it is Ģ8.50 by City Link, and you could post yours for the same amount. I know the price as the member i bought it off sent it that way.

Techno100 Its important that your pole was fitted the correct distance from the locker wall or the internal support bracket (long pole) may not fit.
Also the coax for the short pole may not be long enough for the long pole so best to swap the head and pole
