The Half Wave FM dipole works very well on FM, and pretty well on DAB as well ! (see FM/DAB aerial tests) comes with a rotating clamp to fit poles up to 2" diameter. The aerial is 59” -1.5m - high (or 59” wide if polarised horizontally ! ).

The Folded FM dipole aerial gives very good results on FM (see FM/DAB test results). Its main advantage is its strength so it is a good choice for exposed locations (c/w rotating clamp for the aerial`s 1" boom, fits poles 1” to 2”).

The folded dipole is both 59” (1.5m) high, or 59” wide if horizontally polarised !

Note, if there is such a thing as a “universal aerial” (which there isn`t, but bear with me) this is it. In most cases you can`t go far wrong with a Log 36, especially if you need a wideband aerial. It is particularly suitable for Digital (i.e. Freeview transmissions) and is relatively short which is preferable for loft installations. If you`re still short of gain then try adding a variable gain (capable of being turned down to a low level) mast head amp. Also see DY14WB.

The Wall Kit consists of everything needed to fit an aerial (on a wall, obviously ! ) :


Log 36 aerial, if there is such a thing as a “universal aerial”

(there isn`t, but bear with me....)  then this is it.


5.5 foot cranked pole which is the most versatile mast as it can not only “crank” around an obstruction but also be cut down to  a 3, 4 or 5ft crank, or a 3ft straight, if required.  

Note this pole is 1.25” x 16G (not the thinner 18G).

A straight pole is a no cost option, please phone for this.


9” x 9” wall bracket as with all our brackets it is welded and hot dipped galvanised.  The total stand off with the 6ft cranked pole is 19” (approx). See “Thick N` Thin”.


1 x pair of plated 1.5” V bolts c/w washers (stainless V bolts are available at a supplement of £3.25)


4 x Screws, Wall Plugs and Washers


Insulation Tape (33m) (to tape the cable to the pole, not to waterproof an outside joint ! )


20m Of Quality Cable (black), the average downlead is about 15m, but we supply 20m, just to be on the safe side !

The cable and/or clips can be changed to brown or white, please phone for this.


Box 100 clips (black)


Hole Cover (brown)


Hole Tidy (semi opaque)


Co-Ax Plug (brass) (c/w instructions)


Eye screw c/w plug

The Chimney Kit consists of everything needed to fit an aerial (on a chimney, obviously ! ) :


Log 36 aerial, if there is such a thing as a

“universal aerial” (there isn`t, but bear with me....)  

then this is it.


5.5 foot cranked pole which is the most versatile mast as it can not only “crank” around an obstruction but also be cut down to a 3, 4 or 5ft crank, or a 3ft straight, if required. 1.25” x 16 gauge.

A straight pole is a no cost option, please phone.


8” Mitre Chimney Bracket, as with all our brackets it is welded and hot dipped galvanised. The total stand off with the 6ft cranked pole is 17” (approx).


Lashing Kit (c/w instructions)


Insulation Tape (33m) (to tape the cable to the pole)


20m Of Quality Cable (black), the average downlead is about 15m, but we supply 20m, just to be on the safe side !


Box 100 clips (black)

TV Aerial “Kits”


For those unsure exactly what they want / need we have put together two “Kits” which we feel will be appropriate for the great majority of installs. The Log36 aerial is suitable for all transmitters in areas of good, medium or medium/poor signal strength. If your signal is unsatisfactory after fitting this antenna we would advise the fitting of a variable gain mast head amp which will work well with a Log 36. I must say that unless you`re sure you`re in a poor signal area, I`d just order the kit because it`ll probably work fine without the amp. You`re only risking a bit of P & P (for the M/H amp re-order) anyway !


If you want to fit an aerial in the loft you can just buy the aerial, the loft kit, the cable and CoAx plug separately.


The contents of the kit can also be used as a reminder of what

is needed if you are making up an individual order.


If you wish to fit a different aerial, the wall mounting kit is available without the antenna.

The components in the kit would be as above (excluding the aerial, obviously).


If you wish to fit a different aerial, the chimney mounting kit is available without the aerial.


The components in the kit would be as above (excluding the aerial, obviously).

The cable is just as important as the antenna, and the downlead

should be changed as a matter of course if any work is undertaken

on the aerial, unless you are sure it is sound and of good quality.

The DY14WB Mk2 is the correct aerial for wideband transmitters for sites in poor signal areas.

It is also an alternative aerial for C/D group and E group transmitters.

The dimensions and the relative test performance of the antenna (Wideband, C/D group or E group) can be found on the relevant tables.

(c/w cradle & tilting clamp for poles up to 2”).

Pre-terminated 5m lash kit c/w washers

The 3 element FM gives excellent (directional) results on FM, see FM/DAB test results. The 3 element FM is 59” (1.5m) wide by 34” (86cm) long.

(c/w clamp to fit poles up to 2.0 inches)

This is the antenna I`d go for if you are unsure of the transmitter you will use, but you are sure you need a “high gain” aerial.  But most people don`t need a high gain aerial !  See Log36 or DM Log.

The DY14 is a good choice for someone needing to fit a high gain wideband aerial in the loft because it`s only 5 ft long, which is pretty compact for an aerial with this amount of gain.

For loft mounted installs we would normally recommend the XB10A due to its smaller size.


Back to the top

For loft mounted installs we would normally recommend the XB10B due to its smaller size.


Back to the top

XB10A aerial XB10B aerial

The XB10A is an alternative aerial to the Yagi18A for A group transmitters for sites in poor signal areas.

We would normally recommend the Yagi18A for external installs and the XB10A for loft installs.  

The dimensions and test performance of the antenna can be found on the relevant tables.

(c/w cradle and tilting clamp for poles up to 2”)

The XB10B is an alternative aerial to the Yagi18B for B group transmitters for sites in poor signal areas.

We would normally recommend the Yagi18B for external installs and the XB10B for loft installs.  

The dimensions and test performance of the antenna can be found on the relevant tables.

(c/w cradle and tilting clamp for poles up to 2”)

XB10K aerial

The XB10K is an alternative aerial to the Yagi18K for K group transmitters for sites in poor signal areas.

It is particularly suitable for loft installs by virtue of its relatively small size for the gain of the aerial.  

The dimensions and test performance of the antenna can be found on the relevant tables.

(c/w cradle and tilting clamp for poles up to 2”)

For loft mounted installs we would normally recommend the XB10K

due to its smaller size and slightly higher gain.


Note that the TV frequency band after switchover only goes up to CH60, so this aerial

is effectively a “post DSO” wideband because its gain curve goes past CH60 !

The DM Log periodic is the correct aerial for those in strong to medium signal areas for any transmitter.

This is also the aerial we recommend for caravans and boats. The dimensions and test performance of the antenna can be found on the relevant tables. Aerial comes with a 6in trailing lead (terminated in an F connector then an F coupler) and a weatherproof shroud. c/w tilting clamp for poles up to 2” (we recommend all Log Periodics are slightly tilted up at the front end).

Zone 1 and zone 2 satellite dishes to scale

Should I fit a Zone 1 or a Zone 2 satellite dish ?


Zone 1 (43cm x 58cm) satellite dish (c/w assembly instructions). LNB not included.

A suitable V bolt (2.5 inch) is required to install this dish on a mast (up to 2" in diameter).

Suitable for Sky and/or Freesat.

Zone 2 (56cm x 75cm) satellite dish (c/w assembly instructions). LNB not included.

Can only be mounted on a pole up to 1.25" in diameter, not without fabricating your own mounting plate and using a pair of 2" V bolts anyway !

Suitable for Sky and/or Freesat.

Sky approved Quad (4 output) LNB.

Also suitable for Freesat.

Typical noise figure of 0.6dB, it`s (probably) not 0.2dB.....

As supplied this LNB only fits the newer Mk4 Sky type dishes (manufactured since around 2010), if required to fit an older dish a legacy adapter is needed.


The four F connectors required are included in the price,

and they`re decent ones !

Make sure your LNB has a long enough weathershield !

For this product the P&P is cheaper

if you phone the order through !

Quad (4 outlet) LNB Mk 3 zone 1 satellite dish LNB mounting adapter

Legacy adapter


This adapter is required to allow a Quad LNB to fit an older (usually pre 2010) Mk3 Sky dish.


We also have some adapters to fit the even older type dishes requiring a 23mm x 11mm spigot, please phone for these.


For this product the P&P is cheaper

Those in the UK needing to pay extra carriage should read this……..


NOTE : any carriage supplement does not count towards the £50 or £100 thresholds for carriage discount. Thus, if adding on the carriage supplement takes the total over one of those thresholds (and the system then automatically reduces the carriage), you must add it back on again by increasing the supplement to compensate !
