Product details

Aerial Attenuator 6dB

If your TV picture displays "herringbone" patterns or your FM reception is overloaded with distortion, the signal may be too strong. These attenuators reduce the signal strength to correct these problems. They simply connect in-line with the aerial lead and feature a standard coax socket at one end and a standard coax plug at the other. They have bright aluminium alloy bodies and are suitable for VHF and UHF. They have low VSWR and are clearly marked. Length 45mm (approx).

Iv just had BT TV fitted in the bed room of my flat my TV signal is coming from a communal aerial the signal keeps breaking up would a attenuator make any difference,s

It's impossible to predict if this device would have any effect.

My new aerial has increased my signal level from 68/70 to a steady 80 giving too strong a signal. I need to reduce signal to 75 so which attenuator will achieve this without reducing signal strength below 75 ?

Asked by: Richard
This should reduce your signal to around 74, so should be suitable for your needs.

Do I need a 6db or 12db?

Asked by: SJK60
This would be down to you to decide as it would depend on the signal strength you receive.

Problems with Freeview, bad picture breakup or loss of signal, for all BBC SD channels, all apparently at the same frequency; other channels, including BBC HD are all clear. Can you say please, if this likely to help e.g. if signal is too strong.

Asked by: MikeB
It could do, but it can also happen if its too weak.

my BT vision box had to be changed: the engineer advised aerial strength needed to be attenuated: is it fair to guess which attenuator to buy?"

No, you would need a signal booster.
