Rated 5 out of 5 by from very efficient and good value Purchased this directional antenna for use with a caravan in an area of poor reception and found it worked extremely well. The antenna is very light, compact and of good quality, being directional allows for better reception The two way amplifier (MP-001)included allows for two televisions to be connected and works very well, the amplifier has to be connected to a 12v supply (not provided) and should be undertaken by a competent person. This antenna is very efficient and good value and would recommend.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't buy it We bought this to use on a narrowboat in Cheshire, however it failed to recieve any signal on the search. Neighbouring boats had no problem getting a signal. We increased the height of the aerial to 3 meters, but this made no difference. Fuse blew in the cigarette power supply for the signal amplifier when turned to full.

What is the purpose of Item 3 power supply MP-001. A previous question answer was “ The amplifier is inbuilt and is passive so no power supply is needed, or provided”. Is it a power supply for the aerial or a signal amplifier? or attenuator?

Asked by: Alan
It is a signal amplifier (2way) the other FAQ was answered incorrectly and I've rectified this too.

Can this be fitted on a campervan roof or inside the bulk head and is there a fixing bracket to fix to a roof rack  Regards Stewart 

Asked by: Lost
Typically the device would be pole mounted, the bracket at the rear of the device has two threaded bolts and is held in place on the pole via a retaining bar with wingnuts (similar to how a u-bolt clamp works)
