Wright's Aerials

Albert's Attic Gallery

The late 1970s and early 1980s saw the UK aerial manufacturing industry face serious competition from Europe for the first time. These pages show Fuba, Stolle, and Plemi aerials sold here in the ’80s. Some of the European firms didn’t seem to have done their homework in the early days, with some of the aerials they sent us being slightly unsuitable for the British market. Frequency coverage didn’t always correspond to UK channel groups, connectors didn’t always suit British coax, and the aerials didn’t always suit the British weather. Eventually though the manufacturers got the problems sorted out and aerials from the EEC now take a large part of the market.

I hope firms like Antiference and Blake are exporting to Europe at the same rate.
