Rogues Gallery

We return here to a familiar theme. It seems that some installers don’t know the first thing about their job. If they don’t know how to assemble a basic yagi array what do they know? How to drink the tea with one hand and write the invoice with the other I suppose.

This example does at least have the virtue of symmetry, with the longest elements at the ends. Maybe the installer was an arts graduate. This installation was in a poor reception area for TV in South Yorkshire. The installer had correctly used Belmont for TV, but had also pointed the two radio aerials at the same transmitter. The best radio reception from both aerials was in fact from the Crosspool transmitter, which was well off beam.
