Factors to consider in determining the right type of antenna for you
Your Location and Proximity to a Transmission Tower
Different types of antennas best suit residential and commercial areas. This determines if you would require an indoor or outdoor antenna, a high mast or extended mast antenna, and so on. Your proximity to a transmission tower also determines the power needed by your antenna to receive enough signals. This is so it can deliver high-quality pictures and also know if it will require a uni-directional or multi-directional antenna type.
Quality and strength of the signal in your location
Choosing the right antenna for you is also determined by the quality and strength of the signals received in your location. This determines if you require Very High Frequency (VHF) or Ultra High Frequency (UHF) or a combination type of antenna.
The radio frequency signals transmitted by your cable TV antenna are measured in megahertz. If your antenna emits stable signals in high frequencies, then a VHF or a UHF is required. On the other hand, if the frequencies vary, a combiner or splitter may be used instead.
Types of devices connected to your antenna
Taking into consideration the type and model of TV connected to your antenna, as well as the receiver that comes with it. This will also determine if you will be needing a digital or an analogue antenna. Analogue antennas transmit radio frequencies through the airwaves while digital transmission antennas transmit signals in compressed data in the form of digital packets.
Certain models of TV and cable TV receivers may require analogue transmission, others, especially the new models, require digital-type antennas.
The quality of the parts or materials used in your antenna
The quality of the parts of your antenna also determines the durability and efficacy of the antenna in the reception of signals over time. There are different parts of an antenna in every type. But the most common ones are the antenna director, reflector, coaxial base, and the antenna base or antenna stand.
The parts or materials used must be of premium quality that can withstand elements such as extreme heat, strong winds, etc. Otherwise, you’ll have to spend a significant amount of money on maintenance or repairs.
