Wondering how you go about choosing the best Gold Coast antenna option? The best antenna for your Gold Coast home really depends on where you live and the type of signal you need. The Gold Coast is home to a wide range of house styles, some on the coast, some in the suburbs and some backing onto bushland and national parks – what works in one area of the Gold Coast may not necessarily work in another.
Let’s take a look at some of the top 4 things to keep in mind when discussing a new antenna installation with your repairer.
Size of Antenna
Your distance from the broadcast tower may well determine the size of the antenna you need. The further away from the tower, you may need a larger antenna to ensure you get the signal quality you are after. The size will also be determined on what is around you – if you live in a house in Nerang and state forest is blocking your access to the broadcast tower, you may need to consider a bigger antenna.
When choosing an antenna, you need to keep the signal quality in mind. An antenna that is placed outdoors will always get a better quality signal than one indoors.
How Many Connections
As more people tend to live in high rises, or families grow, there will be a need to run more than one television off the one antenna. Of course, running two or three televisions in the home is very different to running 50 or 60 or more in a high rise, so it is always best to speak with a qualified antenna installer before having an antenna installed so that you know what you need.
This one ties in with the size of the antenna you need, but it also looks at your location and whether you will need any additional parts to ensure a good quality signal.
