Recommendation for TV aerial installation in Canberra?

By Ringer - 14 November 2013 27

Hi,

I recently moved in to a property.

While I was wondering why the TV has no signal, I found out that the previous owner has removed the TV aerial.

So I need to find someone to fit the TV antenna.

Does anyone know any reasonable priced and reliable services in Belconnen? Thanks a lot!

Palmers are very good. Replaced my aerial a few months ago, reasonable price and good service in this known tricky area (with Simpson’s Hill in the way of the repeater). Highly recommended.

Out of curiosity, where in Belco? We have almost line of sight with Black Mountain and still have problems getting signal, especially with windy weather. I think the new digital transmission is pathetic compared to the old analog, which never wavered in the shadow of a dark storm cloud on the horizon.
Rabbit ears? Seriously? Where do you hang them when your plasma sits on the wall?
Ringer, you may find that the antennas are a bit pricey, so I suggest seeing if the Green Shed might have a spare one in their yard. Mine is a second hand piece found from a “throw out” pile, with a couple of bits missing, but still works a treat. Better than paying $40-$100. Install is easy if the cable is up on the roof, as long as there is a bracket. If you aren’t keen on DIY, then go with some of the recommendations here though.

Surely rabbit ears would be fine in most areas of Canberra?

Just do it yourself. Seriously, it really is simple.

Okay, you may need to feed the cable through a small hole somewhere and then climb on your roof to fit it, but it’s nothing.

Seriously, don’t re-shackle yourself to the mass media mind control.

When we moved house, our aerial was broken too. As we had other priorities at the time, fixing it was down the end of the to-do list After a couple of months we realised a) we weren’t bored out of our brains, b) our lives were not emptier by not keeping up with who was doing what to whom (fictional or in reality) c) we actually spent a lot of extra time to doing interesting things we had been wanting to do for ages, and d) our lives were much more flexible when not tied to the TV program schedule.

No one asked for your hipster bulls***, they asked who will best fix the aerial.

The domestic VCR (or better) has been around for about 35 years. Nobody needs to be “tied to a TV program schedule” anymore.

Detlev did ours – very happy.

I’ve used Canberra Communications twice to have additional internal aerial points connected up to the aerial on the roof. No complaints about the service – they were quick, cleaned up after themselves and tested the TV to make sure everything was working as it should.

I think they are at Chisholm but they do service Belconnen – 02 6161 1555

+1 Kaz. Maybe not the cheapest by professional

Kaz Electronics did our place a few months ago. They were very quick and did a great job.

i found jims to be quite good….reliable, did the job quickly and without mess/fuss and were right on their estimated quote

there may be cheaper people around, but they were good

Did they leave the cabling in the wall? If they did then it’s not too hard to just connect your own antenna.
