Recommendation for TV aerial installation in Canberra?

By Ringer 14 November 2013 27


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!

Hi Mate,

We just moved to a new property in Bonner and am not very good with Tools, hence had to get some one to get the TV mounted on the wall.

Had contacted, who did the needful. They did mention that they provide TV anatenna installation etc. However the builder had already covered this aspect for us. They did have a check as the signals were not very good and advised that there was some loose cable hanging in the roof which they fixed it.

Good mob, would surely recommend you to have a chat with them.

My 2 cents.

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

All depends really. If the mast and cable are still there, then yes not too hard. But if the mast is also gone then that can be a nightmare if you don’t know what you are doing.

Any no don’t work for an antenna installing company.

Nah, putting a mast in is equally simply. Bolt it to a barge board at the end of the house and there you go. You can even make your own mast if you so feel inclined.

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

Yeh, there are two outlets. The problem is where I am doesn’t have good reception. Not sure if a standard antenna would work well. I might have to install a split system antenna. Better to get it done professionally.

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


I use them in Belco, but they’re not reliable – certainly not as good as a rooftop antenna. Different channels can need a different orientation, and sometimes something as simple as my wife walking into the kitchen can cause the signal to go to crap. They’re usable, but right on the verge of not being good enough.

Have you considered doing the cooking and washing up instead of your wife?


I presumed his wife walked into the kitchen while he was doing the dishes.
