If you are planning to conduct a do-it-yourself installation of the antenna, make sure that you choose the right one. An outdoor roof-mounted antenna guarantees better reception compared to an indoor antenna. Thus, if you are residing in a place close to the television and not certain that an indoor antenna is good enough, then you should go for it. Otherwise, your choice must be an outdoor antenna. The kind of outdoor antenna you need depends on the channels accessible in your locality. Television channels either have UHF or VHF bands and the outdoor antenna must be based on the kind of channels you and your family members watch mostly.
When the installation is done, adjust the antenna until you have the desired picture and sound quality. Someone staying in front of the TV can help you change the antenna position. When you’ve found the proper positioning snug the bolt so the cable doesn’t swing in the wind.
