    Not sure which forum to put this in but anyway, the builders on my house will be bringing a roof ladder later this week which gives me a chance to put up my TV airiel. I have an antiference splitter with 12v DC supply for a masthead amp but Maplin don't have any stock.

    Anyone know of a internet mail order company that I can get an amp from in a hurry (next day delivery)?.

    Would prefer antiference unless anyone has a better suggestion. Also, Maplin sell a 13db and 24db one. Should I get the most powerful? I'm marginal for Freeview although next door gets it fine. I have bought a big Triax hi gain airiel.

    Thanks in advance.

    i visited the antiference stand at the cai trade fair last week and they have just released a new range of fully screaned masthead amps with f connectors which is very important

    if you are using a triax 32 or 52 you will already have a reasonable signal level,what is important with amplifiers is that you dont dont use one to strong or you will overload with signal

    i sugest you contact a cai aerial rigger because you cant guess the signal you need a signal meter to test the levels and fit the correct amps
