The signal srength on my pace twin is between 38 and 50 % depending on which channels the tuners are on . I can only assume that this is poor , but i have not bothered about it because the picture on my panasonic 32 crt is fab on most of the channels. I have just ordered a philips 9986 32" ( stop laughing ) and the ones i looked at were not in the same league as my crt using a sky feed ( brill on dvd though ) . So to get to the point would i be wise to invest in a decent ariel know as the philips will no doubt show up any short commings. Phew ! ps what signal stengths are you getting ?
