Above Fracarro log-periodic multi-band antennas have a precision design and quality materials for a reasonable price. Years of experience proven these antennas deliver better reception of all TV channels than old large analogue antennas or similar design antennas made in China. These antennas made explicitly for digital TV signals, hence the small size. Italian designed and made specifically for Australia. Suitable for all Sydney suburbs, including North Sydney, Northern Beaches from Manly to Palm Beach.

TV antenna specifications

Front-to-back ratio measures the antenna's ability to receive signals from the desired direction while rejecting signals from the opposite direction. A higher ratio implies better separating signals from interference.

Antenna gainĀ is how well the antenna receives a TV signal. It is measured in dB, a log 10 scale; for example, a 3db difference corresponds to twice as much signal coming to the TV coaxial cable.

Other characteristics go beyond the scope of this popular article, such as the linearity of the amplitude-frequency response and impedance.

other popular TV antennas

Here are a few popular legacy antennas initially designed for analog TV. They are not perfect in weak signal locations. Nevertheless, these antennas are suitable for digital reception in medium to strong signal areas of Sydney Northern Beaches. If you see one on your roof, we can upgrade it to fix issues such as pixelation and missing channels.

Indoor antennas from $5

Indoor rabbit ears antenna may function in locations with perfect reception, which start at just $5 and do not require roof installation. Also, with perfect reception in the location, a cable inserted into the TV antenna socket may work as an antenna. However, with indoor antennas, not all channels may be available or pixelated when you move around the room.
