With the new digital TV aerial now electronically aligned with our spectrum analyser we started running our customer’s coax cable to their sitting room.  Once tacked down and entering our customer’s sitting room we once again plugged in our meter to take another reading to install the correct attenuator to ensure our customer’s equipment was not getting overloaded with our signal.  We re-tuned their YouView receiver and TV and started packing away.  Our ladders were fully extended and needed to lowered and put back on the roof of the van. We had a walk around to ensure we hadn’t left any rubbish, tape, cable ties etc. and then wrote our bill and headed back to the ice-cold van for a rewarding blast of cold air!  Call me direct for your New Digital TV Aerial 07916 305 977  Andy
