Satellite installation & Repair Sandringham Norfolk

Are you looking for a new satellite installation, repair or upgrade in Sandringham Norfolk?

Andy’s Aerials have been installing, repairing and upgrading satellites for over 25yrs and have the necessary skills to ensure your satellite signal has every achievable decibel in your location possible. Tall trees and high buildings can prevent a signal being received.  We pride ourselves on neat and discreet installation, treating you property as we would ours, if possible keeping your new or replacement dish out of site, but situated with a good line of sight for a perfect signal, using a standard 54cm zone1 dish we are able to achieve a good signal and hide the dish on your property as much as possible.

A zone 1 satellite dish is needed if you want to receive: Sky Q, Sky HD & Free-Sat.  Free-Sat is a good alternative to Free-View providing over 170 channels, here are 2 links for channels on Free-Sat & Free-View.

What are the parts for a satellite installation?  If you want or need you dish to be chimney mounted, we will attach to your chimney a galvanized chimney cradle using a lashing kit to secure it, (no drilling).  We can then attach your new dish the chimney cradle.  The dish has an L.N.B at the end of the arm where the twin satellite cable connects via F’ connectors, next we run your new cable to the room where your receiver is situated.  Where possible we always use and drainpipes to hide and transport your new cable to the ground, keeping you property looking cable free.  If your property has surrounding tall trees, a chimney installation may be your only option.

If your new dish is to be wall mounted we try to mount your dish high to achieve a good quality signal and a clear line of sight, we may use a standard wall bracket which comes with the dish from the manufacturer, or a galvanized wall bracket of a chosen size to allow your new dish to rotate further on your south facing wall. Again if possible we will aim for a drainpipe to transport your cable to the ground if your equipment is on the ground floor.

All our satellite installations come with a 1yr guarantee , on average the LNB has an average life expectancy of around 7year although I have come across a few which have worked for 20years and has completely astonished me.  Please feel free to call us for a free quotation and advice.  We do not install foreign satellites, hot-bird etc., just Free-Sat Sky Q & Sky HD.  We are happy to attend your property and provide a quote.
