A damp and cold Thursday morning and our 1st call of the day South Benfleet, when we arrived our customers had Sky in their sitting room which was working fine but the TV’s around the house was not getting good pictures, and suffering picture freezing and break-up. I connected my spectrum analyser and looked at the signal; I instantly knew their distribution amplifier was faulty as I could see the fault on my screen.  I went up into my customer’s loft and looked at their distribution amplifier which was feeding 6 TV points.  I disconnected the main aerial feed and took some signal readings with my spectrum analyser and was not too happy with the base signal my customer’s aerial was providing to the broken distribution amplifier.

I reported back to my customer they needed their distribution amp replacing and stated the signal form the aerial could be improved, they told me their aerial was extremely old and was happy to have it replaced along with the distribution amp.  I climbed on their roof and cut-down their old aerial along with their chimney cradle, I took up a heavy duty 13” 5 brick course chimney cradle and lashed the chimney stack getting a fantastic fitting.  Knowing the signal strengths we put a log-periodic w/b aerial onto an 8ft 1” ½ alloy mast which will support the aerial for years and years to come.  I was delighted with the performance of the log aerial and run the new coax cable into my customer’s loft.

Once in the loft we removed the old distribution amp and replaced it with one of our 8ways giving our customers a couple of extra ports, just in case they require extra TV points in the future.  We changed our customer’s coax ends going into our new amp from coax to F’ which is more of a modern connection, and easier to fit.  We checked our customer’s TV points and re-tuned their TV’s and in every case our customer was over the moon with the brilliant TV pictures.  We packed away and made sure we had cleared up every tac, cable tie and every piece of rubbish leaving our customer’s property how we found it when we arrived.  We wrote our bill and programmed the sat-nav to our next call.
