Click here for a topic previous, though its an internal aerial, it out-performs most outdoor aerials, and I've recommended it to many peeps over the years, and never had anyone say it did'nt meet their needs. It was rater top, by a good margin, in the Ricability indoor-aerial tests they performed for Digital TV UK, scoring 96% overall (funnily enough, the un-amplified version was the second best, with 88%).

If it does you, it will be far far cheaper than an outdoor aerial and installation. If not, send it back and go for an outdoor one.

I am not too keen on indoor aerials I am located in a weak signal area - hence why I keep picking up Wales stations such as BBC1Wales etc instead of England!

I rather take recommendations from people who do know what they are talking about, which of course Matt does, so I may look into it as my outdoor aerials keeps picking up Wales.

Agree Paul,i have had three aerials put up outdoors,all have gone wrong when it rains or when its windy,but with the indoor one i pick up more stations and no picture break up.

Best of all it was under £20 delivered!

Incase you have not yet bought it online, I saw in Asda a few days ago, that they are selling these for £17 - ideal if you need an aerial, but not sure if this will do the biz for you - if not, less hassle to take it back and get a refund.
