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.

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.
