    Default TV reception Portishead marina

    We get varying degrees of success getting a tv picture on the boat in Portishead
    We currently use a domestic type aerial temporarily sat on the Flybridge
    This weekend I plan to remove the track vision satellite dome and replace with a permanent TV aerial installation, anyone have any recommendations on something that will work in this poor signal area?

    Dunno if the WiFi is good enough for it, but iPlayer has live streaming I believe... there might be Internet options for other channels too.

    Hi Ian, We have a directional caravan aerial with a signal booster which works well in most places. When we come across to Portishead it very much depends on which berth they allocate us. Normally they put us on 'B' hammerhead and we always manage to get a good signal. The last time we bumped into you we were on 'H' leg and we struggled to get a signal that worked on all channels. I'm guessing this is due to the amount of buildings around the marina ???

    I tried several aerials when we were berthed in Portishead, never found one that picked up more than 4 channels reliably.

    I guess I'd better stick to my "lash up" then, at least I get a good signal but would rather have something more permanent

    Our reception was rubbish at Portishead Iain. Pretty good everywhere else. I put it down to the surrounding high rise blocks. Andrew on His Azi Volante uses a Sat receiver with some success. Have a look at Maplins, as the supply at a reasonable cost.
