Installation Basics - Radio

Many cases of perceived interference are actually a direct result of a poor quality or damaged installation. For trouble-free reception of radio – analogue or digital – a good installation is essential.


You are responsible for the quality and condition of your receiving equipment. Before looking at other possible causes you should check your equipment and connections to ensure they are working correctly. A local CAI approved aerial installer would be able to give your system a health-check. 

If you live in a building with a communal aerial system, you should contact your landlord for help
