I switched the old decades old Russian indoor antenna today to a new antenna, ANT 100 by König Electronics. Although it needs be fully amplified to have as good abilities as the old one(but it indeed has if amplified, tested it with a Koeru analog transmitter 93 km's away on E39), it is otherwise working fine, even if watching DVB-T(reception is actually better if to believe Signal strength reading) unless you stand in front at the antenna. Well, it is picking up audio better on the weaker signals than the old one, even heard audio on Latvian channel LTV1 (E33, transmitted at Valmiera) rather well although picture was almost non-existent(in PAL, you are not supposed to hear any sound during very weak signal). So I guess that I will stick around with this one. Although it needs to have amplifier switched on, it does its job just fine. Now I can't wait until next tropo...
