Make the rods of the rabbit's ears horizontal and extend equally. The total length tip to tip should be 740 mm. Rotate the antenna so that it is at right angles to a line between it and Mt Cooth-tha as a starting point. Putting the antenna closest to a window particularly on the west or south will also help.
I should add that the loop is only used for channel "31" which will stop transmitting at the end of the year according to the Minister for Communications. As a result you only need an antenna consisting of the rods only. http://www.dicksmith...enna-dsau-l4011 is much cheaper but may not get ch31
Thanks for your tutoring. I was able to get 25 channels.
But, unfortunately it only works if I put it near the window in the sitting room. In my room, I can only get a 31 Digital channel. There are only 2 windows in my room, one faces to South another faces to East. While sitting room has the a window which faces to West.
I expected to receive at least dozens of channels from my room, turns out I am navie. In spite of that, it proved that in this house I can receive channels if the antenna is set up in place.
I will return the antenna to Bunnings and probably will buy a Coxial cable like this:
Because there are 2 TV wall sockets in the house. One is in sitting room, another is in master room. I think I would need to run the cable from master room rather from sitting room as it is shorter, about 7 meters. I wasn't willing to do this as I worry the the cable might stumble housemates...
I wonder will the distance attenuates the signal? Should I get an amplifier?
