Occasionally i get asked to remove an aerial because it is no longer required or it is in danger of falling due to its age and condition.
While i had my ladders set up i was asked if i could install some chimney cowls to stop rain making the chimney wet internally and also to stop birds dropping twigs into and flying down in to the house.
It is not always possible to re use an old aerial due to the deterioration over time the aerial could have been up for more than ten years.
In this case i was able to use the existing aerial to retain the signal they already had and add a new aerial to give reception at a second location, It was not practical to split the signal due to less than adequate signal level.
The Building was in keeping with its surroundings, they required the signal in two places, luckily enough the strength was good enough to split with excellent results.They can watch Freeview, BT TV, EE TV or YouView without interruption.
