Question about Televison & Video
For those who are having problems with reception with these Philips antennas I suggest a possible fix for this. It may be an assembly problem with the phasing wires. I would still blame Philips for the very inadequate assembly instructions. The step in the instructions that tell you to connect the phasing wires from the rear boom (boom B) to the front boom (Boom A) should also state that the phasing wires should cross, but not touch. If you simply connected the phasing wire strait forward, sort of how the picture can be interpreted, you will get very poor performance of the antenna. I bent my phasing wires right at the point they leave the rear boom and then again at the point where the wire already has an S bend. The phasing wire coming from the right on the rear boom (Boom B) connects to the left on the front boom (Boom A). The phasing wire from the left on the rear boom (boom B) connects to the right on the front boom (Boom A). When done and looking from the top the phasing wires will make and X and then pass forward straight to the connections. I am sorry for the lengthy description, but without a picture it takes a lot to describe.
