Hi and welcome to the Matchmaster tutorial on how to find the perfect antenna suited for your area and where to find one.
To begin, click on the antenna selection guide or type in www.matchmaster.tv. There, you will find the homepage of the antenna selection guide. We are going to take you through step-by-step on what to do.
Firstly, please type in the address that requires the antenna. It can be your house, an apartment or commercial property. When typing in the address, a tab will pop open underneath, please click on the correct address. There are four basic questions below, for this example we are going to be using these. Question 1: how many outlets required? Today let’s go with 4 outlets. One in the lounge, two in the bedroom and one in the kitchen. Do you live in an apartment? No. Is satellite pay tv required? Let’s go no. Are any FM outlets required? No. Click the find antenna button.
This will take you to a summary page of your recommended antenna. Today we have the 03MM-DC21V. As you scroll down, you will see the picture and basic specs, the installation diagram, the required parts list and your nearest wholesalers.
You will notice on the right hand side of the wholesalers, you have one or two options. Enquire now, which allows you to send the parts list to your selected wholesaler or a buy now button that instantly adds the parts list to the wholesales online shopping cart.
To find the direction to point the antenna, when installing, please check transmitter details and on the map, the red line will show you which transmitter to point towards to get the best reception.
Once finished viewing this page, simply download it as a PDF or you can email the report to yourself. Also, if you would like to modify your selected antenna, you can change it by clicking on alternate antennas at the top of the page, which will recommend other antennas for your area.
For further information, please give us a call on 1800-AREIAL or visit out website matchmaster.com.au. Thanks for watching.
Hello and welcome to Matchmaster, for the best.
Today, I will be taking you through the setup of the 01MM-DC21A, here is what it looks like fully constructed. This antenna we recommend for most metropolitan and sub-regional areas.
It’s a favourite of ours, mainly for its snap lock elements and its heavy duty construction, what make it stand out is its X type dipole, f type diplexing system and dual reflector for multi path rejection.
The DC21A also features a built in 652MHz low pass 4G LTE filter for reduced interference
Okay, let’s get started.
The first thing you want to do, is twist and snap out the corner reflectors and twist the lower reflector down.
Then, connect the G unit to the boom, then secure with the washer and wing nut.
Connect the two booms together using the screws supplied.
And attach the x type dipole onto the black saddle.
Make sure the two f type connectors are facing the back of the antenna. With the cable supplied, screw the connector to the output of the VHF balun and slide the rubber boot over. If you look on top of the UHF balun you will see output and input. Make sure you connect to the VHF link to the input.
Insert the U-bolt through the nest and slide it into the boom and through the bracket. Use the washers and nuts supplied to hold it all together.
Bolt the antenna onto your mast.
Now that you’ve completed constructing the DC21A, connect your antenna cable and point it to the nearest TV transmitter. To find out where your local TV transmitter is, go to matchmaster.tv or give us a call on 1800-AERIAL.
Thanks for watching.
