How to receive MUX-8?

In the case when the current antenna installation does not allow reception of the VHF range, it will be necessary to extend it with a new VHF antenna and summation of signal from all antennas. Before buying a new antenna

however, it is worth checking the current antenna installation, correcting all connections, or adjusting the direction of the antenna, if at a short distance from the transmitter, where the signal is strongest, you can find satisfactory reception without adding a new antenna.

In many regions, MUX-8 will be transmitted in vertical polarization, so before selecting and installing the antenna pay attention to the polarization of the signal that we intend to receive.

Information about the recommended direction of reception and the parameters of the transmitted signal at the planned collection point can be found, among others using the EmiMaps application. Our Guidebooks can also help in choosing the antenna.

When choosing an antenna, always follow the following rules:

There are no universal antennas. The antenna is selected for a specific location and signal parameters,

which we plan to receive. In the case of MUX-8, the signal polarization is also important.

Avoid the room and panel antennas, in addition to some locations close to broadcasting facilities, they do not provide stable reception.

We do not suggest marketing descriptions. There are no “digital”, “DVB-T” or “HDTV” antennas, these and similar subtitles are just marketing treatments that have nothing to do with the quality of the product.

Too large, often strongly displayed on the packaging, the value of dB, dBi very often results

from the amplifier used (not always good quality), not the gain of the antenna itself.

If possible, avoid antenna amplifiers. Strengthening the amplifier is not the same as making the antenna gain. Badly selected (for local conditions) amplifier worsens signal parameters.
