I have a friend wishing to purchase an antenna for his caravan. I have a foldaway T style antenna with a 34db ampliflier and it works OK and is great for storage etc, but I am sure there are better. The Explorer, Dome in particular come to mind.

I would be interested in what you use, your evaluations of it and its approximate cost.

I was at the Longeronong Motor Home rally & the Saturn Omni at $359 was on a display stand.
Its a round multidirectional unit bit like a gold detector coil with power booster & cable
Anyone have any fringe area experience with these???

You could also mention to your friend that an inexpensive standard definition set top box such as the Wintal also provides a great picture. The digital signal is either great or none at all, so when purchasing an antenna, keep in mind one that also provides for digital signals. Although most digital signals can be picked up on a lot of analogue type antenna. Remember of course that digital signals are transmitted only from main regional centres and details can be obtained on the digital broadcast forum................
