If you are talking about TV reception - it is good in the Riverland with both analogue and digital signals.

You can purchase a TV aerial / antenna suitable for use when camping from stores such as dick smith and tandy. Also from caravan stores stocking caravan accessories.
Life's great and it just keeps getting better

The correct spelling is "aerial". Sorry, but I have had enough of those that make posts on this forum that do not have the decency not to denegrate the english language with bad grammar and even worse spelling.

Why do you want TV when you are camping, isn't that why people go camping, to get away from it all?

english???? I think it should be English...

quote "people go camping, to get away from it all"
Who gets to determine the definition of "all"?
"All" for one person could be different to another.
People go camping for their own reasons.

I have seen NP camp grounds packed tighter than the MCG. Those people simply drove a couple of hours, moved from house to tent and took half the neighbourhood with them. To me that was not camping. To the 500 people at the NP camp ground it was.

We tried a few different antenna's.
Best one we came across was the Explorer RV.
Take a look at www.explorer-rv.com.au

There aint no free lunch. If you're in a bad reception area then the only thing that will help is antenna gain and height, gain means large antennas don't expect that miracle hockey stick to perform as advertised and suck a good signal out of nowhere. Height, well get it up as high as possible, climb to the top of a river red gum if you have to. If you have a small noisy signal at the antenna then that booster will only give you a large noisy signal at the TV...not much help at all. Best advice if you want to watch tele in the bush then spend a few bucks on a sat setup.

hi, i fully agree about why do i need tv in the bush, but this is for a different reason, my son is flying the nest and is heading to the riverland to do fruit picking (at least he's getting off the sony play station) he is going to stay on fruit blocks in his caravan, as he hasn't got much $$ yet we were wondering about making an aerial. I have seen a plan but can't find it. sorry about the spelling of aerial before, noticed it as he pressed submit, too late then.

no appology or or explanation is required.

the "all members must be able type and spell perfectly" forum and the "you must explain in detail the what, where, why, when and how of every question you ask" forum are on another site somewhere else.
