hi all, a few months back I asked which was the best antenna and best response was the happy wanderer, but I just need to clarify is this digital or analogue, and which do we need now, what do you all use out the back blocks , is analogue going to be useless in the near future

Will pick up both

Same as you dont need a different aerial at home to pick up digital.

Only difference is in outback towns you may have to shift it to vertical polarity.

Look at the local houses to find out direction and polarity

Woops pushed wrong button

Its the tuner that defines whether you can get digital or not.

Some Tv's are digital ready and some are not.

If yours isnt you may need a set top box that is Digital capable.

Check out the Happy Wanderer site here for answers to your questions.
Analogue will be phased out by 2013 and has already occurred in some areas.
In the back blocks the best system is VAST satellite TV. This has all digital channels and is now available for travellers.

Im using the happy wanderer and yes it does the digital perfectly (we now only have digital where I am)
To the best of my knowledge you only need to set it horizontally for digital
A good investment is the booster which I found to work really well in out of the way places
The booster is a grey box thingy available from dick smith for $99
Its made for the happy wanderer

In areas where there is no tv reception sat system works for me Optus aurora still ok up until 2013 Im told then just a matter of getting a new decoder and card for digital vast system and im informed that upgrade will cost $299
