While camping on the Murray River in 46 degree heat in the shade our TV lost signal.
Tried to scan for signal, but nothing.
Came home and tested TV on house ariel and worked OK.
How do I find the problem? Any help appreciated.
Thanks Hugh

Hi Bush Camper. The booster (I think that is what it is called) in the antenna head can die and would need to be replaced, or you can replace the head. Disk Smith did sell them under previous ownership.
