Types of indoor antennas for digital TV

The indoor TV signal receiver has only the feature that is mounted indoors. Different models have different power ratings: the lower this figure, the closer the antenna should be placed to the TV. There are several types of indoor signal receivers:

  1. Active. Indoor antenna for digital TV, equipped with a special signal amplifier. It is used in rooms located far from the tower, as well as in the case when the signal needs to be divided into several TVs. The advantage is that it is powered from an outlet rather than from a TV – hence, such an antenna can be placed anywhere.
  2. Passive. Conventional antenna without amplifier. Has an attractive design. Connects directly to the TV. The disadvantage is that the device does not adjust to the signal level, on the contrary, you will have to look for a place in the room where it is better, and install the TV with the antenna there.
  3. All-wave (hybrid). It receives both meter and decimeter broadcasting waves, which, if necessary, can be switched (from one to another).
  4. Meter. The simplest antenna with antennae for adjustment. Their design is simple, and the signal is picked up only at a close distance from the tower.
  5. Decimeter. Provides excellent signal transmission at a distance of 30 km.

Selection criteria – what to look for when choosing an indoor antenna for a “digit”

Indoor antennas for digital TV are inexpensive pleasure. Their cost does not exceed 1000 rubles. Most of the models are presented in an interesting external design, so some tend to focus on this factor first, and only then consider the technical characteristics. To choose a suitable model, you need to pay attention to the following criteria:

  1. Antenna’s ability to receive decimeter waves (UHF, UHF) is the main parameter that should be taken into account. Digital broadcasting is carried out precisely in the decimeter range.
  2. Possibility of receiving DVB-T2 signal . This is an indicator of the standard by which Russian digital television broadcasts.
  3. Amplifier power . This criterion is selected taking into account the remoteness of the room in which the antenna will hang from the television center. The further you go, the more powerful the receiver should be. The minimum power indicator is 30-40 dB.
  4. Passive or active power supply . In the first case, the antenna will be connected directly to the TV and receive electricity from it. It is economical and aesthetically pleasing. The active signal receiver is powered from a separate socket.
  5. Ability to catch FM waves . Standard digital broadcasting provides 20 TV channels and 3 radio stations. Not all antennas are capable of picking up radio waves.
  6. Is there a signal amplifier included . This complementary element will be useful for those who live on the outskirts of a city or in a village where the signal strength is weak.

The selection criteria are simple, the most important thing is to correctly assess the remoteness of your apartment from the TV center.

    Живу в дачном поселке, рядом с лесом, сигнал не очень хороший, а если точнее, то вообще практически никакой. Перепробовала ни одну антенну, то каналы пропадают, то помехи постоянные, до тех пор, пока знакомые не посоветовали Blackmor DVB-T2-711C. Качество приема замечательное, ловит во всех уголках дома. По цене приемлема, радует то, что антенна очень компактная, ее можно поставить в любое удобное место, она не занимает много пространства.

    Метровую антенну порекомендую лишь тем, кто в мегаполисе. Однажды приобрели такую на дачу, как только ни крутили, идеального качества изображения не поймали. Зафиксировали антенну в том положении, когда картинка была лучше всего, и то радость продлилась недолго. К вечеру разгулялся ветер, так весь экран пошел рябью. Затем приобрели антенну на подставке, со встроенным усилителем, и другое дело – никакие погодные неурядицы уже не влияют на ловлю сигнала. Так что на даче, особенно отдаленной от города, без усилителя никак.

    раньше,когда мы жили в городе, у нас была большая спутниковая антенна на крыше дома. сейчас живем за городом и решили приобрести такую комнатную антенну. брали не особо дорогую, каналов 30-40 ловит. в принципе довольны всем, да и если помехи какие-то, то можно вручную исправить, а не лезть на крышу. довольно удобная вещь для дачников, к тому же несложная настройка-можно справиться без вызова мастера

    Диапазонные антенны используются там, где нужно принимать только МВ, или только ДМВ. В частности, для вещания цифрового эфирного телевидения в России применяется только ДМВ-диапазон.
