A little windy for an old aerial.

Got called out to a house in Appledore, Kent today where the aerial was swinging in the wind above a shared access driveway.
Where the aerial had been installed over 30 years ago, oxidation had taken it’s toll on the aerials structure and the wind finished it off.
Upon my arrival, my immediate concern was to make the area safe so nobody was in danger walking under it.
I removed the aerial that was beyond repair and installed a new one on the existing bracketry and mast as this was still good to go.

TV aerial and satellite dish installation & repair throughout south east Kent.




I was called out to a bungalow in Aldington, Kent. The customer had a no signal message displaying on his TV when trying to view.
When I went up in to the loft space I could see that the heating guys had pulled the cable out of a connector and wrapped the cable around a piece of metal so tightly, that the stinger (centre core) had snapped internally.

I replaced the connectors and some cabling, and he is up and running once again.

He also had a satellite dish that he wanted installed, so I carried out the installation at the same time whilst being supplied with lovely cups of tea. Just as well, as the snow was falling and my hands were very cold!
