WE HAVE GOT YOU COVERED IN AUSTRALIA * 601 broadcasting sites. * 2,857 digital transmitters. * All cities and towns in QLD, NSW, ACT, VIC, TAS, SA, WA and NT where digital terrestrial television is available*** WE HAVE GOT YOU COVERED IN NEW ZEALAND * 35 broadcasting sites. * 344 transmitters * All cities and towns in the North and South Islands where digital terrestrial television is available**** WE HAVE GOT YOU COVERED IN THE UNITED KINGDOM * 1,151 broadcasting sites. * 3,698 digital transmitters. * All cities and towns in England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Channel Islands where digital terrestrial television is available***** HOW DOES IT WORK? Using your current location, your device's compass, and the target site's effective radiated power, Antenna Mate instantly estimates the signal strength of all nearby sites and automatically plots a bearing to the best one**. Under normal circumstances you should get an initial result within seconds. The longer you leave Antenna Mate open, the more accurate it will become. For best results use Antenna Mate outside in an open space and away from objects which cause interference. Antenna Mate doesn't need an internet connection, that's one of the reasons why it's so fast. DETAILED TRANSMITTER INFO Complete listings of all digital terrestrial transmitters are available at each site. Listings include the callsign, frequency (MHz), channel, polarisation, and effective radiated power (kW). ALL SITES BY STRENGTH OR DISTANCE Prefer to align your TV antenna with another broadcasting site? No worries! Sites can be listed from strongest to weakest, or closest to furthest away. Pick any site from the list and Antenna Mate instantly plots a new bearing to the targeted site. Using an amplifier or high gain antenna? You can increase the search radius up to 200 km (120 mi) from your current location. LIGHT AND DARK DISPLAY SWITCHING When your device is in direct sunlight Antenna Mate will automatically switch to a light display making the arrow easy to see. Perfect for performing an alignment during the middle of the day. USE IT UPSIDE DOWN, OR THE RIGHT WAY UP Antenna Mate is smart enough to know when your device is being held upside down, or the right way up. Either way, it will always point to the targeted site. SUPPORT AND FEEDBACK We would love to hear your feedback or help you troubleshoot. Send an e-mail to [email protected] or tweet @antennamate.

Actual field strength will be lower. Closest broadcasting site is measured by estimating distance using line of sight. Distance is only an approximation. *** Based on Australian Communications and Media Authority data. **** Based on Radio Spectrum Management and OpenStreetMap data. ***** Based on Ofcom data.
