They receive the signals quite clearly without any unnecessary interruption. The other two options are the satellite or the terrestrial antennas. The satellite antennas receive the signals from satellite and work with frequencies between 10.95 and 12.75 Hz. Terrestrial antennas support frequencies in the UHF portion.

  1. What is the coverage range of the antenna?

The coverage is extremely important factor. The buyer has to check that which kind of television transmission is there in the region.
