The owners of the explorer-rv brand of caravan TV antenna have been in the business of collecting signals for pictures for more than 50 years. We delivered product for black and white RV TV antenna systems, colour TV caravan antenna systems, digital caravan antenna systems and have designed and manufactured a range of product for both the home, commercial and caravan market. One of the products that has proven very successful is our through-the-wall caravan TV connection which are sold to manufacturers and are the prime reason our caravan TV systems work so well.
So many companies offering solutions for caravan TV antenna pay little attention to the pathway the signal will travel – but like the tap is related to the hose – if the antenna is not connected correctly the water escapes and signal behaves in exactly the same way – it escapes through the poor connection.
The major error made is most of the industry treat radio signals known as RF or TV signals like electricity. It is not electricity and does not have an infinite supply. It has a precise amount of energy- power and this changes in every new location inc. moving your antenna just a metre. In fact it can change in an instant: weather, items in the environment, your body, all effect the amount of energy being delivered to the TV set.
The influences mentioned in the earlier paragraph do not matter when there is sufficient signal but when signals are borderline it can be the difference between a good TV picture and none at all.
