I use a small digital antenna, only US11, all signal strength is 95% very good even without powered. It can be powered with 12V if your signal area is weak.



Just stick to the outside wall, the wire provided is very long about 4-5m.

Putting the DIY antenna on practical...

Near the window facing towards Bukit Timah Hill (where transmitter originates)


Scanning and detecting succeed!


Crisp and clear image!


This is the Signal Strength and Quality even when the window is SHUTTED!


You don't actually need to buy any Margon, Amazon, Leaf, etc.. powered antenna to achieve this!

Some additional info: Home locates in Sengkang Compassvale, living on top floor. Signal is very strong and even penetrates way over into the middle of my bedroom where this TV situates. Old DVB-T signal can't even does that!

Hi bro kinki you have to use an indoor antenna, or the Playon! Booster Antenna. Connecting to wall jack (SCV) will not get you the DVB-T2 channels.
Bro, I tried this already but it's worst than when I plugged into the older type wall jack... I totally cant get any signal with the antenna and booster!!! Someone help!!! Acryan's technical helpdesk not that helpful and friendly though...

OK. Finally a 15 meters Belden antenna does the job pulling the signal from one side of my HDB to another where my 42" TV is.

Now I can really see the Glee concert in full HD on the big screen so clear and sharp. Nice!
15metres antenna?


you mean the cable 15metres or the span of the antenna is 15metres?

socket part (that black black thing) is called Balun Transformer. Should be around $1-$1.50. I bought some from Sim Lim Square 3rd floor UF Tech.

Can't buy the Balun transformer any longer from UF Tech in SLS... any idea where else I can get one? I asked a few shops in SLT even the one I made cables from and they don't carry it.
