For decent TV reception without a struggle, a signal finder is your best bet. This combined unit from Fringe Electronics will help you find the strongest signal, whether using an aerial or satellite dish. Simply connect the aerial lead to the finder and turn your aerial until the LED display lights up. The greater amount of lights lit up indicates a stronger signal.

This model has 12 lights for increased sensitivity and it also beeps as the signal becomes stronger. It is pricier than other units on the market, but if you are an avid telly addict you’ll be pleased with its speedy results. The finder comes complete with clear instructions and a 9V battery.
