The external aerial solved our motorhome radio reception woes.
User Review( votes)
This one is often a puzzle for many a ‘vanner – motorhome radio reception. The very design of the motorhome, often with the Luton bunk above the driving cab may well be the cause of some of the issues affecting motorhome radio reception. Some motorhomes have no problem with radio reception, others seem to be cursed. I have to admit that my previous Compass Avantgarde and then the three former Kon-tikis (am I really on Kontiki number four?) have all been as good as gold when tuning into Radio 2. The newcomer however, seemed a different kettle of fish. Whilst local stations were perfect, reception for Ken Bruce on Radio 2 was shocking. However, some might call it a blessing.
Motorhome radio reception – dealer fitted
The fitting of an external aerial – above – seems to have solved all my problems in respect of motorhome radio reception. Listening to Radio 2 i s a pleasure once more! My investigations reveal that the aerial could be fitted to the near side of the cab. Within Great Britain, the near side is the left hand side of the cab. This is the opposite to the right hand drive steering wheel. I am not sure why the preferred location of the aerial is on the near side. However, the near side it is – fully functional.
I had the aerial professionally fitted.
