    Aerial colour guide info

    Aerial Specialists

    Could you briefly explain to me what the aerial colour guide is and when will it matter to know?

    "TV aerial colour codes denote the frequency or channel numbers an aerial will be able to receive.

    These Matter as an incorrect aerial for your transmitter could exclude some of the available channels.

    21-37 A Red
    35-53 B Yellow
    48-68 C/D Green
    35-68 E Brown
    21-48 K Grey
    21-68 W Black
    21-60 T LTE usually Black

    Probably best to opt for Black 21-68 or a Group T 21-60 as this covers the whole range of UK TV channels used. and then for added protection choose an aerial with LTE which excludes the 4G mobile phone frequencies especially important if amplifiers are used within the system..

    Hope this helps, Paul"

    Example Group A is Red. An aerial with a red dot/mark is manufactured to receive signal from group A transmitters"
