Any rubbish dump or recycler will have dozens of "scrapped" VHF antennas

Cheapest option is to just replace the damaged part with one of the same length

Yes that will do until the digital changeover. But who knows you said they are elderly? they could be dead by then. Best not to waste money on a new tv or STB until nearer the time.

My Grandmother purchased her 1st VCR at age 85 and learnt how to use and program it to record her shows while she was at Bingo. Don't rule out the oldies as being unable to cope with technology!

I thought TV2 was mostly in Band III so would 'big, tall, long' be relevant to that section.

I'd have thought it was for Band I section.

If you are in Hamilton I can help you - I've got a shed full of old broken TV aerials!

Cheers, Wild Bill.
