We also need recommendations for a Freeview aerial installer. We have an UHF aerial on the roof, but it's pointing up towards the sky instead of horizontal and I don't want to climb up on the roof myself. Anyone have a recommendation for East Auckland?

Not sure if CoffeeBaron just does phone & internet installations, he might be able to help you with this.

Thanks, I contacted him but he said the aerial is mounted too high. I booked another company and will report back.

Called in Aerial Master. Turned out we had an UHF amp in the roof that we didn't know about, but it was not powered up, so it was attenuating the signal instead of boosting it. The tech removed the filter and all was good. $65+GST for labour plus a few bucks for parts, $78.89 total.
