It's neither Vertical or Horizontal polarity because there isn't a transmitter on Waiheke Island

Actually they do a low power infill on Waiheke that should reach some Eastern Suburbs.

It is Vertical like Sky Tower etc.

You can pull down the coverage map from here - http://www.freeviewnz.tv/coverage.aspx

Ahh I stand corrected, I didn't realise they had deployed a site there as part of the 87% coverage deployment.

Thanks for that - according to my TV I get only 59% signal strength connected straight to the aerial ? to boost the signal would you recommend a masthead amp or can you use those splitter amps?
