Does anyone have experience with cheap ANTOP antennas found on online stores such as this one:

I can't seem to find what's in the box, Just the antenna?

Do I need to buy mounting equipment and a cable etc

I think you would most likely get the antenna, a rubber boot and a screw on RG-6  f connector. It would say if you were also getting mast and cable etc. Dick Smith have a do it yourself aerial pack try this code...   L4735

A year ago I bought one like it from Noelleeming expecting a cable and fitting.  Took it out of box and aerial only.  Went to dick smith for cable and lead and they told me they dont carry those and go to Noelleeming and sure enough got what I wanted there.  But aerials in past used to come with cable and fitting when I did them ages ago
