- Outdoor: Outdoor antennae are also known as directional antennae. This is because these antennae are more specific in terms of receiving signals directionally. The front front part of an outdoor antenna contains short length conductors to receive UHF band transmissions, while the rear end of it has long conductors to pick up VHF band transmissions. This system makes this type of antenna more efficient and specific than the indoor type because this type of antenna narrows down the band it receives.
Installation of antennae is is easy, though it requires a certain level of precision. Normally, antennae are placed on roof tops. The directional antennae should be pointed, though roughly, at the transmitter they are receiving from. Also, the antennae should be placed in such a way that ghosting (receiving reflected versions of the same transmission) of signals can be avoided.
