    Thats good sound advice from abcd567.

    I started off with the DVB stick and small whip running on a pc, I now have it running on a Raspberry Pi3 connect to a Radar-Rama antenna (see pic). At the moment the antenna is in the roof space of my garage, this is limiting the range somewhat. My plan, when funds allow, is to mount the antenna on the cable end of my house, this should improve the range considerably.

    PS not all dongles come with an antenna, many have option to buy with antenna.
