My neighbor ordered an HDTV antenna - the brand escapes me - and un-be known to him there were three connector options at the time of order - USA F type connector, European push on type connector, and Australian type connector. When he realised that he ordered the Euro style connector he promptly picked up an adapter from the Euro push on connector to USA type F connector. He then placed the antenna in a window and connected the antenna to the input of his TV. He calls me at this point telling me he gets no signal on either VHF or UHF bands.
I admit to knowing next to nothing on how any of these antennas work as I have Community Antenna TeleVision (CATV), but if I had to guess, the antenna he bought is tuned to the European frequency spectrum, and as such will not work on the USA frequencies.
Can anyone confirm my suspicions on this?
