Is there an easy to mount good long lasting log periodic out there these
days? I need one for somebody, and am a bit out of touch.

Hmm, mentions Log 36 as the longest that I can see, so what's happened to
the Log 40? Is this shrinkflation?

Not especially. It's more that the ones with wire elements are much
better now than they used to be.

They seem quite expensive.
I marvel at some of the aerials that came down in the storm into the road.
Most seem to be holding elements on, or rather not holding them on well,
with tacky looking bits of brittle plastic that has one self tapper through
into the boom, probably done up too tight and the plastic cracks then falls
off in the next big wind or heavy pigeon landing.

Thanks. I'll have to get sighted help. That site seems to have not been
designed with the non sighted in mind, but then who would expect a blind
person to want to read about aerials when they can see a picture.
Sadly they don't use headers so actually browsing the pages is difficult
with the alt tags and text often running together into incomprehensible
garbage.
At least ther are alt tags though, all too often graphic links say a number
and letters that mean nothing to anyonebut the site builder!
I'll go and poke about on Blakes site and see if thats any better.

The information on the site is good, but the page layout is not even
designed with sighted people in mind.

The paragraphs of text are fixed size and position rather than expanding
and flowing to fit the contents, so there are silly scroll bars everywhere!

I've bought two (log36) aerials from ATV and both times I got very
helpful advice over the phone before also ordering over the phone even
though I was on-line at the time

Phone number :
0114 2854 254
(The phone lines tend to be less busy between 10.00 and 1.00)

I installed both aerials in reception problem areas, both aerials
work/worked very well and better than my neighbour's with their
locally installed "digital" aerials.

I don't know and don't care if they are deemed to be a bit expensive,
I'm not buying a lot of them and I don't care to go up on the roof
more often than I need to.
