HW-DT8 Antenna Mark 3 UHF/VHF


SKU: 900-02403 Category:


The DT8 Dual Loop patent design is new & radical giving consistent high gain as well as good front to back ratio, which means a superior performance over a long distance in country locations. It has forgiving aiming characteristics with 70 degrees of beam width which allows DT8 to receive signal without pointing directly toward transmission tower.

Code HW-DT8 is for antenna head only.  The most universal Bracket & Mast to go with the DT8 is the “Multi-Fit”, Antenna Bracket of web page

  • Receives very low powered DTV country stations.
  • UHF/VHF antenna  (VHF about 5% of Australian locations & only in Capital city regions)
  • An optional booster is available but we feel that boosting will be rarely needed as DT8 puts very weak signal onto TV. See Booster section and “Easy Tune” combined signal finder & booster all in 1 unit & test result below but does not hurt to have optional booster for a few weak signal areas.
  • Antenna has long range capabilities so it suits most Australian locations.
  • No power needed so can be used with 240 and 12 volt RV’s ( a real problem with DX2700 for 12 volt solved)

  • Fits all our current bracket & mast types. Note. antenna is separate to Mast & Bracket (best bracket & mast is HW-M/FB product – See ANTENNA BRACKETS section)
