*Pre 4G-800 LTE. LTE will roll out across the UK from May 2013 to mid-2017. TV channels 61 to 68 (791 to 862MHz) may suffer interference during and after this period.

Some re-tuning of terrestrial equipment may be necessary.

**Post 4G-800LTE. After LTE roll out across the UK channels above Ch60 may not be available. Switch the built-in filter to on to minimise the risk of LTE interference.

In some circumstances, additional external filtering and LTE compatible TV aerial may be required.
NB: Multipoint domestic aerial systems may require earthing.

Consult the latest codes of practice & legislation for information.
*Important note: When using A QUAD LNB you will normally require a larger dish than when using a QUATTRO LNB.

For professional IRS installation, we recommend a QUATTRO LNB and an 80cm dish south of Manchester or 1.0m in the north and Scotland.

This will ensure reliable reception in poor weather conditions.
