Smaller 2 Axis TV Antennas | | Mid Size TV Antennas |
They are suitable for smaller vessels that mostly operate closer to home, or close to the continental seaboard. If you have plans for deep sea passages to exotic horizons you will need to check the coverage maps to determine if these antennas will fit your needs.
The 2 axis configuration will work fine at sea in calmer waters and in port. If you plan to watch TV in rough, high seas conditions you may be better off with a 3 axis antenna.
They can be purchased at your local marine store or electronics dealer and are mostly simple enough to bde installed by the local dealer or by the owner themselves. Some of them come bundled with a TV decoder for the DirecTV or Dish.
