Auslog antennas offer an economic price point for reception of all digital channels. The Poltec range extends to both VHF and UHF antennas and also 3G/4G antennas suitable for improving the reception of wireless internet.
Early models had various design issues, including abrasion of the coaxial cabling near the boom. This has been fixed in later revisions however the coaxial cable exit is still not optimal. The water cap has been observed to degrade over time from UV exposure. In terms of reliability, the Auslog has not been seen in the field to give any major issues or failures and is overall a reliable antenna.
