Hi all, does anyone have a manual for a status aerial 530. just bought a caravan with one of these fitted.  I cant seem to get a picture at all. My caravan is sited with tree's around but others around me have the same aerial and there's works. All the pulgs are in place the light is on, so there is power there. If the bosster box was broken would it still light up?

 Status 530 Directional Antenna (Digital and Analogue reception)


Producing a Directional Antenna to carry the STATUS name was not an easy task. This new antenna needed to satisfy some critical criteria whilst providing the levels or quality, performance and design expected.

We have designed an efficient, wide-band, log periodic dipole array which incorporates specially designed telescopic antennas, the S530 produces exceptional performance across all UHF, VHF and FM signals.

One of the most significant features of the S530 is the setting up and positioning of your antenna when you arrive on site.

Firstly we had to overcome the problem of receiving horizontal and vertical signals with an antenna fixed to a mast mounted through the roof. Our solution is to incorporate an integral gearbox into the antenna dome, operated by a winder handle, which cants the antenna through 90 degrees. A clever and unique feature only offered by STATUS.

The greatest benefit of our design was to simplify locating a TV transmitter whenever you arrived at a new destination. Firstly, raising and lowering the antenna dome and adjusting its direction can all be performed in the warmth and comfort of indoors. Then simply turning the folding winder changes the antennas' polarity from horizontal to vertical.

The S530 is available in two different mast lengths depending on your particular installation and mounting requirements. Both units have the benefit of being angle adjustable, by up to 15 degrees, to allow level fixing on a sloping surface important if your mounting surface is not horizontal.

The S530/5 has 2 metres of coaxial cable and a 365mm mast, which raises the antenna dome 230mm above the roof. This short mast model is simpler to fit, only requiring the roof for support. More importantly, it has been specifically designed to be fit inside the majority of overhead lockers.

The S530/10 has 5 metres of coaxial cable, a 920mm mast and an extra mounting bracket which allows the antenna to be raised 550mm above the roof for that extra performance. This model requires a vertical surface for mounting the Wall Bracket and is usually located in a wardrobe.

Once installed both units sit low to the roofline for travelling and storage, being only 150mm high. However removal of a fully assembled antenna is straightforward and can be lifted out without any dismantling.

We are confident we have achieved our design brief. The S530 is clearly focused on performance as well as successfully addressing a number of operational issues to produce possibly the most powerful and user friendly directional antenna for mobile use, on the market today.
