  • Is it good to be wildly disconnected?

    Working in the outdoors with fabulous views of the Pembrokeshire coast is a regular occurrence for the 1a team and so when we were asked to provide WiFi broadband coverage for the Really Wild Food & Countryside Festival in St Davids last weekend, we knew we were in for a treat. The new venue at Celtic […]

  • There’s something wrong with the sky today?!

    The sky has turned from the usual dark grey to a strange blue colour and there’s something round and really bright that seems to be giving off heat.  Nice to be working without waterproofs and thermals today down at sunny Newgale… Removing a rusty old sky dish and tall rusty TV antenna in favour of […]

  • Newgale surfs the net

    To coincide with the long awaited arrival of summer on the stunning coast of West Wales, residents and businesses of Newgale and Penycwm in Pembrokeshire are now happily surfing The Net as well as the waves thanks to Welsh Government funding. Working in conjunction with WISP (Wireless Internet Service Provider) TFL-Groupof Neyland, 1a Aerialshas helped […]

  • TV for Solva properties from the top of the Gribbin

    TV reception in Solva has always been a challenge. None more so than keeping the long cable runs intact!I have found five TV aerials on the Gribbin and they all seem to have had numerous cable replacements over the years. Mainly because of rodents eating through them, storm damage where they are hung from trees […]

  • SKY TV upgrade for Penrhiw Priory

    On Friday I completed a bespoke installation for the very prestigious Retreats Group accommodation in StDavids. The Old Priory underwent massive renovation works and was completed about two years ago. Along with the renovation, Digital freeview TV was installed in all the rooms and satellite tv was not originally needed or specified.  Now after requests from some regular guests, the owners […]

  • Angle Village Broadband Scheme

    Work is all but complete on the installations for over twenty residents of Angle Village near Pembroke today. With one final installation for tomorrow, everyone of the subscribers have had their equipment installed and will be surfing the net at around 10MBps download and 4MBps upload when the network is fully commissioned. (Hopefully by the end […]

  • St David’s Cathedral Broadband & WiFi installation

    It’s not every day I get the chance to climb around a 6th Century building so when I was asked to complete a wifi installation at St Davids Cathedral, I made sure I packed the camera. Having almost no internet connectivity over conventional telephone wires, St David’s Cathedral had to get ‘up to speed’ to […]

  • St Davids Cathedral

    Working with the wireless broadband provider, TFL Group, I am in the privileged position to be working at St Davids Cathedral installing the ‘End User’ equipment for various locations around the grounds. From ‘relatively normal’ installations on three large properties to the Refectory Cafe and two feeds within the Cathedral itself. The work will take place over the next couple […]

  • TV for Wickes canteen…

    Staff at Wickes in Haverfordwest can now relax with a bit of news and entertainment after today’s visit… I simple enough instalation as there was already a sturdy non penetrating mount on the roof, similar to the one I used at Roch Castle. Using Wickes own stock, I picked a CAI approved antenna and cable […]

  • Discrete Installation

    A recent renovation project near Solva required a discrete instalation of a dish for freesat and WiFi broadband antenna and as so much time and effort has gone into the look of the building, it would have been a shame to spoil it with antennas… Here are some pics of how the kit blended in […]

  • Community WiFi in St David

    I’ve just completed six installations of Community Wifi antennas for Wales Broadband in some pretty remote spots such as Whitesands & Tretio.The system is giving broadband speeds that put telephone broadband providers to shame.With a simple antenna about the size of a pencil case, linked to a Wales Broadband relay station, residents of Saint David’s and […]
