Its possible the dipole isn't connected to anything...could be that the poor but extant reception is simply a cable in the wall going up to the roof.

When we moved there in 1979 there was also a wire wound multiple times round the inside of the loft, would round the wooden beams at the edges. We figured this was some sort of radio reception/transmission apparatus but had no further knowledge.

She gets Anglia. In the days of analogue TV we used to get a really good Anglia signal, I always thought from Sandy Heath? We could get Central but with a lot of snow, depending on the weather conditions.

At least one of those UHF aerials on the roof still works, though she's currently using a huge one inside the loft that I had fitted in the 80s.
