We do have an antenna kit on our site which comes with a preamp and all the items needed to install externally.

The Antenna Kit lower down the page does not include a RadarBox.

I would certainly recommend the Airnav (Wimo) antenna kit.  It doubled my reception coverage.

Yes, Wimo seems to be quite good - I use the same kit as Tarbat.

I can also vouch for the Wimo kit, not just a good antenna kit, but a nice company to deal with. I just received my replacement aerial today. I hope to fit it back up tomorrow. You can see the difference here on my web page. (Not that I wish to plug my site) http://www.amsnw.co.uk Click on the link "For more information"

Look at the images with the supplied aerial and then with the antenna kit from Wimo.
You just need to click on the thumbnails.

Another satisfied Wimo customer, I can vouch for the kit and the company too.
