TrevorPaintain isAntiference’sManaging

Director.He is seenhereholding the current

84-pageproduct catalog inhis righthand

filledwith allof theirTV receptionand

TVdistributionproducts. Inhis lefthand

he’sholdingoneofAntiference’s success

stories: theTribeamUHFantenna.

Everything has a beginning; even TV

reception, that for us today is a part of

life, had a starting point. For England

that was in 1936 when the first regular

TV transmissions began. Broadcasting

took place on VHF channel 1 (50 MHz)

and a system with 405 lines was used.

Today SD uses 720 lines and HD 1080

lines.

ThesefirstTVbroadcastswere trans-

mitted from Alexandra Palace in Lon-

don (The site is still in operation today

and isnowused forDVB-T2 andDAB+).

At the time, it was an absolute sensa-

tion and raised the curiosity levels of

two electronics technicians: Norman

Best and M. S. Beebe. They recognized

the unbelievable potential of this new

technology and thereby found their

market niche that they never changed

after they founded their company in

1937. They named the company An-

tiference, and this name was based

on the main problem that existed back

then: the interference that was created

by those antennas that were not per-

fectly matched to the frequency. The

antennas from Antiference were the

solution to that problem; they reduced

interference.

In 1938 their young company be-

came a limited liability company in the

London Company Register and the two

young owners hired their first employ-

ees. Back then TV antennas were con-

sidered real high-tech products and

the number of customers they hadwas

very small. It all really began to take

off in the 1950’s when TVs became af-

fordable and the demand for antennas

skyrocketed. The company, that up un-

til then had its headquarters in central

London, moved to the outskirts of the

city and manufactured TV antennas

with nearly 250 employees. That initial

boom slowly faded but then in 1964

BBC started their second channel in the

UHF band. That meant a renewed de-

mand, this time forUHF antennas.

The company went through a series

of ups and downs in the demand for

antennas so they began to diversify.

This went so far that even a curtain

rod manufacturing company was ac-

quired. This company was located in

Lic field, a half hour train ride north

of Birmingham in England’s Midland. In

1998 the entire companymoved to this

location and it can still be found there

today. Antiference’s Managing Director

is Trevor Paintain; he’s been with An-

tiference for 15 years now. He tells us

who the current owners of Antiference

are: “SinceMayof2011Antiferencehas

been owned by Mr. and Mrs. Bialecki

from Australia.”

How did someone from Australia end

up buying a British company? It turns

out that thiswasavery logicaldevelop-

ment. “In the 1990’sKazBialecki start-

ed a company inAustralia that installed

antenna systems.” Not long after that

he expanded his activities to include

an antenna installation wholesale busi-

ness. “Today his company Bitek oper-

ates five branch offices all across Aus-

tralia.” In 2007 Kaz Bialecki started his

own manufacturing: “In Guangzhou,

China, 150 employees produce anten-

nas and accessories, that is, things like

LCD holders, antennamounts, antenna

outlets and other installationmaterial.”

Now the connection is beginning to

make sense. Bitek is one of the larg-

est antenna distributors in Australia

and an antenna manufacturer in China

while Antiference is one of the largest

antenna manufacturers and distribu-

tors in Great Britain. For Kaz Bialecki

Two electronics technicians founded the company in 1937; it

wasofficially entered into theLondonCompanyRegisteron 28th

January 1938.

Actively Involved in Satellite

Business for 33 Years

TimHeinrichs,DMS International’s

CEO, inhisoffice inAcworth,

Georgia,northwestofAtlanta.He’s

testing anFS2signalanalyzerbeta

model.

There aren’t too many companies

that have hung around for decades and

at the same time are still in the same

business segment. DMS International,

which has been in existence since the

very early days of TV reception via

satellite, belongs to that group. Tim

Heinrichs is Founder and CEO of satel-

litewholesalerDMS International and if

you’ve been in the same business for so

long, there’s absolutely no doubt that

you are a real enthusiast. In the small

town of Acworth, not too far from Lock-

heedandMariettanorthwest

of Atlanta,Georgia,USA,we

found Tim Heinrichs and his

wife Vicky, the President of

the company. We wanted to

know how DMS International

becamewhat it is today.

Tim Heinrichs has been a DXer

for a long time: hewas excited about

CB communications when it first start-

ed and all that could be done with it.

It allowed people for the first time to

communicatewirelesslywith each other

without too much in the form of tech-

nical requirements. Oh really? In 1968

Tim erected a tower 25meters high for

his CB antenna. He used it to listen in

when railroad employees talked to each

other, when construction companies

passed onwork orders to their builders,

when truck driverswarned others of ra-

dar traps on the highways andwhen the

policewould coordinate roadblockswith

their headquarters. But Tim was espe-

cially fascinated with the phenomenon

of “skip” transmissions: under certain

weather conditions CB radio transmis-

quite heavy; they were made of fiber-

glass with metal braces and weighed

400 pounds.” Tim still remembers today

what an experience itwas to be able to

receive a TV picture with his new dish.

“Itwas an absolute sensation to be able

to receive a signal from space from so

far away.”

Then came the turning point in Tim

Heinrichs’ evening job: a farmer bought

that dish from him. “That’s when it all

started, next I bought two new dishes.”

Thatwas in1980 and itwas at thispoint

thatTimHeinrichs recognized that there

was a new business brewing. He sold

and installed these dish antennas at a

fasterand faster rate.Thebreakthrough

came in 1982: “I invested $40,000 and

bought my first truckload of dishes - it

was 500 three-meter antennas.” Tim

Heinrichsyoung companybecamea sat-

ellitewholesaler.

“At first Iworked both jobs;my regu-

lar job at the railroad and at nights and

weekends atmy own companyDMS In-

ternational.” That onlyworked for a few

months: he had tomake a decision and

naturally he chose his own company.

“My wife Vicky worked along side me

from the beginning; at first she took

care of the books and now she’s the

President of the company.”

In 1991 another big decision had to

be made: the market in Nebraska was

covered so in order to better expandhis

business thedecisionwasmade tomove

his company to Atlanta, Georgia. DMS

International can still be found there to-

day. “Transportation costs are cheaper

here”, rationalizes Tim regarding this

decision and then grins as he adds,

“Besides, the weather is much better

here.”Sure enough, the company expe-

rienced quite a boom in business. Vicky

provides uswith a few sales figures: “In

1991 DMS managed sales of roughly

$2.0 million.” The company’s best year

was 2008: “Back then we had sales of

$12million.Sales have pulled back a lit-

tle bit since then although in 2009 they

were still at about $9.0million.”

For many years DMS International

was a small company with very few

employees: Itwas Vicky and Tim along

with one or twowarehouse and admin-

istrative employees. “Today we have

10 employees with a warehouse that is

14,000 Sq-ft in size.” Up until recently

DMS International was mainly focused

on the North American market, “that

is, the USA, Canada and Mexico”, ex-

plains Tim. As recently as 2009/2010

sions in the 27 MHz range would skip

off the ionosphereor troposphereallow-

ing for two-way communications over

extremely long distances. “Back then I

collected QSL cards from my contacts

and managed to collect nearly 1000 of

those cards.”

Tim also worked for the railroad in

Nebraska and when word got around

among his friends and coworkers that

he liked to tinkerwith radios in his free

time, they began bringing him defec-

tive radios, TVs and CBs. At first itwas

tedious, but later on it became routine

for him to repair these devices. “Even

the police came to me to repair their

radios.” Tim was becoming more and

more experienced in radio technology.

In 1979 he read an article in a techni-

cal magazine about satellite reception.

This new techn

ology was irresistible to

Tim; he simply

had to have it.He spent

a lot of money

on his first three-meter

dish. “Back then thedish antennaswere

CO PANY REPORT

With a yearly production of five mil-

lion satellite dishes and even more

LNBs, Topsignal is one of the largest

manufactures of these products. The

company actually started in a com-

pletely different product segment: ac-

tuators and motors for satellite dish-

es. It’s an unusual development that

we had a look at in the small city of

Ninghai. Ninghai is located near Ningbo

which itself is a three-hour train ride

south of Shanghai.

Zongbao King founded the company

in Ninghai back in the year 2003. Back

thenantennamotors for satellitedishes

were indemand andZongbaoKingbuilt

a production facility for these motors.

“Unfortunately, today there’s not much

demand for these motors anymore”,

explains Sales Manager James You to

us. Order quantities have steadily de-

creased, “but we can still handle any

kindoforder sinceour storeroom is still

fully stocked.”

Two other product groups are today’s

sales giants at Topsignal: “In 2008 we

started manufacturing satellite dish-

es and in 2011 we started producing

LNBs.” The quantities are huge: nearly

a half million satellite ishes are pro-

duced monthly and even more LNBs.

The reason these production numbers

are almost the same is simply that the

dishes and LNBs are sold in sets. A

How Anna Built up

DVBCN.com

in Just 10 Years

AlexanderWiese

AnnaXie is founder andownerofDVBCN,

the largestwebsite fordigitalTV inChina

(www.dvbcn.com

).RecentlyDVBCNbegan

cooperatingwithTELE-satellite.Thefirst

DVBCNadappeared in theTELE-satellite

issue thatAnna isholding inherhand.

It’s not easy to find women in lead-

ing positions in the digital TV business

and it’s even rarer for women to actu-

ally start a company in this business.

But that’s exactly what Anna Xie did:

she started awebsite from nothing and

in just 10 years built it up into China’s

largest site for digital TV. It’s an exci-

ing story thatwewanted to hear about

directly from her.

DVBCN’s offices can be found in

Shanghai’sMinhangDistrict. Anna rent-

ed expansive office space on the fifth

floorofamodernofficebuilding.10em-

ployeeswork therealthoughDVBCNhas

an additional 13 employees. But more

on that later. First we wanted to know

how Annamanaged to turn herwebsite

intoChina’s largest site for digital TV.

She explains to us: “I come from

Wenzhou in theZhejiang Province.”This

province is located south of Shanghai;

Anna studiedat theuniversity inShang-

hai. “I studied TV and radio journalism.”

That was in 2001. And she was still a

brand new student when she start-

ed her website DVBCN in 2002 (www.

dvbcn.com). “At first itwas just a forum

to discuss technical information.”

As you can tellby thewebsite’sname,

her forumdealtback thenprimarilywith

the new DVB technology. “We made

available for download all documents,

technical specifications and standards.”

Some of the docu

ments were trans

lat-

ed into Chinese by her fellow students.

Anna had managed to find a powerful

market gap; anyone in China who was

involvedwith receiver production or de-

velopment of digital receiver software

could view and download all the neces-

sary documents fromAnna.

“By 2004we alrea

dy had 80,000 reg-

istered users”, remembers Anna about

the quickly growing popularity of her

website. “We also offered the source

codes forDVB applications andDVB an-

alyzer information.”

A natural development of her down-

load forum website was the start of a

discussion page and not long after that

a news pagewas started. TodayDVBCN

is themost viewedwebsite in China for

anyone that in one form or another is

connected with digital TV. Technicians

can find not only valuable information

for their work on the DVBCN site, but

even those employees inmarketing use

DVBCN for up to date information on

digital TV trade shows and exhibitions.

Today DVBCN has over 200,000 regis-

tered users.

But Anna was not satisfied with one

website. “The main site is just a base

website”, she explains, “but two other

business segments are above all finan-

cially successful.”Since somanyprofes-

sional digital technical users have come

togetheronDVBCN, itwasactuallyquite

easy to provide them and digital TV

firms a platform where workers could

find new jobs and digital TV companies

couldfindnewemployees: In2005Anna

started her new website

www.51dtv

.

com that resembles a recruiting com-

pany; the number 51 is Chinese for “I

need”.

At themomen

twww.51dtv.com

isonly

available in Chinese but Anna is in the

process of creating an English version

thatwouldmake it easier for companies

outside of China to search for employ-

ees and also, vice versa, tomak ite s-

ier for Chinese digital TV specialists to

find a jobwith a foreign company.

But thatwas still not enough forAnna

- in 2011 she founded yet another busi-

ness segment in her own company:

Digital Technology Ltd. develops digi-

High Investment

in Product Quality

SVECCEOWangDuo

SVEC (Sichuan Video Equipment

Company) has beenmanufacturing sa-

tellite antennas of all sizes since 1993.

Production quantities are enormous:

SVEC manufactures several million

dishes each month. The most popu-

lar dish types are 60 and 75cm off-

set antennas. Next in line are 1.2 and

1.5-meter diameter dishes. But SVEC

also manufactures large segmented

dishes with diameters of 2.4 meters.

LatelySVEC is concentrating on expan-

ding their professional VSAT antenna

business. “We also offer Ka-Band di-

shes for Internet-via satellite”,we learn

from Becky,Manager of the Internatio-

nal Sales Team. And, really, that’s the

reason why we came to pay a visit to

SVEC: professional products require

professional production.

We already reported onSVEC back in

TELE-satellite 02-03/2010 issue. Even

back then we already mentioned how

SVECwas becoming active inVSAT and

the Ka-Band. Since then SVEC has in-

vested enormously to not only guaran-

tee production quality but also to raise

thequality tonew levels; levels thatare

unheardof foramanufacturer thatpro-

ducesmillions of dishes everymonth.
