Get The Best Reception Regional Nsw

Recommended Posts

Thanks Alan, that certainly looks a much daintier specimen than the laviathon I currently have.

So just to clarify....do you think the Mt Moombil transmitter @ 150Kw but 80k away would be better than the Toormina (Boambee) transmitter @ 500W which is about 9k away? Or is that a "how long's a piece of string" question?

Thanks

u9026a,

Even though you are closer to the Boambee/Sawtell Transmitter I know the area around Bonville, and there can be problems with Trees or Hills (not knowing your exact location). The best advice I can give is to get a qualified antenna installer to come and have a look at your location and use a signal meter to determine the best possible transmitter and location on your roof. That way the correct antenna can be selected for your location and be pointed at the best possible transmitter to give you consistent error free reception.

A local appraisal of your location is always the best option.

Hi Steve,

Yes, I know I should get a 'man' in, but I've had experience before of so called "experts" who basically turn up with no equipement then proclaim that I should get xyz antenna, without having tested anything. So if anyone knows a proper antenna guy in or around Coffs Harbour, I'd be grateful for the tip.

Cheers

A good local is BelloTV, he used to be active on this forum....I haven't seem any post from him for a while.

Based on where you are, I don't think you will be able to get the new Toormina Tx.

Is there a site/location one can visit, to see if there is a problem at your terrestrial tv transmission point?

 

e.g. Can I look anywhere to see if Mt. Moombil (2450 reception area) is experiencing any problems/work or whatever, that may be causing reception issues?

 

My reception is as per normal, however many residents in Bellingen/Orara Valley etc, that use Mt Moombil, are reporting bad pixelation, and don't know how to find out if it is a possible transmission problem?

 

Thank you
