Gold Coast TV reception Issue

Recommended Posts

Hey guys
I’m on the Gold Coast 4221 Elanora and I’m having issues with all of channel 9s (GO, HD etc) along with channel 22, 23

When watching it, it keeps breaking up

Other channels like ten and 7 are find touchwood 
Anyone?

Hello

Elanora is well served by both Currumbin and Mt Tamborine transmitter sites.

If your antenna is oriented vertically and pointing towards Currumbin, ensure you are using channels 34/571.5MHz, 35/578.5Mhz, 36/585.5MHz, 37/592.5MHz, 38/599.5MHz, 39/606.5MHz, 49/676.5MHz and 50/683.5MHz. (The Nine Network is on 35/578.5Mhz)

If your antenna is oriented horizontally and pointing towards Mt Tamborine, ensure you are using channels 40/613.5MHz, 41/620.5Mhz, 42/627.5MHz, 44/641.5MHz, 45/648.5MHz, 46/655.5MHz, 47/662.5MHz and 48/669.5MHz. (The Nine Network is on 45/648.5Mhz)

 

Another way of putting it:

If you find you have an antenna pointing to Currumbin and the TV  for the Nine Network is tuned to channel 45 on 648.5 MHz retune to channel 35 on 578.5 MHz.

Conversely , if you find you have an antenna pointing to Tamborine and the TV  for the Nine Network is tuned to channel 35 on 578.5 MHz retune to channel 45 on 648.5 MHz.

 

If neither of the above apply, consider you may have an antenna/cabling issue to resolve, such things can appear channel specific.

Do you have a picture of which TV Antenna you are using and what direction is it pointed to?

All very well to know which channels, but the annoyance is having to make use of this document list of broadcast stations, location and antenna type and Kw power, a map and a compass

https://www.acma.gov.au/-/media/Licence-Issue-and-Allocation/Publication/pdf/TVRadio_Handbook_Electronic_edition-pdf.pdf?la=en

Or you are simply back wondering why your next antenna did not operate also !

If you want to fix your reception you need to consider it may be an issue of "signal reliability" of which weather at the transmitter end is as bad as problems the receiver end can suffer but you may not be hearing or seeing it occurring !

The advice I gave above remains sound, Elanora reception issues post restack as a result of Mt Tamborine no longer being part of the SFN are mainly a result of auto tune functions and antennas needing repointing, thankfully it has quietened down considerably.
