I've installed a new antenna Jaycar LT3182 91 element job, after doing a bit of research on the net. On our main TV (Sony) the signal quality is 100%, while signal strength is between 90 - 100% for all channels. Another TV (Palsonic) installed in the bedroom however, drops out on some channels, picture breakup, loss of signal. I've replaced the cable to it which made no difference. Yet another TV (Sony) in the office is OK.
I find it hard to believe the signal isn't strong enough, in fact I've read that too strong a signal may result in the same symptoms. Any advice greatly appreciated!
Long time lurker but just got asked a question and thought no better place to post it. Friend of mine is having a huge number of double story units being built right behind them which appears to have just completely toasted any of the tv signal. The timing matches perfectly with the top level going up and the bricks and roof being done. He has an external antenna relatively new and been working fine and has tried pulling a new run of cable but no difference. Even tried a powered booster suposedly and no dice. Thought it may have been the TV originally so bought a new one and same deal.
If you can rule everything else out and looks to be the new building impacting the signal is there anything that can be done ? By that I mean approaching someone and logging a complaint and who knows maybe make the developer pay to put up a mast for the antenna ? Even without pursuing the jumping up and down route any other suggestions ? Relocating the antenna is a possibility but by the description of the layout and position of the two properties its unlikely to help.
I have been using to DAB in Perth for more than 4 years. I live in East Victoria Park.
I most often listen to three ABC stations: News Radio, Radio National and 720 Perth. I have two receivers, one upstairs in my bedroom and the other downstairs.
Until the last 3 or 4 week, I had flawless reception. Now I get regular drop outs on all three stations, sometimes lasting more than 1 minute, on both radios.
Is anyone aware of any issue which would have caused these problems to flare up in the last few weeks? Is anyone else having the same problem?

Good points MLXXX, a few people stopped getting excited about this forum due to the stupidity of others. Forum moderators are responsible for this mainly, I've also seen much advice and no field experience coming from said person. I don't like being told "remember" hey I do this job everyday. I have some great friends who are former broadcast engineers. I like to study different products to come up with viable solutions to simple issues. But I know I can be arrogant hence my comment about my experience the ones on here that seem to know the most only use it when necessary and with discernment, rather than pretending to be an authority.

Our reception for all channels goes from okay one moment to zilch for a day or so and revert to okay. This has been going on for the last 3 weeks. Left voice mail for our antennae repairer last week and still waiting for a call back. We are within 1.5km line of sight from the Bruxner Park Transmission towers, but too far away (26km?) From Mt. Moobil to the South of Coffs. Some days only the ABC and SBS channels are being received and tonight we are only getting the ABC1 channel, somewhat pixelated. Coincidently perhaps, but we have notice a drop in performance from Bruxner Park after each upgrade, particularly since the introduction of the shopping channels & the racing channel (68). I wouldn't have thought these mattered considering our close proximity to the transmission tower. Prior to the shutdown of the analogue services and the first major overhaul, our reception was first class on all channels.
If anyone else locally receiving their signals from Bruxner Park, I would be interested in hearing from you regarding the quality of service you are receiving.
