Has Your Reception Decreased Lately?

6 posts in this topic

Has anyone else had a reduction in their reception quality lately? I'm in Wulagi with the Austar supplied UHF antenna and seem to be getting random breakup, particularly on Ch 10 and 7 when before xmas it used to be crystal clear.

All the channels worked fine as usual on my TV with inbuilt HD tv tuner. Maybe it's the cabling or the antenna? The cable I have is all digital, thick cable. The only problem I have is when the wind blows, the signals go bad but that's because of afternoon seabreezes and I live at Malak

antenna must have moved a smidge. Cabling was all new digital cabling and never a problem before. Might check leads in case they've kinked or something.

it's possible. it has been very windy of late in Darwin. Could lightning have anything to do with it? I can recall some severe electrical storms especially on the 1st and 10th december and again on the 30th december and the 1st of January in the lead up to the arrival of the monsoon trough. The problem started around christmas time, correct?

Does anybody recall cyclone laurence in it's infancy stages? it was really windy then. either it was windy or the weather was electrical.

still an issue for me. checked antenna and is done up tight so couldn't move. replaced patch lead, no change. might see if i can find a signal strength tester for my media centre and move the antenna around.
