The only way to check this out is by site survey and signal measurements.
I can highly recommend MTV and if he is too busy let me know and I will organize a time for a visit
Appreciate your reply.
Is the MM-DG16 a Matchmaster? My original was a MatchMaster "Digital Ready" about 7 years old [it's still in the garage], however, my antenna fellow has gone off Matchmaster in favour of Digitek [Full Digital] which is pulling in South Coast without the previous small mesh array pointing in that direction. Makes me wonder a bit if the side signals aren't being tuned out.
I used to watch them building the towers when I was a boy at Cammeray. Once Channel 9 built their new 50% higher tower and pulled down the old one, the signal went way over to the units in the Manly / Mosman / Cremorne direction and the resultant ghost was 4" removed from the main image. It was then I built my own array in the high pitched c. 1900's roof rather than strapping it to the chimney. Those terracotta tiles were probably up to 60 years old and I quickly learnt the correct way to walk on them. Never cracked one, however, have a few in the shed here for when tradesman ask if I have any spares
The Samsung HD set in question also exhibited dropouts with the Matchmaster however the picture was more pixellated than the current great big chunks [squares and rectangles] now. Sound dropouts now seem longer - subjective assessment. No fade, just off and eventually back on again, long enough to lose the plot in some dramas The computer tuners were fine with the Matchmaster though.
I appreciate your kind offer. Two problems though. Obviously I don't want to tread on my current fellows toes and also like the OP in 2009, I'm a disability pensioner so money is a problem at times. Not to say I'm not keeping MTV and yourself in mind.
