How many antenna points or outlets can I have ?

As many as you like ,  usually if your local antenna signal is good  we can run up to 4  to 6 points without a distribution  booster  . I have installed 12 points in one house with very good results . I can test the antenna signal strength  with my Digital antenna system analyser and advise you  of the best solution.

Do I need a antenna  booster or amplifier ?

With  TV antennas on the Gold Coast  some time a booster is needed to boost the signal up to a level that the TV recognises as a good signal, 50 db  is a good digital pass. If your house is in a good position to the transmitter this is not necessary  , there will be plenty of antenna signal ,but in lower signal areas a booster is important. It is important to match the right antenna booster for the job as they have different levels of amplification .  I can match the booster to your system with my digital antenna analyser for the best Gold coast antenna reception .

What is 4G antenna interference on the Gold Coast ?

4G antenna interference on the Gold coast  is due to the new 4G mobile phone broadband network .  The frequencies for the network are close to the channels that we use for digital television reception on the gold coast . They can clash with you digital television reception and case drop outs and breaking up of the picture . This usually  occurs when you are close to a 4G network tower . I can  identify the problem with my Digital antenna signal analyser  and  fix the problem  by putting filters on your antenna system or replacing the booster with a new generation mast head  antenna amplifier that suppresses the interference .

Why do I need Quad shield cable ?

Digital antenna systems on the Gold Coast require Quad shield cable because it has four layers of shielding prevents interference and provides low loss to the  digital antenna signal . I stock the leading brands of quad shield cable as they provide the best performance.

It is also available free to Gold coast residents who  are in blind spots to the gold coast antenna transmitters . The service is free but you need to purchase a set top box and have a satellite dish  fitted to your roof . I can help with the registration, supply and installation of the system.

Should I unplug my antenna from the Television  in a storm ?

To protect your Television in a storm from lightning   you need to unplug the antenna and the power as lightning can travel through both cables .  I do not recommend doing this if the lightning is  all ready  in your area as if it happens to strike wile you are holding the antenna or power cable , the outcome may be far worse than a blown up television .

A lot of Gold coast television antenna systems require a booster and the previous owners often take it with them. I can come out and test you antenna system to rectify the problem. It is important to put the rite type of booster back on.
