While doing some property inspections recently (that’s a whole other story…) it has become clear to us that Canberra seems to suffer from a lack of on-roof tv aerials in most cases.
I’m not saying in every case, but, for the majority of times, it seems that an aerial on the roof, ala other major cities, doesn’t exist here in Canberra. Newer developments seem to have them in some instances, and some older places have them.
I’m wondering why people in Canberra all use the internal Rabbit Ears or similar, and have done for the 20-odd years i’ve been living here.
The only reason I ask is because for myself personally, the issue has never come up before now, it’s just tv. However, my partner is querying it, as the reception is kinda crappy.
It’s all well and good to say “use a STB” but everything I’ve heard suggests they don’t necessarily amplify or increase the signal.. if you have crap reception, it’s just going to be crap digital reception.
Can anyone throw any light on the matter? Is it a planning regulation, or is there some sort of tax involved ?
