Has ABC reception recently gone bad in Canberra?

By emperorminge - 13 May 2011 30

In the last week my previously perfect ABC TV reception has gone bad. Its all the ABC channels – ABC1, ABC2, ABC News 24 etc.

Nothing has changed set-up wise in my house – the cables are fine, the roof mounted aerial is fine.  

I’ve tried rescanning and resetting the channels but I’m getting no ABC love. Anyone else having troubles? Any fixes?

What’s Your opinion?

No ABC? Great day in the morning! I only wish that demonic broadcasting medium would be taken off the air permanently.

I could feed the troll but he would only get worserer. So I won’t.

Worserer. Sweet. I feel embiggened. 🙂

They use an awful lot of big words, don’t they?

How about a deal; no Q&A or 7:30 in exchange for an end to Today Tonight and A Current Affair?

The ABC is great, if you don’t like it, then suck it up! There’s plenty of other tax dollars spent on things we don’t personally approve of.

You do strike me as a person whose views are informed by the ‘rational’ voice of talk back radio. In fact I think your posts are a great arguement for more funding for the ABC

My ABC TV reception is fine but my ABC Radio reception, particularly Radio National, has been poor lately! Anyone else experience this?

I know nothing about changes at the transmitter, but regarding my receiving setup, I had to shift my antenna slightly to allow for tree growth blocking my view of Telstra Tower. Also my coax and connectors were looking a bit rough. My signal is now back to rock-solid.

Wind can adversely affect your signal. If you had a poor quality signal to begin with (hard to know with digital unless you look at the signal strength/quality indicators that are present in some tv sets/tuners) then this might be enough make it break up.

Where are you located? What transmitter are getting your signal from? Do you have line of sight? Is your aerial an existing one you plugged a digital TV into? If it is new, did you have it installed or did you do it yourself? How many times do you split the signal?

To be honest, unless you’re quite tech savvy and want to do alot of google searching, I’d get Kaz Electronics or someone similar to take a look at your system. They would probably be able to improve it.

Hmm, all seems good with ABC TV at our place (inner north).

I’m still on analogue, and the ABC reception has been terrible for some months now. Ghosts, and the sound is distorted.

And SBS to boot. I don’t get it.

We are having problems with Channel Nine mainly – lots of blackouts and dead-air. ABC for us seems to be fine.

Yes, I’ve noticed some problems with sound and picture on ABC recently. At times it’s so bad we’ve had to switch the channel.
