Do you live in Mount Coolum or the Coolum area and have always had poor TV reception?
Now there is a solution, as the new transmitter has been completed and tested. You can now have your antenna redirected towards Point Arkwright transmitter(instead of Dulong or Bald Knob previously).
It’s important to check the signal at this time, as there may be a need to remove the existing booster if your signal is too strong. Signals that are too high need to be attenuated, as over strong signals will affect digital television the same as weak signals.
The polarity is also different. Previously the antenna will have been installed in the Horizontal polarity, however the new signals being broadcast from Pt Arkwright are vertical.
North Buderim television antennas may also benefit from this new transmitter, and all local channels will be available.
This is exciting news for those residents who have been frustrated since the move to digital tv on the Sunshine Coast, and it is excellent to now have a simple solution to get this fixed.
