UHF Antenna uses Ultra High-Frequency signals two-way radio, public safety and commercial communications. UHF is the range between 300 MHz and 3 GHz. We received a call from a customer in an existing property in Yarraville facing problems with TV reception.
Mr. Antenna attends several calls from Yarraville where TV reception problems are a very common occurrence. This particular customer was having problems with the TV reception on their new 82 inch Samsung TV.
We conducted a thorough check of the reception with our test equipment. We discovered that the VHF/UHF antenna which they had in place was producing poor signal quality. The VHF/UHF analog antenna was about 15 to 20 years old. The old antenna, therefore, requires replacement with a new UHF antenna. This would be pointed towards the newly updated TV transmitter that has been located on top of 600 Bourke St Melbourne.
Traditionally, all antennas received their signals from the TV transmitters located on top of Mount Dandenong. The signal faced interference as it travelled through buildings. As a result, this meant the signals become weak for the residents of Yarraville. Thus, the requirement to switch to digital has never been higher.
Changing to the UHF allows us to receive a clean digital signal from the top of 600 Bourke. The end result, therefore, means that the customer now has perfect TV reception without any annoying dropouts or pixelation.
