just wondering if there are any other places around the country that wont be watching v8 supercars due to not having ch 7? :evil: in the south east of s.a. we dont have ch7 and cos of a deal the local tv mob did to get ten as a local chanel we dont get any ch7 programs. so now i gota spend $700 or so to put up a new tv aerial system and if the weather goes bad on the day i wont be watching anyway. so yeah, is there anyone else with this problem?

My house is in the bottom of a decline, and a lot of the reception is blocked out. The house has a roof antenna, but I can't use it, so the rabbit ears are all I have. I can get channel 10 fine, but 7 (even though I am only 5K away from the transmitter in Epping) is s**t.

Why don't you try getting a high gain UHF antenna (about $80) and pointing it towards Horsham or somewhere in VIC?

I live in North-West Sydney and have one pointed towards Wollongong so I can get the AFL footy earlier on a Friday night.

If you are going to try to get some long range reception it would also be a good idea to replace your cable with quad-shield RG6. I couldn't pick up squat with my old cable.

I just hope 7 doesn't bump footy games for the supercars. I guess 10 will show games that conflict. (yes, i'd rather watch footy than motor racing :shock: )

Hey Millard, Toddy spent a bomb on a top notch antennae and digital set top boxes and s**t, then I helped him put it all together. You're invited over whenever it's on (just bring some supplies :twisted: ) :lol:
