|A The Logan Lake TV Society|
all volunteer society
Oct. 10, 2015 : We understand that there have been a number of folks complaining on
various social media sites about pixelation on numerous channels. Please note that
there are no pixelation issues with our signals. All channels are running
perfectly. However, many antennas are old and, while they may look fine, nothing lasts forever.
Corrosion in the contacts of your antenna can cut the signal strength to the point where
your TV does not get the full signal, resulting in pixelation on your TV. Make sure
your antenna is aimed accurately at our broadcast tower. If it is off by just 15 degrees, you
will lose half your signal! Remove any unnecessary splitters, for they cut your signal by more than half,
even if the second TV is not turned on. If you still have pixelation issues on your TV, it may be
time to replace your antenna. Please read our Help file #4 and Help file #8, and do any
needed repairs or replacements before the snow flies.
We have had people phone and ask us to come and fix their antenna. Please note that we
are a small, all volunteer society. We have neither the manpower nor the insurance to
go on people's roofs. Just as the government provides and maintains the roads,
but you have to fix your car when it breaks; we provide and maintain the signals, but you are
responsible for maintaining your antenna, downleads & TV.
Thanks for reading.
