ItPROPENDER Posted May 22, 2008 CID Report Share Posted May 22, 2008 I'll never forget being called to a viewers house and finding poor reception about four and a half miles from the tower. It looked great on the portable television analyzer. The company engineer and I scratched our heads over it. Something out of the blue, struck me and I asked, "What's on the other side of the wall?" What's on the other side of your wall. Do you have one of these thinqs: a humidifier, attic fan, whole house fan, or anything electrical on the other side of the barrier (roof included). What about close by on the roof is there an attic fan or humidifier in the beam or just plain nearby. The culprit on my occassion, a plastic band digital watch under the television. Certainly the electronic equipment should be given some leeway, Some space. The cable will not pick up much noise; however, it is possible. Give a visual inspection to make sure along the entire legnth of the cables they have "breathing room" of about two and one half inches on any direction from electrically inductive equipment.
