700MHz clearance progress and details by Jim Lesurf[_2_]
I've been 'otherwise occupied' for some months so not reading usenet. However as a result of discussions elsewhere I realised I'm out of touch with the progress/state/etc of the way the 700 MHz band is being cleared and people needing to retune or get new filters. Can someone point me at...

TOT (Analogue Radio) by Chris Holmes
Hi All, When our famous (mentioned in despatches on uk.d-I-u) Sony Midi system lived about 3 miles from CP, I put a passive splitter on the TV aerial download and connected one side to FM in on the Sony’s tuner (can’t remember exactly how (ie, just inner, or what). And got a great signal. ...

COM7&8 on Crystal Palace by tim...[_2_]
Hi, I just moved into my new house and (as I have been relying on Freesat at the previous one) had to by a new HD receiver for my "HR Ready" TV. When I tuned it in, it found all of the channels on COM7&8 but when I select them they are dark. I am 3-4 miles away from the transmitter, so...

DSO - confusing implementation by AnthonyL
I've mentioned before I'm on the Nottingham relay transmitter. At the end of last month I got loads of channels and I thought "Great, no need to change the aerial". A couple of days later the commercial channels suffered. Now I find that their power will be boosted on next week, (MUX2), only...

the combining of TV signals in the early days by Bill Wright[_3_]
When ITV started in the mid 50s it was on frequencies around 200Mc/s. BBC TV was on 50-60Mc/s. (Please don't nit-pick these figures) Different scenarios emerged for the combining or not combining of the signals.| No need to combine: 1. ITV set top boxes had separate aerial sockets so two...

APROPOS OF NOTHING It’s seven years since I installed an aerial or a dish. But several times a week I have long, detailed, involved dreams about work. Normally these are set in the UHF analogue age; sometimes they are set in the satellite analogue age, and occasionally, just occasionally,...

In a previous post, I reported that the boom arm of the DAB aerial broke into two at where the folded dipole is. It's a triax 13 element VHF aerial covering Ch 5 to Ch 13 as I found this performed better at the time (10 years ago at least) than a standard aerial tuned for DAB which was then Ch 11B...
