Well, by the time you read this the dust will have settled on another great Antennas Conference and those in the know will have no doubt started scratching their heads figuring out a way to do it all over again in (hopefully) another exotic location for 2013… This years conference was the second that I have attended and thoroughly encourage anyone who hasn’t yet been to one to get your name down for next year, who knows, it may even help your business if you do…. For those that were present on the Saturday (Award night) this year you will know that I am a man of very few words… with that in mind I just wanted to use the newsletter as a way of saying a couple of thank you’s that I didn’t say on the night due to my state of shock at winning!!!…. First of all, a little bit […]
Technician: Sam (Donvale – VIC) Service: Antenna Installation I would just like to let you know what wonderful and friendly service I received yesterday from Sam whilst installing a new antenna at our home in Thornbruy. His customer service was most professional, he completed his job quickly and most efficiently. In short, he provided exceptional service. Nothing was too much trouble for him. I will most certainly be recommending him to anyone who needs this type of service.
Techncician: Ian (Mandurah – WA) Service: Installation of Smart TV & BlueRay Set Up We are more than happy with the service provided by Ian in installing our new Smart TV and BlueRay recorder at our home in Kennedy Bay WA. He was extremely helpful and gave us some very good advice as well. It was pleasing to see somebody with genuine knowledge of the product he was installing and the manner in which he carried out his work. Ian carried out the job in a very timely fashion and at all times was polite and respectful of our home.
Technician: Aaron (Canterbury – VIC) Service: TV Wall Mount Hi Aaron, Thanks again for your promptness in installing our TV’s at our premises in Mooroolbark VIC. We truly appreciated your expert opinion and the way you did the job. It looks so neat and tidy and the ’black duct’ clearly demonstrated you going above and beyond. Good luck with your new business- I‘m sure you will do very well and if we need you for anything else we will be sure to call! Cheers, Jill Stallworthy
Technician: Vince (Bossley Park – NSW) Service: TV Reception Issues I had lovely experience with Vince from Jim’s Antennas (Bossley Park) at my home in Baulkham Hills NSW on Saturday morning. Vince was professional and really very helpful, he didn’t rip me off and he was very quick I was very happy with his service and speed thank you again.
Technician – Shane (Upwey – VIC) Service: UHF Antenna Installation & Surround Sound The expertise and service provided today by Shane when installing a UHF antenna, but more particularly when he set up the surround sound system (SSS) was fantastic. The SSS has never sounded so good! We are very grateful to Shane for producing a sound (through the speakers) which is far better than when initially installed by a rep from the retailer where we purchased the system (Sanyo) from. Thank you Shane! David Carroll 17 August, 2012
Jim’s Antennas Central Queensland recently set up Satellite Dishes to beam a live simulcast service for Queensland Performing Arts!
Jim’s Antennas Central Queensland recently set up Satellite Dishes to beam a live simulcast service for Queensland Performing Arts. This is the second performance QPAC have hosted .The first being the world acclaimed Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra last September, then Hamburg Philharmonic Orchestra last week. Jim’s Antennas were asked to install Dishes and decoder boxes in 8 venues throughout regional Qld. These performances were beamed via Satellite from the live performance in QPAC Concert Hall in Brisbane to regional Centers around Queensland from Cairns to Bundaberg, and across to Mt Isa. The Simulcast this time included an outdoor venue in Cairns, specially set up for the night. All venues utilised projectors fed via a decoder box over HDMI. Each venue has a dish installed for future use. This will be an onward going event with QPAC keen to install additional sites for future Simulcast events.
Technician: Ian (Noosa Heads – QLD) Service: TV & Surround Sound I can highly recommend Ian as knowledgeable, efficient and the best tradesman I have come across to help with the installation of TV & sound system as well as locating the best position for Antenna reception. I will certainly be recommending him to friends and family!
Digital TV was instigated virtually worldwide, to enhance our viewing experience by offering DVD quality images and sound. Digital TV also uses the broadcast frequencies far more efficiently. This enables us to receive up to four digital channels in the same ‘space’ previously occupied by one analogue channel. These advances allow the use of antennas which are designed for digital, in the sense that the frequency or channel range is a lot smaller. The use of digital TV signal can be quite forgiving, meaning that quite often perfect reception can be achieved in areas that previously had poor analogue coverage. The biggest enemy of digital reception is interference, which can come from sources such as other TV transmitters, radio transmitters, hilly terrain, trees and vegetation. These can cause problems in your TV antenna system through poor antenna design or selection, incorrect setup of the system and old or poor quality […]
With the analogue switch off imminent in Adelaide, now occurring in April 2013 which is earlier than first planned it is becoming more obvious that some older antenna systems which have until now been working intermittently and able to decode some digital signals with analogue as a backup when drop outs occur will not be able to cope with the change to fully digital. Jim’s Antennas are pleased to be able to offer Hills new premium TruBand range which have been designed and built locally to service the harshest Australian conditions and offer both the installer and the end user the best available product. Not only do they perform brilliantly, but they look pretty good too!
