Selecting the Right Antenna Mount

Grant from Jim's Antennas Kingborough in Tasmania, was recently asked to relocate a tv antenna for a customer in Old Beach, as it was suspected to be causing water damage to a houses ceiling. When Grant removed the antenna mount he found the tile cracked as seen in the photo. What made maters worse was that holes for the mounting screws were drilled in the valley of the tile. This is were the majority of water flows on any roofing material and in this case it resulted in damage to the ceiling. Any roof penetration in the valley of roofing or where water can pool, regardless of how well it is sealed is a leak waiting to happen. All sealants deteriorate in time from the sun and movement of the roof from expansion and contraction with changes in temperature. This is why selecting the right antenna mount is important.

  • MPEG4 Step 1

Having issues getting the new Freeview Channels?

As you may now be aware a number of new channels have been added to the 7 and 9 networks such as 7 Flicks and 9 Life. The broadcasters have changed the signal type for these “ new “ channels to Mpeg4 and many older TVs are not able to decode this signal type. Please note- a few models of Panasonic TVs have the facility to add Mpeg4 and AVC audio signals , thus allowing you to retune your TV to include these otherwise missing signals. Please follow the steps shown in the above photos. Other TVs do not have this facility . If you do not have one of these TVs or have trouble retuning your TV you may require one of our technicians to come and offer some advice on how to overcome the problem. Please call Jims Antennas on 131 546 for prompt service and professional advice.

Where Do They Keep Their Wings?

Earlier yesterday, while driving through grade A fire risk territory in country Victoria, my two little girls thankfully dozing peacefully in the rear seats only 30 minutes or so into our 700K schlep back to Gundaroo, NSW, the car decided it was prime time to play its bi-annual game of 'silly buggers'. An hour later we'd (inadvisably) limped on to the Woolies Caltex in Mernda. I'd called around 5 different local (and local-ish) mechanics and the best offer of the two that "might" be able to "have a look at it some time today" was the Repco 4-5Ks away in Doreen. Relatively close in distance, but it might have well been 500Ks as the advice was not to drive on peril of the engine doing itself some "real damage" and us not being members of the NRMA. Yet. The girls were doing their best in the air-con relief of the [...]

Wall Mounting TV for Children’s Safety

Jim's Antennas was recently called to a house in Glen Iris, the customers concern having young children in the home was with the TV sitting on the window bench and Foxtel connected with loose cables, so the TV may tip over with the children playing around it.
