Man Shed Transformed Into Home Theatre Room

One of our Victorian franchisees Lee was called in to help a customer transform his old garage into a home theatre and music room recently.

The customer had all the gear and had already soundproofed the new room.
Mounting the projector and setting up the amplifier for home theatre as well as helping with the Marshall guitar amps was just some of the work Lee completed.

Looks like plenty of hours will be spent in this new “man shed”!

Adam gets off to a flying start with a new Franchise

After 10 years on the frontline as a Victoria police officer, Adam Bartel decided upon a career change with a focus on lifestyle. After assessing his options Adam decided that a career in digital communications was for him. With a passion for technology and the digital communications industry, Adam saw a Jim’s Antennas franchise as an opportunity to do what he loves.

Rather than risk establishing an independent start-up business, Adam selected a Jim’s Antennas franchise as his preferred business model. Adam says, “I looked thoroughly at the options I had available to me. I considered going it alone, but decided upon the franchise model. Jim’s Antennas stood out to me due to brand power and reputation”. Adam continues, “From day one I knew I made the right decision. The professionalism of my franchisor and his team has been great and the training has also been outstanding”.

Adam attended Jim’s […]

Mounting an antenna on a chimney

Luke from Jim’s Antennas Shepparton was called to a house in Shepparton as the owner said his digital TV antenna signal had dropped out. Unfortunately the TV was not picking up any channels and the owner had arranged for guests to attend to watch the AFL grand final.

After testing the TV wall point and finding that the signal was indeed low, Luke got onto the roof to locate the antenna as it wasn’t visible from ground level. When he got to the top of his ladder he discovered the problem: the antenna had been blown over and took part of the chimney that it was mounted to.

The antenna was quite old and had been mounted to the chimney with a metal chimney kit. This type of installation is not recommended because, as you can see, strong winds have caused movement which has weakened the mortar securing the brick work.

The end […]

Antenna Installations in Shepparton

Luke, of Jim’s Antennas Shepparton, specialises in dual antenna installations. Luke notes, “depending on your location, you may be able to receive all free to air broadcasts from Shepparton as well as Bendigo.

If you are living in the Shepparton area but you’re also wanting to receive the local channels from Bendigo, then this is the option for you”. Luke carries quality digital TV antennas that can be installed on the one mast, as seen in the attached image. Luke continues, “One antenna will obviously face the Bendigo transmission tower and will pick up all channels broadcast from that location. The other antenna will face the Shepparton tower and will obviously pick up all channels from Shepparton”.

Luke will explain how to switch between signals on your TV so that you have the best TV viewing possible. The more free-to-air channels you can receive the better and this may allow you to […]
