  2. Ahhhh, let me see, I'll look up my data base of all the internet users
    digital phones. Hmmm, strange I don't have yours on record. Does it look
    like a brick with a long antenna?? If so, you cant get digital radio.

    You were able to get an AM/FM hand held radio for $20, now a digital is $100+

    If the digital radio reception is as bad as digital TV, we are going backwards at a great rate of knots.

    Only way I can get good reception TV in Tullamarine, right next to an international airport, is to have cable TV.
    Digital simply doesn't work.

    What happened to technology progress in this area?

    Cheers Don...

    a lot less on eBay, from about $30 from overseas sellers
    If the digital tv signal drops below a certain level, you either get
    pixilation or you get nothing, unlike analogue where you will still get
    a (bad) picture, so I'm guessing that with a digital car radio it will
    keep cutting out if the signal level drops too low, which will be
    extremely frustrating
    that seems to be a common thing
    but analogue transmission can't supply the high resolutions that digital
    can afaik
    the Labor government has promised to upgrade police (and SES too I
    think) communications in country areas to digital, but the cops are
    saying it won't work well due to the 'line of sight' reception that
    digital requires. hills and bushland will prevent that, they're saying

    how much resolution does a "roger that "demand ?
    the labouring govco promises a great deal ,

    only thing they get right is pissing away billions ,

    line of sight is about it so country wise digital will have issues

    Guess again, it doesn’t.
    Which might just be why it doesn’t.
    Nope, very uncommon indeed actually.
    Or the multiple streams either.
    Bullshit it does.
    They don’t have a fucking clue.

    so what happens then when the signal level drops? when driving around
    surely the digital signal level would rise and fall, like the analogue
    signal does
    I guess you don't have much experience with digital tv then. lots of ppl
    have pay tv just so they can get good reception easily. I recall someone
    who called his digital STB 'The Pixilator'
    so you know better what they need/want than they do

    a (bad) picture, so I'm guessing that with a digital car radio it will
    I have digital radio installed in my car, and it seems to work fine most
    of the time, much better than (UHF translator) digital TV at my home,
    which is in the foothills of the Dandenongs in Melbourne).

    There are one or two areas in my suburb where the digital radio signal
    disappears, and it doesn't work in the toll road tunnels, but on the
    whole, it's better than I expected.

    It doesn’t drop enough to be a problem.
    Yes, but just like you don’t get dropouts with normal analog
    radio, you don’t have a problem with digital radio either.
    Guess again. We turned off our analog TV well before you
    lot did and those who previously had a problem getting an
    adequate analog TV signal because they were behind a local
    hill in the shadow from the TV transmitters found that they
    now get a much better TV service than they had before.
    Just a fucked STB.
    Yep, been doing it since before they were even born
    and a mate of mine installed all that stuff in this area.
    And another mate of mine runs the local SES too.
    And another one did that stuff for the cops before
    he eventually left the cops and joined the spooks.

    The line of sight claim is pure pig ignorant silly shit.

  18. What antenna have you got? TV bandwidth has been squozen down to fit in
    more phone and LTE...

    In Sydney, all the digital TV channels are duplicated between VHF
    (177.5-191.6MHz) and UHF (529-564MHz) except for the ABC, which is only
    on 226.5MHz. At least that's what I see with my RTL2838-based USB DTV
    receiver.

    So here, you only need two fairly narrow bands (530-565MHz, and 226MHz)
    and with a reasonable Yagi you'd be set.
