Antenna Installation Gold Coast

So what’s wrong with the TV reception? It’s a nice new set, but the picture is terrible. Well, there are a few things that could be wrong. The set might be new, but how old is the cabling going up to the antenna? How old is the antenna itself? How well sited is it? Did your reception go downhill right after the neighbours built that big new extension?
Most problems with bad reception can be sorted out, or at least improved. It’s not a job for amateurs, though. If you don’t know exactly what you’re doing, it’s easy to waste a lot of time and money without getting any results. You need an expert that can take care of the following:
• Pick the best place for your antenna
• Choose the right antenna – given a whole host of variables
• Mount it properly so it won’t move around
• Set up a good connection to your television.
As part of the switch over to digital broadcasting, the government has set up the Antenna Installer Endorsement Scheme (AIES). To get accreditation under the scheme, the installer has to either pass an assessment of their technical knowledge or show certificates from a nationally recognized training program. Getting an AIES installer to set up your antenna is ideal. The program is not compulsory, so not all installers are covered by it. Make sure, though, that your installer is accredited.
That’s where Local Bloke Antenna Services steps in with their highly trained, Government certified, consummate professionals. If you’re a Gold Coast resident and need a new antenna, Local Bloke can do it for you. All their technicians are AIEC accredited. With the switch to digital coming up, Local Bloke is making sure everyone is ready. All the antennas they install are digital-ready, as is their cabling. They also carry out digital signal strength testing on every job to help find the best solution for your TV reception problems.
What can Local Bloke do for you? If your existing antenna installation needs repair, or you need a new one installed, they can do that for you. If you’re having trouble with reception, one of their experts will do a diagnostic survey, find out what the problem is and come up with a plan to improve it. They can also install all the required cabling in new houses or set up digital antennas for multi-occupancy buildings and commercial premises. It’s not all about antennas either; they can troubleshoot and install home theater systems, set you up for satellite TV and even install new TV sockets in your home.
If you go with Local Bloke, there are other benefits apart from their qualified technicians. Before you commit to a job, you can call them for a free quote or advice about what you need. All their work comes with a five-year guarantee, giving you confidence in a job that will last. And another important thing is, like their name says, they’re local blokes. You’ll be dealing with a Queensland family business that you can trust.
