With numerous older homes combined with plenty of new high rise builds, issues with television reception in Southport is on the rise. But by getting the best antenna type for your Southport home, you can ensure the best possible television reception for your home.
Storm damage and age is one of the main reasons Southport residents don’t get good reception, however, there are several elements which play a part in this including:
Where in Southport you live – the more high-rise buildings surrounding you, the more interrupted your signal may be
What equipment you have in your home – all most homes need is a good quality antenna, a good cable and a good fly lead
Installation – ensuring your TV antenna is pointing to the correct TV tower is essential
Maintenance – you need to ensure your TV antenna isn’t rusty, broken or missing parts.

Some homes may need a signal booster, but we wouldn’t recommend just going and buying one hoping it will work. Masthead amplifiers work in areas of poor coverage – that is, areas where the signal is interrupted by trees, buildings or mountains. Distribution amplifiers, on the other hand, are best for homes with multiple televisions sets that are sharing the one antenna.
If we find that your signal is being interrupted by high-rise buildings, we can check whether you simply need to have your antenna re-aligned to point to the transmitter at Mount Tamborine, or whether we need to install a masthead amplifier.
