Dodgy TV gets chilly re­cep­tion

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

EIDSVOLD res­i­dents don’t get too in­volved in a foot­ball game or a thriller on the tele­vi­sion.

Tele­vi­sion view­ers there will tell you that free-to-air tele­vi­sion sta­tions are hit or miss at best.

Town res­i­dent Susan Kir­win said on Sun­day there were no com­mer­cial chan­nels, and a scratchy ABC.

“Been wait­ing all week to see an ad­ver­tised topic on Sun­day Night evening pro­gram and no re­cep­tion,” Mrs Kir­win said.

“Beyond up­set, please help,” she said.

Other Eidsvold res­i­dents have re­ported they have not had any free-to-air TV since the re­tune sev­eral weeks ago. Karen Bolanac lives just out of Eidsvold and said since the re­tune she hadn’t had any re­cep­tion at all.

Liv­ing right in town, Tom Tow­ell said he had his antenna tuned and it had made no dif­fer­ence.

“Some days we get an ex­cel­lent pic­ture and then it just goes off,” he said.

“Other days we only have the ABC. The sys­tem has been no good from the start.”

North Bur­nett Re­gional Coun­cil has re­ceived com­plaints about the sys­tem since its in­cep­tion, but an at­tempt to lift the aeri­als to fix the sig­nal has failed to help.
