Sunshine Coast Restack & Retune; No Simulcast

The Sunshine Coast TV frequencies are changing. All Televisions need to be retuned.

 DULONG & TEWANTIN/NOOSA

The Nambour Coverage Area

The Television channels from the Dulong Transmitter (Nambour) and the Tewantin/Nambour transmitter will be changing on Wednesday 9th of July, and this will mean that every television (with antennas facing towards this transmitter) will need to be re-tuned after this time. Unfortunately it has been stated that there will be no simulcast of the channels (repeating the same channel on both frequencies for a period of time to allow for retuning) and for this reason, most of the Sunshine Coast will be advised to retune their own television. This should be completed as soon the possible after the channels disappear (you may have to wait some time for the switchover to take place and the new frequencies to be activated).

For those who live in the Southern parts of the Sunshine Coast (Facing towards the Bald Knob transmitter in Landsborough) the second change will take place over two days a week apart. The first change will be the Brisbane channels, which are only received by the southern half of the Sunshine Coast only, This will happen on Tuesday 15th July, and the local channels will be Restacked on the 22nd of July.

It is our advice to lose the Brisbane channels after the 15th July and just watch the local channels until they disappear too after the 22nd of July. Then you can retune and this means you only have to retune your television once.

 

 

INSTRUCTIONS

Instructions on how to tune your TV will be found in your TV manual. For all those who are able, we suggest you read that manual and attempt to retune your own TV after this Restack has been completed.

ANTENNA INFORMATION

The good news is that there is no need to change your antenna in most situations, as we continue to use the UHF frequency as we have before. If you have poor reception before the Restack, then you will continue to have poor reception and this antenna system will need to be looked at. Please call 1800 588 688 to discuss a booking time. retune antenna umx18

BACKGROUND INFORMATION The reason for this change, is actually a good thing, as it brings Australia inline with the rest of the world. Currently, our 4G network is up around 2100mhz, whereas the rest of the world (USA/EUROPE) have their 4G network operating on the 700mhz-800mhz range. This 700-800mhz range is currently being used throughout regional Australia for local TV channels (on the Sunshine Coast our ABC, local 7 and Win9 for example are all currently located here). After the Restack and Retune, the government will then sell these frequencies to the phone companies, and they will then move the 4G network down to these lower frequencies. This will, in the long run, make electronics cheaper by utilising the same technologies as the USA and other countries that are creating these. So in summary, it is a good thing that the Restack and Retune is happening, it will make our electronics life easier going forward.
