DTV/DAB+ wobblies

We have an older Panasonic DTV (that does HD) but the signal from Mt Dandenong is a bit borderline here (noise, pixelation). I added a 4G filter ahead of our antenna amplifier/splitter, got rid of the the 4G crud, but reduced the signal. Maybe time for a better VHF only TV antenna (cf Silicon Chip Feb 2018). We disn't have this much trouble when we had old fashioned steam analog PAL colour tv transmissions. Likewise DAB+ radio is very fussy compared to plain AM/FM..  
Still waiting on Telstra Business Systems to hook us upto the interwebs and get the phones reconnected...

temporary NBN

We now have a month-to month NBN connection via MyRepublic to save on the cost of Telstra 4G router connection (handy but slow - 200Gb limit). Still waiting on Telstra Business Systems to progress our phone porting and network connection..We'll see how it goes..
