Stage 2 of the Gan Gan TV transmission upgrade took place yesterday (Thursday 10). Early assessments suggest that combined impact of the two changes has significantly improved the quality of the received signal in the Cove. In theory the changes should have produced a 6dB improvement and it seems that, in practice, something around that level has been achieved

Is your TV aerial pointing at Gan Gan? Last Friday (20th November) was the first of two planned upgrades to the transmitter on Gan Gan Hill near Nelson Bay. These upgrades are part of a $450,000 project announced in August to improve TV reception around Port Stephens.

The attached minutes give Bob's suggestions in some detail.

Thanks again to all those residents who have completed the telecommunications survey over the past 2-3 weeks. The full analysis is not yet complete and some additional completed surveys are still coming in, but here is a brief outline of some points already evident.

Your input is needed!dougkFri, 20/03/2015 - 6:28pm

In 2015 you would think that all parts of Australia should have access to good communication services. But, do all residents of North Arm Cove have good access to mobile phone coverage and reliable TV, Radio and Internet? It certainly appears that some don't - but we need more details. If you live in the Cove we would like you to complete a short survey . Whether you have perfect reception and connectivity or not we need to know. It will give us a better grasp on the extent of the problems and how they may be...
