New television signals arrive

Improved television service in time for test matches and christmas shows.

Good news for residents of the Gemfields with better TV reception coming their way thanks to upgrades at the broadcast huts in Anakie, Sapphire and the Willows.

‘With these improvements, residents will notice better reception with a stronger signal, clearer picture, and hopefully less breakdowns in the future,’ Central Highlighlands Regional Council General Manager Communities John McDougall said.

All three broadcast huts will get the most current model receivers and transmitters, and upgraded telemetry from 3G to 4G.

The Willows will also receive a higher antenna, and Sapphire will receive new amplifiers and a new satellite receiver so that all 3 huts are equally reliable.

Upgrades were expected to be completed in before Christmas.
