Digital rain?
Why does my digital signal disappear when it rains?

And how do I make it come back?

Not completely technically literate, but i have had it explaine to me in the past. Something about water being kind of like an insulator. The more there is, the more it blocks. Fog will make it fuzzy, heavy rain will cut the signal. As vegitation between the source and reciever dries out, the signal will return. At least thats my uneducated understanding.

Do you REALLY want me to make a suggestion?

Only if it is a technically wonderful suggestion, that would also help me to watch Quantum Leap and ER on More 4!!

I am out tonight :o(

Do you have any P2P or bittorrent software installed?
redlillymodel From: redlillymodel Date: February 23rd, 2006 02:58 pm (UTC) (Link)
Probably not - this a temp computer at the moment till I inherit my pa's old computer. Just moved house so everything is a bit topsy turvey!

*nods* When you get settled details can be ironed out.

Be well.

I am sorry - I am still living in boxes at the moment, work hunting and putting up shelves - which is this afternoon's job!

Because DVB reception in Cambridge(shire) is, generally, shite. You could try getting a bigger aerial, pointing your aerial more directly at the transmitter (Sandy Heath, probably - there's a site out there that will tell you what bearing to be at; let me know if you want me to dig it out), or a masthead amp.

We have thought about a new aerial - where is the best place to buy one?

Try maplin.

Hope things are good with you. Where are you living these days?

Still in Cambridge... bought a house with my man! Scary but happy!
