    I Think that there is an Electricity Interference Problem Issues as to why all of US can't get a very good HDTV signals in the USA
    Everyone Should be able to recieve HDTV via a small indoor antenna, but with the Electricity Interference Problem issues we have to have an big rooftop Tv antenna, and sometimes the big rooftop antenna won't help it.

    Everyone in the USA needs to call you Local Electricity Power Company and let them come out and check if the power cable connections are tight and not damaged and or etc.
    Everyone Please share this info with all friends and family and or your neighbors


    I having a Electricity Interference Problem.
    And as a result i having problems receiving a good TV Picture & or No
    Picture at all on my TV Set.
    I heard that the Electricity interference could be on your Utility Poles
    outside, I heard that you would need to send out a repair crew to my
    location and to bring an meter and small directional antenna and locate
    the interference source. I heard that always in this case that you would
    need to check to make sure all of the Power cable connections are not
    loose on the poles, & check to make sure that the insulators are not
    crack, & check to make sure that the resistors and other components are
    not deteriorated and or replace them and or Fix any other Problem who is
    causing the interfernece.

    Electrical interference only occurs in the VHF band, especially on channels 2-5. Most DTV broadcasts are on UHF where the chance of EI is nill. Interference on DTV UHF is mostly from co and adjacent channel interference between DTV stations and Analog Stations. Once the transition finishes most interference in the UHF band will be diminished.

    Spurious emissions are responsible for a lot of the world's problems.

    Those spurious emissions also affect the Upstream portion of cable modem service since they also use a portion of the spectrum below ch-2, from about 20-40 MHz range. Ever had packet loss on your cable modem. Likely caused by these electrical bursts.

    HDTV isn't the only casualty of power line interference either. Ham radio operators have been victims of this for years now, and the ARRL and FCC has finally gotten around to making power companies pay attention to this.

    here's the letter the FCC writes to your power company (in the USA):

    You can include a copy of that letter as well in your complaint.
