In March of this year, a new TV transmitter was switched on at Kurrajong Heights. A television transmitter is a device which broadcasts an electromagnetic signal to the television receivers. Put simply it sends the signal to your TV antenna.
The rationale for installing the transmitter was to address dead spots and reception problems in North Western Sydney. Many people living in the Hawkesbury district and Blue Mountains have had to resort to paying for Foxtel just to access free to air TV channels. Other homeowners have resigned themselves to the fact that they will always have poor TV reception.
