How To Apply for VAST

Before you call us to book in your installation it is a good idea to first apply to VAST for registration. VAST admin check your home position against a map of where they have determined if where you live should get normal digital free to air TV services or not.

Check online then Iwire can assist you with FAST VAST Satellite Installation Service in Tweed Heads usually within a couple of days.

Why Free To Air TV Is Not Really Free and What This Has To Do With VAST?

Free to air TV is not actually free. Someone has to pay the costs to keep a TV station running. It is through sponsorships or advertising fees that they raise revenue. So if advertisers don’t get their ads seen they wont pay for advertising.

No Ads?

With VAST you will NOT get the normal local ads you would see on your TV through normal Digital TV Transmission. And that is why not everyone is allowed commercial TV through VAST.

Instead of an ad you may get a video of a country town with birds on a river and scenes of the town.  That scene ends once the TV show continues or you may get an ad from the Northern Territory.

You May Need To Prove Your Request

Normally Tweed Heads Shire has good normal terrestrial TV reception and as such you will not be granted registration UNLESS you can prove your case. What the VAST admin people cannot see is the amount of trees around your property that can block normal terrestrial digital signals.   Eventually though if you persist you could get registration.

Travellers will need to fill in a temporary travellers certificate.

We Can Install On The Spot

Iwire carries on board equipment to install or repair your VAST system on the run.

We carry a choice of satellite dishes depending on the level of gain you would like. Larger dishes give a higher gain which are better when there is cloud or storms. As the satellite transmitter is about 15,000 km away, the signal reaching earth is very low and so thick clouds could block signals.

We often install either AALTECH or Sat King satellite digital decoder boxes.

Why Does Pixelation Happen in Tweed Heads and What Can be Done About It?

Whether you live in Tweed Heads, Piggabeen, Currumbin, Tugun, Pottsville, Kingscliff or Banora Point, pixilation is when your tv picture breaks up into little squares and you hear blips and blurps instead of clear sound.  Your television reception is governed by the signal strength and quality of data that your television receives through your digital TV antenna or aerial. So to get you perfect TV reception from your aerial or antenna certain criteria must be met.

Some Causes Of Pixilation

You need a certain minimum signal to carry the data from your aerial to your TV.  If your signal is not high enough then the data to give you a good clear picture cannot make it through.  This can definitely affect your tv reception.

Then there is the data that I just mentioned.  It is the mathematics behind telling your television how to make the picture and sound.  If there is data missing then you will get pixelation as the TV goes from data it can read, past the missing data and back to the data it can read.

Over signal is another cause of pixelation and poor tv reception.  Often I find installations where clearly no signal amplifier is needed but one has been installed.  It could be that someone other than a TV antenna Installer has done the job or the homeowner or a unscrupulous TV antenna man…or some ill-informed or under trained installers like some franchise operators trying to take over the industry.

Has Your TV Antenna Man Got experience Or Someone Who Just Bought Into A Franchise?

Clearly there are now franchise operators in our area who read the marketing of the head franchisor and thought it a good idea to own their own business under the flag of the franchisor. There may be some of those operators who actually know what they are doing but it is more likely they have been trained to work for the head franchisor.  Similarly with some pay tv installers. They’ve been trained to just install and do not know what’s involved with television antennas and how to get great TV reception.

David Levine of Iwire Antennas A Local Owner Operator Specialising in TV Antennas Since 2000

Iwire Antennas is owned and operated by me… David Levine and has been since 2000.  Having  moved to The Pocket near Mullumbimby in 1998 then in 2011 moved into Kingscliff.  I have been carrying out digital television aerial antenna installations repairs and services I started specializing in TV Antenna Aerial reception work in 2000 and since then have focused even more to the Tweed Heads Shire Including Tweed Heads, Piggabeen, Currumbin, Tugun, Pottsville, Kingscliff or Banora Point.

Since specializing in TV antennas in 2000 analog TV has gone by the wayside in Australia and as you know digital TV is here to stay.  Some people complain that they’d prefer to have analog because the new digital causes them pixilation.  Thing is can you imagine how awful your TV picture would be watching a 60” TV on analog? It would be blurry and pretty much out of focus and no surround sound of course.

No Fix No Pay*

Clear and perfect TV reception is something I specialize in and if I cannot get you perfect picture then I do not charge!* conditions apply.

I have some customers ask if I can get them perfect TV reception by installing a new or repairing their antenna. Depending if they live in Including Tweed Heads, Pottsville, Currumbin, Tugun, Piggabeen, Kingscliff or Banora Point can make a difference and where within that area they are.  Perhaps their neighbor has no trees around them but your house is surrounded by lots of them so thick no signals can get through.  The only true way is for you to make a  booking and for me to come out and test your location.

I still Can’t get Good TV Reception

To get the best TV reception when you have a thicket of trees surrounding you or if you are in a low spot or valley or behind a hill in the shadows of your television transmission signals then there is always the VAST free to air satellite service.  VAST is only available to those who genuinely cannot get good digital TV reception.  Throughout the Tweed Shire be it Tweed Heads, Pottsville, Piggabeen, Currumbin, Tugun, Kingscliff or Banora Point.
