Most probably LTE interference from cellphone towers that affect the stronger local channels.Live in Laval (Fabreville area). I have a cheapie outdoor antenna (Prime Cables) pointed to Mount -Royal on the roof which gets all Montreal based channels. The only channel that gives me difficulty is CTV 12.1 (of course, happens to be the one I watch the most) I get a little pixilation and sound drops but the signal strength seems OK 62 percent (although with errors) In fact there's a few other channels under 50 percent that are super clear. Anyone else, or anything I can try to fix this?
It highly unlikely that LTE would cause interference to VHF channel 12. It is more likley that there is local electrical interference.
Are you using a pre-amp or drop amp with your antenna ?Funny you ask. Yesterday and today 12.1 seems to be okay (no errors), but 10.1 seems to be pixelating. It's nothing crazy, still watchable, just annoying. My strength is about 75 percent but getting errors occasionally. In contrast, 47.1 which is my weakest channel at 45 percent is super smooth.
Yes, there's a tower less than 500 meters from me which has 3 different cell phone providers. I can't find any LTE filters locally, so i'll have to order one online. Any good canadian based suppliers you can recommend.[/QUOTE]Are you using a pre-amp or drop amp with your antenna ?
Did you check how many 4G/5G towers are around your antenna with the map I listed ?
Telus has been busy installing thousands of them around Montreal and the surrounding in the past 2 months.
Do you use a pre-amp or drop amp ? If you do the situation will get worse as those LTE signals will overload your TV's tuner with local channels that have a strong signal and less so for further channels in the US, but it will also play havoc with very weak channels from the US like ABC 22.1 and Fox 44.1.Yes, there's a tower less than 500 meters from me which has 3 different cell phone providers.
