DISGRUNTLED Noosa tennis fan Greg said his intended hit of Wimbledon was double-faulted by poor digital reception.
"I wonder what the advertisers would say if they knew that a significant proportion of the alleged viewers couldn't actually see their ads?" he said.
"Whoever advertised for the first five days of Wimbledon wasted their money on me."
Peter, from Lake Macdonald, said: "We are still on analogue although our DVD/VHS player allows digital transmissions to be received.
However, while the digital reception is good on still, clear days but very poor on other days, we stick with analogue. Channel 7 is poor but all the other four channels are fine."
Another resident lamented: "On wet weather and windy days, our reception is dreadful, especially local channels.
"Have had someone into look at the antenna - our reception is usually dreadful.
"Would love to feel part of the Noosa area."
Local man Allan said: "We experience 'loss of signal' (this message is displayed at the time) for probably no more than a 10-second interval frequently, on a daily basis. Some days seem to be worse than others. "We find WIN is the worst, but it happens on all digital channels.
"It always seems to manage to drop key words when you are following a conversation.
"On very windy days, it seems to make loss of signal worse.
"We have had a digital splitter box installed (replacing the analogue one) and replaced all antenna cables to all the outlets with a higher insulation code to reduce interference.
"We had the antenna checked to make sure it was on the best location on the roof and pointing in the right direction.
"This did make some improvement to the clarity of the picture, but did not solve the loss-of-signal problem.
"We were hoping once the analogue was shut down, the digital signal would be increased to solve the problem ... We have exhausted all avenues to make an improvement to the reception."
