4G interference in Belfast. On RTE 2HD etc rf channel 56.
Most people who have Rte channels in Belfast will have a group CD mast head amplifier , this also in making the 4G signal which is on rf channel 63 wipe out or cause picture breakup on the Rte and normal BBC ,itv freeview channels .
I have changed a few headlamps as they were high gain ,mostly CD 1223 or even the old red CD supreme. I fixed these issues by fitting a Labgear outdoor 4g rejection filter and a CD1213 mast head amp. This should work as the Rte freeview from down south is now a good strong signal . You may not even need a mast head amp it depends on the set top box or tv you are using also which way or type off splitter there may be if the aerials are connected to feed more than one tv.
Also remember the more splitters and joints etc and cheap rf fly leads these cause big problems with reception issues.
Please email me if you have any 4G issues etc and I will try andadvise via email. We are the only CAI registered and approved installation company in Newtownabbey and Belfast .
Hope this is helpful.

I totally agree .who really needs a 52 element or 32 element or 18 element aerial
Remember use a good reliable independent installer all the time.
Large aerials should now not be required to receive freeview. If your installer is wanting to fit one off these then he is either being truthful or is ripping you off.
Freeview signals here in northern Ireland are very strong.
A small log periodic is great and my personal choice for my customers works great even in the roofspace .
