I have a problem with Freeview intermittent interference. When my son goes into his bedroom (room located directly under the loft aerial) the picture on all our 4 Freeview TV's begin to break up badly.
Got him to turn his mobile off the other night and the problem seemed to go away.

We have Freesat in the living room which work great - no problems at all.

I have a fairly new digital aerial and Triax Wolsey WFAV425 masthead amplifier (mains powered) which I fitted in the loft prior to DSO when the signal was very weak.

Picture break-up seems to happen randomly, whenever he's in his bedroom - not just when he's using his mobile. When he's out of the house everything works fine - no interference at all.

I guess I don't need the powered amp now so should I remove it? what would you recommend I use to connect all the coax terminals back to the aerial?

Any other advice on this problem would be most welcome

Hi jb,

The post code is OX14 (Abingdon)
I'm pretty certain the amp is set to mid-way on gain. I will put it onto the lowest setting when I arrive home tonight to see if that makes any difference.

Many thanks for the quick response (OX14 Ab)

Hi again jb,
Turned down the gain on the masthead amp from 20dB to 10 dB The problem has now gone. Many thanks for suggesting this.

Its so nice to have a great picture once again free from interference.
