GLADSTONE residents would like to say goodbye to poor TV reception.
Since Central Queensland's switchover from analogue to digital television in December, residents have experienced problems receiving some channels.
In one such case, Calliope Caravan Park resident Jeff Resdale said he could not watch certain channels without losing reception.
"I have problems getting reception for Channel 10 and 7," Mr Resdale said.
"It's not very good when the TV cuts out halfway through a football game."
Having lived in Gladstone for the past 40 years, he said the problem was becoming a nightmare for some.
"The people next door have had problems too," he said.
On December 6 the Federal Government started the rollout of digital television to all centres in Australia.
The scheme aims to gradually phase out analogue television signals by 2013.
Two TV transmitters operate from Maunalor Hill, in Gladstone East, and Round Hill, in Gladstone West.
A signal also transmits from Mt Hopeful near Rockhampton.
Mr Resdale has since installed an aerial booster to his property, which he said had helped solve his problem.
A Federal Government Digital Switchover Taskforce spokesperson said some residents might have to replace their antennas if they were experiencing problems.
"You may need to replace your current VHF antenna with a new antenna designed to receive channel 12 from the Rockhampton tower," the spokesperson said.
"It is critical that people in the Gladstone area have the correct antenna, in good condition, pointing towards the nearest transmitter."
A list of endorsed antenna installers is available through mySwitch on the Digital Ready website digitalready.gov.au or phone the Digital Ready Information Line on toll free 1800 201 013.
