Buildings and TV Reception
Name: Mark D.
Can the erection of a new building (with steel supports),
affect the reception of t.tv signals and where can I find more info' on this.
Steel girders being conductors act as an antenna. That is the radio/t.v.
waves induce the electrons to oscillate in resonance and being grounded the
electromagnetic radiation is led to ground. This interferes with reception
because there are no longer any waves to oscillate the antenna you want them
