Title: Does the Brookmans Park Transmitting Station present a health risk?
Post by: GWGCGWGC on February 19, 2004, 06:58:59 pm
I'm sure i'm not the only person in Brookmans Park to suffer this.I recently spent £1000 on a new computer and unfortunately when plugging in my 5.1 amplifier I'm hearing , very loudly sunrise radio through my speakers.Someone has informed me it could be  through the input leads.I've contacted the computer supplier who were most unhelpful.Has anyone else had this problem and could anyone point me in the right direction.Thanks

 >:(I HAVE THIS PPROBLEM TOO!!!!!!  also through my dolby digital processor - but the radio only comes through the processed channels for me - the centre and rear speakers, not through the main ones powered by my stereo.

I don't want to upset you, but I have tried almost EVERYTHING to get rid of it with no sucess yet, but I am still trying.

Next on the list is screened speaker cable and ferrite rings.  

MOving the equipment didn't help me (but did cost me lots of money to buy new cables).

Apparently there is a Radio Interference form you can get from the post office to complain about this sort of thing (don't try the village post office - they don't have any) but I haven't been able to get one yet.

This interference is driving me close to madness and I am not far from throwing the whole lot out the window or firebombing the radio station.  Can I second the motion that if anyone knows how to cure this I will pay handsomely!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Could it be something to do with the Brookmans Park Transmitting Station. There were a few posts regarding this in the site's old forum. Click here (http://www.brookmans.com/say/transmitter.shtml). Not sure they are relevant, but the problem was being discussed there four years ago.

It must surely be the BP transmitting station, I suppose the first thing you have to do is find out if they transmit that programme from there.

We used to get big trouble from radio waves over the telephone line until a kindly BT engineer gave me a couple of filter sockets. Once we got radio from a delicately balanced saucepan lid in the kitchen! Spooky!

On the same subject, we have great trouble in our household in getting CD players to work without interference, unless they are serious metal encased jobs (like the ones sold in Hi fi shops). Sometimes it helps if the thing is tilted or if the radio aerial is earthed to a window frame. Any ideas folks?

And I forgot to mention that when Queenswood School got their new organ a few years back, the switching circuitry kept going on the blink due to massive gamma rays (or something like that) coming from the transmitting station. The organ builder eventually lined the inside of the console with lead to overcome the problem.

So there's your solution Aidan, get across to Bryans, buy up a few dozen rolls of lead, and get sticking!

If it helps this is a list of stations that transmit from the Brookmans Park site as of 1998.

Radio Five Live (909khz)
Virgin Radio (1215khz)
Talk Radio (1089 khz)
and
SUNRISE RADIO (1458khz)

All use AM on medium wave.

You can get ferrite RF chokes from places like Maplin (I think there is one in Fleet Street, London). Or you could try the RSGB in Potters Bar, because they have pamphlets that are aimed at radio amateurs who sometimes end up with this sort of problem, too.

Post by: AgentOrange on February 20, 2004, 11:46:47 am
Lets be clear about this: the source of the interference is the transmissions emanating from the BP Transmitter Station. That makes it RADIO waves not gamma waves (the entire population of BP would be dead if they were).  :'(This is not a new problem by any means: neither are the solutions. The trick is to avoid long cable lengths as they can act as an arial to pick up the signal. Also avoid circular coiling of cables as this can amplify any demodulated radio signals: use figure of 8 coils. BT and other comms companies are used to dealing with this problem. The trick is to use an RF filter to knock out the transmission. I have one fitted to the terrestrial TV arial otherwise I would be watching 'snow' on the box. BT have a filter fitted on the telephone line to cut out Virgin radio. The TV shop in the village would be a good place to start. Shielding cables or equipment can be done but there are problems. The shielding on a cable is normally metal to block the RF signal but it too then becomes an arial. I use tinfoil covered cardboard between my video and DVD player to prevent interference. I would also watch the quality of any connections at the ends of cables: bad soldering can also demodulate a signal.
On another tack you could also write to the owners of the site, Crown Castle Transmission (the BBC sold the site in about 1998). They are causing the problem and the staff at the site have plenty of expereince in dealing with it. A friendly approach seeking their help may well get you some assistance in dealing with the problem. Hope this helps. ;)

Oh and I forgot to say that there is a clause in the deeds of most houses in BP that states you must not interfere with the operation of the transmitter site in any way - so as ide from the criminal aspect, forget firebombing!

Thanks for all the replies - obviously when I stripped the 30 year old paint off my lounge walls when I moved in, all that lead shielding that I lost is causing me troubles now...

I have been looking on Maplin and they do ferrite cores, so this should sort the problem out.

I will let everyone know my success rate (or otherwise)

:-) One is inclined to wonder if said agent mentioned it though, or would have done had he known... ;^)

Aidan, have you tried either shielded or balanced cable ?

Or, indeed, putting a low pass filter on the cable -  putting "low pass filter" into Google will return a fair number of hits (10+ pages) from which you can select your level of understanding and what you want to filter. They'll come with circuit diagrams so that you can build your own if you want - or at least so that you can go to a decent electronics shoppe and let them know what you're after.

I imagine on the estate agents sales doc for the flat it would have been written as "Excellent quality radio recepition in all rooms of the house"   ;D

Shielded cables are the next on the list, but I may take your advice and try the low pass filter first, sicne I'm sure this is going to be much cheeper...

Thanks,
Aidan

Praise the lord of all things Dolby - I'M CURED!!!

Crown Castle have made my month.  I wrote to their website and stated the problem, expecting to get a general 'Dear Person' reply.  But no, they mailed me back quickly, booked for two engineers from the transmitting station on the GNR to come round (they arrived to the minute today) and help with it.

They tried a few things out and had it sorted within 30 minutes.  "We've never been beaten yet" was what one of them said, and they weren't.

The problem, as it turned out, was an earthing one.  There was some [laymans terms] 'weird thing going on' between my DD processor and my main stereo amp.  By earthing the cases together whe problem imediately disappeared.  Bl**dy marvelous.

So for anyone else who suffers this problem, I strongly recommend getting in touch with them.

Also, out of interest, they told me, when looking at my ferrite rings with 4 to 5 turns of cable on them, that you need at least 30 turns to cancel out MW.  Shortwave interference (ham radio, taxi firms, etc) can apparently be sorted out with a lot less, but not MW.

Hope this is of help and interest to the long suffering folk of Brookmans Park...

Hi GWGCGWGC,

I have the mail from the lady on my work computer and unfortunately I am on holiday.  The best thing to do is to send me a personal mail (which will prompt me on my computer when i get back to work that a mail has been sent) and I'll happily send you the details then.  If you want to save time the the Crown Castle website has a "contact us" section.

But it's nice to sort these things out - I now don't have to listen to Bangrar when watching quiet bits in films.

Just another comment on a topic that was discussed quite a while ago - Radio Sunrise interference. All our telephones played it louder than any speaker, until all phone sockets had filters applied by BT. There is a new type of filter available that is more effective than the old ones, but BT does not fit this routinely.
Using voice-editing programs on the computer was a problem, since the microphone picked up the radio station rather our voices in front of it. This was solved by getting a specialised type of microphone, details long forgotten.
These problems are a pain but usually can be solved. Getting the address of Crown Castle is going to be helpful.

When I listen to Classic FM on the mains radio there is interference from time to time, which is most annoying.  When I listen on the Sky digital TV Radio channel for Classic FM there is no interference. 

I have now bought a mains DAB Digital radio and, to see what happens, I have listened to both the FM radio and DAB radio at the same time.  When there is interference on the FM radio the DAB signal disappears so no sound comes out of the DAB radio until the interference ceases on FM.

Does anyone know what is happening?  I have bought a DAB radio thinking it would overcome the problem but it hasn’t.

Hi Bob,

I have two DAB radios and both work fine. There is no loss of sound and I get an excellent signal. I live at the bottom end of Moffats Lane.

Hmmmm. Sounds like interference from the BP transmitter is being transmitted through the mains supply.  Again, a mains RF filter will more than likely stop this problem. I suspect that the Sky box has such a filter in it (they are snensitive to spikes in mains supply and supply drop outs). As per the earlier postings, a call / email to Crown Castle over at the transmitter station should get them on the case. I am not sure that a shop bought mains RF filter will do the job, but it could be worth a try for a few quid. Try Maplins or RS Components via the web. Or go straight to the horses mouth - so to speak! ;)

I recently bought a pair of BT cordless phones and suffered from strong radio interference.

I bought a couple of ferrite rings from Maplin as previously suggested but these had no significant effect.

I contacted the operators of the transmitter station who are now National Grid Wireless (Crown Castle are no longer the operator). They helpfully explained that the type of ferrite ring is important and the AM transmissions from BP are around the 1MHz frequency. The type of ferrite beads from Maplin have the wrong characteristics for these frequencies (they would be suited to higher frequencies such as CB radio).

I was supplied the correct ferrite ring which I had to tightly thread the power cable through 14-15 loops and am completely cured. They also provided an additional filter for the BT socket which although probably not necessary I used anyway.

If anyone else is having problems I suggest you contact the station - you can just call in to reception from the A1000 - National Grid Wireless couldn't have been more helpful.

Just an update on my previously reported problem, it turned out to be an old central heating boiler control panel at a neighbours house.  They replaced the boiler and there have been no problems since with my DAB radio.  The man from some organisation who came round to find the sourse of the problem said old boilers were a common source of interference.

Just for interest .... Nothing much changes.

I was born in BP in 1938 and lived at the very top end of Moffats Lane for 18 years. My Dad, a radio engineer, built me a crystal set, and the signal from the pylons was so strong that he tuned the aerial around my bedroom so  it would drive a loudspeaker (about 4" across). No batteries!!..........

We used to leave it on when we left the house to scare any intruders, but it didn't stop "our" burgular!!

We are intermittently suffering an interference 'spike' on digital channel 22 - which delivers ITV1, Channel 4 and a few other channels.  When the ‘spike’ is present, our digital TV’s state there is ‘no signal’, and we can’t watch that channel.

The local aerial company are researching this, but I wondered whether anyone else in the village was suffering too and whether anyone had identified a fix?

Thanks,

Post by: sasquartch on March 10, 2008, 09:45:58 am
Sounds like a local interference problem as I have not had any problems.

Any decent aerial company should be able to use a spectrum analyser to see if there is any interference around CH22, although if present, finding the actual source can be a challenge. Is the interference regular ? Can any pattern be determined, eg it drops everytime a car passes, or is exactly at the same time each hour ?

To get a decent digital signal you need a good Band-A aerial.

We all know that residents have suffered over the years from radio interference from the site in BP which affects telephones,tv's and indeed other equipment. I had thought that most of these problems had been dealt with when we formed a special committee to address this issue some years ago. Recently I have been told that the problem seems to have reoccurred in at least one household in the village.

Has any one else suffered from this ? I would like to know so we can try to help if possible

I had a digital aerial installed last year and watched the engineer test the signals. It was obvious that there is a localised interference with the 'London' transmission in my part of Brookmans Ave. We turned the aerial to pick up the 'Sandy' transmitter and hey presto no problems (other than getting local news from Cambridge rather than London).

It was obvious that there is a localised interference with the 'London' transmission in my part of Brookmans Ave. We turned the aerial to pick up the 'Sandy' transmitter and hey presto no problems (other than getting local news from Cambridge rather than London).

There is no such thing as a 'digital' aerial - all transimssions are analogue, the digital information is encoded within the signal. Many aerials are sold as such though and normally these are actually 'wideband' aerials which may or may not be required for digital channels.

An aerial is designed to cover a range of frequencies and in this part of Herts we are served by Crystal Palace more or less due south. All analogue and digital channels from Crystal Palace are in the lower range of the UHF band and a Group A aerial is the correct type to fit. Such an aerial has a high gain at these lower frequencies at the expense of little gain at higher frequencies (which we have no interest in in BP). A wideband aerial (which may have been described incorrectly as a digital aerial) will receive signals right across the UHF band but much less effectively than the correct Group A type that should be fitted in BP.

The fact that you say you now receive signals from the much more distant Sandy Heath transmitter (which DOES require a wideband aerial because of the frequencies used) indicates you probably do have a wideband aerial fitted. Any competent installer will know what the correct aerial to use is.

Another benefit of a grouped aerial (ie NOT wideband) is that having higher gain it is more effective in rejecting interference from directions other than the direction it is pointing. Therefore a wideband aerial will be LESS effective at rejecting interference from the side.

It is very unlikely that the transmitting station in BP is causing interference that would require a different transmitter to be required. The AM transmissions are at a frequency of around 1MHz, UHF TV is transmitted at 300MHz or so. I think whoever installed your aerial may not really understand the problems. It may be of course that there is an obstruction between you and Crystal Palace but that won't be anything to do with the transmitter. Possibly your aerial needs to be resited or use a different type of pole. Everybody in BP should be able to receive Crystal Palace OK with a correctly installed Group A aerial. Even people in The Gardens, probably the lowest elevation in BP can do this, you should have no problems in Brookmans Avenue.

If you are getting any work done by an aerial installer ask him which type of aerial he will use, what type of co-ax etc. If they um and er then find someone else who understands the business, look for a CAI member (Confederation of Aerial Installers I think) See http://www.cai.org.uk/ (http://www.cai.org.uk/) Installing a domestic aerial isn't rocket science but isn't quite as simple as just bolting an aerial to your chimney  :)

Call into the transmitter station and ask for technical advice.

You will probably find them very helpful.

n my experience AM radio interference can be solved by using ferrite rings (which the transmitter station supplied free of charge)

I get Indian radio down my phone so will be calling the station to try to sort.

Another thing i get is big break ups on my freeview Ariel reception.

I have had a new system installed when i moved in (4 months ago) but get transmission break ups on a daily basis.

This will entail the tv saying "no signal being recieved" or pixelating for a bit then recovering.

The engineer has come out twice and signal strength is great/he has also reun all cables to eliminate possibility of any cable fracture. do other people get this issue.

any help appreciated. ta BP

Post by: sasquartch on February 15, 2010, 04:02:59 pm
It is highly unlikely that AM transmissions from BP will have any effect whatsoever on Freeview.

A good aerial installer will use a spectrum analyser to check the signal strength of all multiplexes and check for interference.

It is still possible that equipment is at fault, for example if the RF signal is looped through a VCR or other box.

Ideally a good Band A (Not the cheap wideband aerials mis-sold as 'digital' aerials' - see my previous post) aerial should be installed.

hi All,

I battled with this issue for sometime when I bought the flat in the village centre - radio (correct, it is Sunrise) through my home cinema processor.  I had couple of chaps from the radio transmitting station come over to my house to try to work out what the problem was.

In the end we sourced it to the case of the processor picking up the radio.  I used the earth on my phono preamp (or the earth of any phono level connection would work) and wires to earth the case of the offending item.  It cleared up fine.

Hi Saffie, 

I have split your post from the thread about the Brookmans Park beacon (http://www.brookmans.com/forum/index.php/topic,2704.msg22066.html#msg22066) because the Brookmans Park Transmitting Station (http://www.brookmans.com/history/transmitting/transmittingstation.shtml) is a different site and discussing two separate facilities in one thread could get confusing. Also, there are a number of threads already dealing with this topic which I will merge with this thread to add the context of previous discussions.
