I posted a similar question about this a while back, however I decided to repost, because I've got another question on this.
Long story, we were in the Waikato (Whangamata) for a few days this week. On the drive home, we tuned into Classic hits 98.6fm in Whangamata, and we expected the signal to drop out as soon as we approached the Bombay hills. However, we all got quite surprised, because the signal didn't drop out at all, we can still pick up the FM signal here well into West Auckland. From both the Waikato Life FM station, and Classic hits. I haven't tried others yet. Although it works better in the car. The system in the house will get it better, if I had to get a proper FM antenna for it...
I just want to know why can you pick up FM from that transmitter, so well into Auckland?
This would be expensive, (and not worth it) but if I got the right antenna boosting equipment, would I be able to receive Freeview from that Te Aroha Transmitter?
