Television interference studies for wind turbine installations

We are able to provide you with comprehensive and scientifically meaningful reports regarding the effect (if any) your wind turbine project will have on television reception in the surrounding area. This includes baseline surveys before construction commences and confirmatory surveys after the turbines have become operational.

We can assess post-construction complaints from individuals objectively, referring back to the baseline study where necessary. We have a great deal of experience of dealing with the public regarding TV reception, and have a good understanding of the social as well as the technical aspects. We are prepared to attend public meetings if required.

In cases where it can be shown that the turbines might cause TV reception problems we can calculate potential amelioration costs. This is based on our pre-construction survey and the figures will be available to you before construction starts. We also give details of the most cost-effective way of providing amelioration in each individual case, choosing from the various alternative solutions. We have intimate knowledge of the TV aerial and satellite industry and in cases where work is necessary we can oversee it and help you obtain the best deal. Needless to say this can save a great deal of money.

Our reports are written in plain English with the minimum of technical jargon and are intended to be accessible to all readers. Our emphasis is on clarity and practicality rather than theory. Although we include the technical background the actual conclusions are presented in non-technical terms. The reports are written by Bill Wright, who has been contributing to specialist and non-specialist publications since 1978. The reports include many explanatory diagrams and maps, which are professionally prepared. The reports are typically 35 to 50 A4 pages (depending on the complexity of the case). In addition we provide a glossary and other appendices where appropriate. Reports can be supplied either electronically or on paper. Four typical pages are reproduced in this PDF file.
