    Hello!
    I'll move to a new apartment that is about 70yards from a TV antenna (Local Station) and a Radio Antenna.
    Can I have some interference in my HT equipments (speakers, TV, am/fm tunner, receiver and DVD)?
    If so, can I put some kind of filter to minimize this problem?
    Thanks for your help. I'm really worried about it!! No, I'm complety SCARED about it!!!!!!!!!!
    Rgs,
    Sérgio

    Sounds like you need some type of attenuator. You can go to sites like www.channelmaster.com and they make general signal attenuators , e.g. model 2806IFD which takes down all signals 6 db. There are also things like RF noise blockers that Audioquest sells and similar more generic things you can get. I think the Audioquest stuff is sold at www.audioadvisor.com. They are made to clamp on each end of power cords or analog cables. I would also talk to the radio station and ask for help. If they are good neighbors that can have somebody technical at least talk to you. There are also things like copper shielding tape that is relatively inexpensive you can get at places like Newark or Allied Electonics or other distributors. There may be companies that make attenuators for specific frequencies but I would guess if they are made that would not be as cheap as the other alternatives.
