It is a well-known fact that spinning wind turbine blades greatly interfered with television reception, when the old-style analogue TV signals were in use.
The problem mainly arose when a wind farm was built in between the TV transmitting mast and the homes of the recipients.
In some cases, TV reception was completely ruined, with a thick black line appearing on the screen, each time a turning wind turbine blade cut the signal.
This used to drive many viewers in Wales to distraction.
Of course, we have now switched to digital television. The wind energy companies claim that there are no TV signal problems involving wind turbines with the new system.
However, I have recently heard that many people in Wales have been having serious TV reception difficulties.
I wonder how widespread the problem has become.
Therefore, I would be grateful if any readers who are experiencing digital TV signal difficulties involving wind turbines would inform the rest of us of their problems via the columns of your journal.
With thousands of new wind turbines up to 470 feet in height proposed all over the UK, this could soon become a major problem.
It seems that the one thing the general populace of this country will not tolerate is the loss of Coronation Street, EastEnders, X Factor and Strictly Come Dancing !
