Hi all,
I was just wondering how broadcast recievers (TV & Radio) react to a persons location in a room...?
Thanks,
John

I don't know too much about that. I suppose if you are walking around the room, your body is just one more thing the signal has to go through. If, however, you touch the antenna, the reception is sometimes actually increased. The human body seems to make a pretty good antenna in itself.

Some even better than others...do a google on S.L.I.D.E.R. phenomena.... On the rare occassion I encounter "bunny ears" on a tv, or a traditional radio, I create all kinds of havoc with it, hehe.... I'm one of those people that can't wear digital watches either (at least they aren't in style nowadays anyhow, hehe...)

It is true, the human body can have a very strong efect on transmitted signals.
I happen to make a great antenna amplifier. Whenever i touch and old wire antenna for radio-the signal picks up and cleans up ( much less static) very well. This is also true of antenna for tv's.
My understanding of this is based on the minerials in our body and such.
I have noticed this effect does not happen for ewveryone and for some people, the make the signal worse.

* Please note this is all based on imperical evidence (actually seen effect happen, as opposed to reading about it) *

I think almost everyone done. Remove the aerial cable from your tv and stick your finger in the coax socket on the back of the set and you'll get pretty watchable terrestrial reception. It's just not very comfy if you actually want to watch something, though!

This is the Paranormal Studies forum, do you have a question that would fall into that category? Or are you just asking a technical question about interference?

I believe the poster's inferring that there may be some paranormal force at work....vs. just science, so was looking for info.

As I mentioned with the SLIDER reference, it is actually a known phenomenon (which goes beyond such interference, into a very paranormal level). There was a CNN story about it a couple years ago. A waitress near London (named Debbie) was perhaps the most severe case, as she'd blow out all kinds of equipment, including electronic cash registers and major appliances.

While there is some scientific investigation going on regarding her, and the ability/curse in general, it's certainly paranormal in scope...

Myself, I seem to only affect watches, radios, tvs, light bulbs (go through about 3 a month, even with the 5 year ones) and streetlights...(which is pretty fun to freak people out with).

Perhaps if the original poster clarified?

Hi,
Sorry if I posted this topic in the wrong place... (I'm new to ATS & I love it!!!) feel free to move this post.

I just find it wierd that I'm the only one in the house that screws up the TV reception every time I walk into the living room. Call me kooky, but I don't subscribe to cable, or any TV service. I get all my news, and entertainment from the internet. My girlfriend, and daughter always watch VCR tapes. I have the best "Rabbit ears" that I could buy (RCA brand).

Thanks for the input.
John

No, No I just wanted to clarify the intent of your thread. The way it was worded I wasnt sure if it was a question for RadioShack or you thought it could be a paranormal experience. Its no biggie Im kinda slow. lol

I know what you mean

I cant wear a watch, it will go nuts in 2-3 days, I have a habit of blowing lightbulbs (I have done 2-3 in a day when mad), My monitor is only good for about six months and this is the first computer I have ever owned that lasted over a year. I glitch video games and just generally screw up ANY electric device I am around very long.

That's funny.


I'm always giving people shocks when I shake their hand. This happens even when I'm not wearing wool. I wonder what would happen if a shook a slider's hand.

I was searching for a way to fix my radio antenna since it is full of static unless I touch it and then it goes to full strength with 3 bars on the radio. Actually I don't have to touch the antenna but just move my fingers within a couple of inches of it. This is annoying me like crazy at the moment.

I found a satisfactory solution. I got some aluminum foil, folded it over and then bent it over the end of the antenna and my reception is now clear again. I don't really think too much about the so called slider stories anymore. There are just so many street lights that go on and off I figure it's just faulty light bulbs and/or bad wiring.

As far as amplifying the radio signal, I thought it was normal for everyone to do that when they touched antennas. Perhaps the bad reception I'm getting tonight is due to thunderstorms in the area. At least we don't usually have thunderstorms in January where I live at.

Speaking about weird things, anyone know how you could possibly turn on the water faucet with one hand and then get a shock of static electricity just before you touch the water with the other hand? I've done this many times and since I have a metal faucet, I was wondering about it as well. I hope this doesn't sound really strange.
