Causes of External Interference

There are a number of things outside of your home that can cause interference in your radio or television. One of the most notable is lightning. When electrical disturbances occur in the environment they impact the broadcast signal. This will often result in crackling and popping sounds or bright flashes on the TV screen.

Common occurrences in the utility's system can cause interference as well. Loose connections, damaged or aging equipment and dusty insulators are a few of the conditions causing electrical noise from the outside world.
