|How KAT5 Started
The development of KAT5 started out of the frustration of being unable to find enough UHF channels free of interference so that I might distribute my Satellite Receivers and Video Recorders to every TV in the home.
Where I live on the East Coast, I suffer quite bad interference from continental TV stations during the summer months. There are also frequent occasions when I have been able to receive many UK TV signals from transmitters in other parts of the country due to the atmospheric conditions. This makes it extremely difficult to obtain a good picture and sound at these times.
With the introduction of Stereo Sound on Satellite and NICAM Stereo on Terrestrial TV, I also wanted a means of maintaining the high quality audio as well. (The RF modulators in Satellite Receivers and Video Recorders only output Mono Audio).
