Got to turn on the booster usually located near antenna wiring. Should see a red light come on otherwise no reception.

Did it ever work ?

Not sure where you are but let's assume somewhere in the US - you should first try out in an urban area with strong signals - you may have to push the amplifier button - on the wall plate next to the jack - a light will glow when on.

Your TV also has to have a digital tuner to get anything or a converter box if your set is old.

Set your TV to AIR (not CATV) and try to auto program channels - you 'should get at least a few channels.

Good luck.

Denis

PS. If you're in Canada - analog it still available until 2011. NO converter needed or digital tuner, digital broadcasts are available but analog is still around.

We were getting 6 digital channels in our driveway. Two weather, two Spanish & two barely watchable local channels. (Northeastern PA)
We only received two analog channels before the conversion.
In my local RV dealer I saw a new device, Wingman® RV-WING UHF Add-On for $23.
It promises to double your channels. I was skeptical but decided to pick one up.
It took 30 seconds to install on my existing antenna.

Holy cow! We’re getting 20 stations in my driveway with the antenna down.

3 Happy Campers, are you using a DTV converter in addition to the Wingman?

Negative - straight to the factory 32" Konka digital LCD TV that came with the Sierra & the 19" Sony digital LCD TV we bought for the bedroom.
I have to say even though we have all these channels there's still nothing on worth watching!

Another dumb question. When you describe the 2 TVs as "digital" does that mean they're DTV compatible?

This whole DTV changeover thing is greek to us Canadians. Besides I've had satellite TV for several years now.
