There are several excellent threads here on the forum about the change to "digital" broadcasting. One of the biggest issues, and hardest to understand by long time camper antenna users, is that while the old UHF frequencies were short range and it did not matter how you turned the antenna, the vewer digital signals are VERY directional. The VHF 3-13 channels were and still are directional and the bat wings must be 90 degrees to the station.
Since the change to digital (like 3.1 instead of 3) you must point the white plastic amp housing AT the broacast tower of the station you want to watch.
I use www.antenna
web.org to find the heading to point the white plastic head at.
If you want more RANGE from UHF and have a SENSAR Bat Wing Wineguard antenna on the roof, you can add their Wingman UHF booster to the existing antenna amp and it will increase your UHF range from 10-12 miles to 40-50 miles. Believe me when I say, the difference is incredible.
With the wingman installed you point the ELEMENTS of the Wingman at the tower (the plastic head is also pointed that way, but it is easier to visualize.
