Bought a winegard wingman UHF booster and got to
try it out this weekend.
As soon as my jacks were set I climbed up on the roof to
attach the wingman. I pulled out the existing feet on my antenna
and then noticed my refrigerator top vent is right in the way!
If I permanently attach the wingman it will sit down right on
top of the 'fridge vent when the antenna is in the down position
I climbed back down and grabbed a couple of extra large rubber
bands. I was able to simply slip a doubled rubber band over
each end of the antenna and then up onto the base of the wingman.
This held it securely enough to last the weekend.
I had the TV on a digital station that was coming and going before
"installation" and when I tried the wingman, the station was pretty solid.
It dropped out once or twice during a half hour program when before
it was dropping every few seconds.
The wingman does work on UHF stations (those above channel 13)
but you need to check your roof for obstructions near the antenna
in the down position.
The wingman mounts under the antenna and sticks out about 8-10 inches
on the side opposite the mast.
I guess I now have another thing I have to do every time we setup
and take down
We'll only use it if we have "iffy" stations but that's nearly all the time!!
It's a good thing my trailer has a built on ladder or this gizmo would
be for sale today!!
