Now he's got two honey-dos. Mount the BR TV and put this new antenna head on.

I'm curious. Those of you reporting dramatic reception improvement with the Jack, what did you replace? The plain Sensar or the Sensar/Wingman combo?

A real, working amplified Winegard with Wingman is far superior to the Jack, except for UHF reception, where they're about the same.

Flame away, but it's been proven time and time again. You need "Meat" for VHF reception.

That's kinda what I'm thinking too. Have you tested both? Since the Jack replacement head is under $40 right now, I'm thinking of buying it just to do an A-B comparison. If nothing else, I'll have a backup antenna.

In my case I can't add the wingman the antenna is too close to the ac and won`t fit. My wingard doesn`t seem to be picking up anything except whats 10 miles away.

I also had interference with the Wingman in the down position. I posted the solution I used on our RV in April, 2013 under "Reverse Wingman installation".
