Digital HDTV Antenna

I have on my 2015 Wind Jammer a Winegard Sensar lll. What would be the best upgrade to enhance the reception without changing the complete unit? I see Winegard makes a Wingman that appears to be able to attach to the shaft and also King Jack makes one to attach to the shaft as well.

Anyone do either of these? What was the cost and was it worth it? We do not want to go with satellite as we do not want the cost for the amount of TV we watch.

The wingman will improve reception a lot. I doubt you will do better with anything else. Get the App. "TV Towers" to help determine the direction of the stations in your area.

We have the Jack HD. Works well. Dealer through it in with the new trailer and replaced the wingman and just bolts on.

Will check with a few dealers to see what they have and how much. Thanks for all the replies.

Well after doing a lot of checking and talking with Winegard I am going to try the Rayzar Air replacement head and hope its not a waste of dollars.

Well put the Rayzar Air on and didn't seem to make a hill of beans difference
I guess if I was in an area that has more towers it would work better as it picks up from opposite sides. It did make one channel a little clearer but really not worth the dollars.
Oh well I guess I have wasted $100.00 on worse things.
