External coax jack

With the antenna turned on. can I hook up a TV to my external cable jack and get the antenna signal through it? The jack is designed to hook up to outside cable as my TT has no outside TV hookups. Just a thought as I wanted to watch TV outside Sat. night but didnt want to run a cable through a window.
Anyone tried this?

Looking at the schematic for the Winegard, the cable in jack is disconnected when you turn the amp on. The switch is double throw, double pole, with one side used to apply power to the amp and the other used to switch inputs.

You might get a little "leakage" signal to the cable jack, but not enough, I'd imagine, for a decent signal.

The different models are all over the net. This one is typical.

You can see where the cable connection switches off when antenna is selected.
