King auto antenna

I just purchased a KING VQ 4100 auto antenna for DirecTV Standard definition at the Frog rally in Goshen.

Always a PITA with the tripod, SWIM system setup for TV use. The King antenna works pretty good. I was told at the time I purchased the King antenna (owners manual said it will too) the factory rep said it would work with the SWIM system. I purchased the extra items on E-bay that was needed for the SWIM system. For me it would not work.

I finally purchased a standard definition receiver that was not for the SWIM system. I contacted DirecTV, activated the receiver MOD D-11. It works
like a champ. The system will not receive my local channels but I am told
if I purchase another Item from KING, it will work. If I need the local channels, I will put up my roof mounted antenna to receive the locals.

Now, I guess I have moved into the lazy way of setting up my antenna by just placing the KING antenna outside with the back pointed north & hooking the coax to it. Turn everything on. Presto standard definition TV.

DirecTV will supply you with a refurbished receiver for about $70.00. The receiver I purchased on E-bay with a power cord and remote, card for $44.00.

I purchased a 75' long plastic coated cable for a dog run cable for $24.00
from Lowes that I can secure the antenna to the camper. It also has a 12'
cable in the same package.
