Just installed as an upgrade and am satisfied with the results so far. It works from two directions so less turning to find the signal.

I ordered the Jack upgrade from Amazon. Same price as CW(they had on sale), but I got in two days and no tax/freight. Very happy so far

I brought one from CW a couple of years ago. It did pick up tv channels but I learned it designed for those without antennas. I ended up returning it.

Edit
Rayzar & Rayzar Air can be a little confusing. What I was referring to was the Rayzar. This is the first I have heard about the Rayzar Air device so I'm curious too.

x's 2 for jack. It's a great antenna. Much better reception. Sometimes I don't even have to put it up. Just IMO.

What does it look like. Is it a direct replacement, but better reception than the batwing exterior antenna. Can it mount on the existing base?

It can be mounted on existing beam. Instructions to do that are included.

You can get a retrofit kit for upgrading a Winegard batwing, comes with antenna and boom or buy the complete kit with lift mechanism.
