New Digital HDTV Anntenna

Replaced the old wing antenna head with the "JACK" replacement head. Before the replacement I was receiving 2 channels after the replacement I am receiving 31 channels at my location.

Wow, I've been wondering how the replacement heads work. Was it an easy install?

Takes longer to unwrap it than to install it.

WENT FROM 21 CH to 38

Yep, it works. As OC said, "It takes longer to remove from box than to install".

I could not believe the difference, good by bat wing!

Camping World has them on sale for $39.95.

Is this an addition to the OEM antenna or replacement head to the OEM antenna?
