Fast forward to last night, same situation, new rv, no cable campsite, crank up antenna, channel search and OMG.. I get about 20 HD channels clear as day, no snow nothing? And that with my new recommended wingman antenna thing sitting under my bed not yet installed????
What have I missed?? In the last 10 years antenna tv has turned into something that is completely usable????
Agree, TV channels have improved, but the programming has not.
After 1 too many bill increases from Comcast, I disconnected from them, and now receive 20 channels with an $100 outside antennae on a 12" pole. Remarkably, I can pick up channels about 75 miles away with a small mountain in the way......go figure.
I can pick up 23 channels with my camper antennae sitting 20' away, but I have the ability to turn that antennae which I don't have on the home antennae.
The Wingman may pick up additional channels, but beware that the Wingman will concentrate the UHF signal with directional coverage, so you might have to move the antennae around a bit to maximize your signal. I do a channel scan with the antennae in 3 positions, 120° apart, and that seems to work well.
