OTA antenna

Any suggestions on a replacement head for my original 08 Winegard bat wing antenna?

This past weekend at the Rv park, we got 4 channels on the search, but to weak to hold on to them. The people on both sides had at least 6 or 7 channels. They were both using the new Winegard Sensar , or something like that.

Sounds like all you need is to add the Wingard Wingman attachment.
The batwing antenna was lousy for UHF channels and most channels are now UHF.
Very simple to install.

The new Winegard Rayzer Z1 (just the head) that attaches to the existing Wingman mast has mixed reviews.

We have that crappy little mushroom shape antenna that is worthless. I have started using a portable antenna I bought off amazon. Only had it out twice so far but both places that we routinely stay at and only get a few channels if any, I was getting in 18 and 20 channels. I just let it hang in from the cabinet when using it and roll it up when traveling.

Just in case this is directed at my input here is the Rayzar Z1 antenna. Available as a complete replacement for the original Winegard or just the antenna that mounts on the original Winegard mast. I do not have an opinion for this antenna. Don't know how it stacks up when compared to the King jack Antenna.

Thanks for the information. I didn't know there was a replacement for just the head on that style antenna. I need to see if I can find some reviews on that.
