In my driveway, which is 40 miles outside Chicago, I was lucky to get the 10 local stations. when they switched to digital I lost all but one station and it would junp in and out. I dealt with it for years until I replaced the factory antenna this year with a Jack antenna. I now get 71 (yes 71) stations in my driveway. and at the campgrounds that we didn`t get any signal we can now get near 20 stations! best $35 I spent on the trailer. I checked all connections before the swap and all was OK. I`ve heard the same from others with similar complaints. If all your connections are good I would consider a change to the Jack antenna!

We had a chance to test a King Jack against our Winegard with the Wingman add on.
Before the digital conversion we received 1 good and 1 not so good analog channels at our south central CO. location.
After the analog to digital conversion 0 channels.
I changed the Winegard to a Jack and the Jack could find 1 not usable digital channel, proof to me that Jack works even if we're too far away for it be watchable.
A friend has an omnidirectional antenna that doesn't work at his house, our King picks up several (30+) hand held on his roof using the coax that goes to his antenna.
