Antenna issues

Camping for the first time on our 26dbh and can't get a single channel on my TV. Anyone else have this issue? Any ideas?

Once your antenna is up make sure that the power for the antenna booster is on. The switch is normally by where the TV plugs in. Remember with digital channels you will have to move the antenna slowly. Look for the direction the other campers have their antenna's pointed and start there then do a channel scan with the TV

I have the omni mount which based on what I am reading might be the issue.

Insure the amplifier is on ( push the small button on the face plate where the coax comes out of the wall to the tv) a green, red or blue light should come on. Turn on TV go to setup and do a channel scan.

Unfortunately I've done that and nothing changes...in radio quality or channel availability

Then check to make sure all of your connectors are:
1. Connected tightly
2. Connected rightly (i.e., the connectors are on the cable ends right)
3. They are all actually connected in series through the splitter and the receptacle

Seems like this comes up a lot from various posters so you are not the only one. We have been in some sites where the reception just sucked. Good luck.

Have the same trailer, that omni antenna is junk. I am looking to upgrade in the near future.

I can't get squat using my antenna either.....I noticed that the round part is a little wobbly and I was going to ask dealer if that is normal.....

I'm shocked at how bad it is...I can't get a single station. Mine wobbles as well. I can't believe they would use these considering how bad they are.

There are many good antenna's on the market that a person can retrofit to the existing hole in the roof.
