Our experience has been that most park cable that we plug into generally suck for reception and don't pull in 1/2 the channels they claim. We have the batwing with the wingman installed. Point the antenna in the direction of the transmitters as per antennapoint.com and bingo HD tv and generally plenty of stations. It's rare any more if we plug into park cable, not worth the effort.

I can't agree with you as I've had both types of antenna. I can say, however, the omni antenna works well if your in a area with "close" tv stations. IMHO the "batwing" works better if you are in a rural area and need to pull in stations from a greater distance.
And YES, the Over The Air (OTA) antenna on top of your unit WILL give you a much better picture than campground cable. The OTA antenna gives you HD tv while most campground cable systems do not provide a HD picture.

I agree with this entire statement.
