JACK TV Antenna

Anybody tried one of these? Jack Digital TV antenna at CW for $139

I would be concerned that since it doesn't fold down for travel, it would catch the wind or limbs and put pressure on the roof. I'm not in the market for it, just curious.

I use their replacement head version and it replaces the Wingman and then folds down, works great.

I've had one for almost a year now. No problems. Not much different as far as reception goes versus the batwing style, but much better then the Jensen that came on my tt.

We bought the replacement head, no reception whatsoever, put batwing and wingman back on and had 6 channels. Back to company Jack antenna goes.

We bought the replacement head and went from no channels to 10. When I got home, I tried it in place of our wineguard and got 22 channels, so I ordered another. They are only about $50.00. Just make sure you plug in the booster and the read light is burning on the Jack.

We installed the Jack at the beginning of this season and we love it!

We love not having to remember to crank it down when we de-camp!

We love being able to "fine tune" the directional setting using the signal strength leds!

We love its ability to capture weak signals!

We love how easy it was to install!

As you can tell, we love it!
