Do you simply just change the antenna head up on the
mast and that's all??
The King's antenna is a direct replacement for the Winegard head you have up there now. It gets its power from the existing Winegard wall plate just like the one you have there.
AS to TV stations, remember the thread where I talked about digital stations being "directional" and the UHF/VHF digital stations still need your old antenna to be "aimed". Once you put the Wingman or the King's Control antenna on, ALL digital stations become directional. The "Arrow" of the the Winegard and King's control antenna MUST point to the tower for best reception. Find that bearing for each station you want to watch.
Try using www.antennaweb.org
to get the "bearing" to the transmission tower. I made a compass for the crank handle as shown in a related thread and it works GREAT.
Also attached is what the web site will produce. Also click on the "street level" button for a "visual" indication of where the antenna should point using road map or Google Earth type pictures of your camp site. I had no luck trying to create a "picture" of that result to post.
