I replaced the OEM older version winegard with the Jack Digital HDTV Antenna as one of my first MODs on our new Sabre. At first, I was going to add on the "Wingman" to help with the UHF-HD, but after seeing a demo at an RV show I decided to spend a little more and try the Jack Digital. I did install the Wingman on our previous TT and got good results with that as well.

I only have one piece of data to share...the "before and after" test on the side of my house produced ~ 11 more channels using the Jack Digital Antenna. btw..it was a very easy unstall, but not as easy as the Wingman. I don't have any actual data comparing reception between the Wingman and Jack digital, but my feeling is that the Jack does a little better.

I also use the King Control Dig TV Finder which helps locate th strongest digital signal prior to doing a channel scan



Just rotate the antenna and peak the signal strength. Works great...especially in fringe areas


Hop this helps.

I made a hurried and "last-minute" installation of this product before our trip up into the Pacific NW and Canada this past June. It was a good investment.
I really didn't know how good it really was until we returned home and I got to test it from our farm which is situated ~50 miles NE of Kansas City, MO.
Our house TV runs off a gigantic antenna on a 30 foot mast that runs through an RCA amplifier.
The Wingman enabled my standard trailer antenna to duplicate the performance at the house!!!
Excellent value in this product and a cinch to install!
Highly recommended!

Thanks for all of the help. I think after reading these post I have made the decision to go ahead and spend a little more and get the Jack Digital.
