Thanks Lou, educated me again.
I especially liked a part of one of your posts... "2) Add Wingman and you make that non-directional loop directional by using those narrow to large elements to "bend" the incoming UHF signal like a magnifying glass to focus more RF energy onto that non-directional loop UHF antenna. The "Arrow head" of the wingman MUST point directly to the broadcast tower to be most effective."
I was wondering how my cousin's Sensar IV was outperforming my Sensar III. I suspected the IV was just a III with the Wingman added. And, I was wondering how unwired (unconnected) elements worked their expletive "magic."
But after reading all that wonderful information, it only "boosted" my disappointment that Forest River did not install the Sensar IV on the Windjammer they just built for me.
However... the television is a thin light-weight 1080 capable LED model (as opposed to an older heavier LCD model) with three HDMI inputs allowing me to add my blue-ray disc player too. So, they are technology current in one aspect (the tv) while less so in another (the antenna).
Trying to end on a positive note.
