Thanks, I did create an alternate antenna and it worked fine. I did ensure that the power booster was off before trying the radio. I did get a TV setup over the weekend. Our unit did not come with a TV so we got one at Walmart. It has the connections for the RCA Jacks. I connected it and sure enough, it did not work. The mental midget that they had wire the jacks did it completly backwards. Quick fix and the TV did work fine on the standard DVD player.

The over the air channesl worked fine too. It brought in the local over the air HD channels fine.

Some of the units use an amplified radio antenna that is part of the TV antenna. Turn on the amplifier button on the wall plate and you should be OK.

Thanks UhDuh. I am set up for the season in Pittsburg, NH, which is right at the Canadian border. On a good day you can get 2 stations and one is French. The antenae in the 8289WS is so bad I cannot receive any stations. I bought this adapter and installed it this past weekend and I now get 12 stations. Happy camping!

Glad I could help. I have two stations near my house and could not get either one to come in. It was so frustrating, some one else mentioned the adapter here on the forum. This forum is very helpful. So its a big thanks to people who make this forum great!
