Best Antenna
 
Checking to see what type of antennas everyone is using and what the reception is like. I would like to add a better one to our 2019 26RBWS.

Assuming you're talking about TV OTA antennas.


I've got a Winegard Rayzar Z1. I like it.

Any of the antennas on rv's will pick up best when you are closer to the tv stations transmitter tower. I may be wrong but I think most rv antennas are rated for around 35 miles, some may be good for 50 miles. Another factor is how much clutter, such as tall buildings, large hills and mountains, and the density of the forests and trees is between the station transmitter tower and your antenna. The higher the antenna is the cleaner the signal will be.

I think the best is a jack, very easy replacement for a rasied antenna just 2 pins, it increased my reception by twice sometimes 3 times the station.

The King Jack antenna is a good alternative. I put a Jack on a 36' tower at my house and picked up Milwaukee, WI tv stations with a strong signal 73 miles away. While we were at our camper a storm came through at home and the antenna didn't work when we got home. Haven't replaced it yet, I need a cherry picker to reach it.
