Description


Upgrade your old antenna for better digital TV reception.
Broader reception range helps you receive signals found in the “dead spot” not reachable by the existing mount. Power it by your existing antenna power supply or use the included power injector that just plugs into an AC outlet. Includes custom bracket for simple retrofit to your current crank-up antenna mast using the existing mounting pins. A universal mounting bracket is also included for installation on a pole or railing for residential use.

Wider reception range:

Makes it easier to find a signal and scan for available channels. Less directional than traditional RV antennas.

Designed for digital

Better reception of UHF signals where over 80% of new DTV channels are broadcast. Also provides great reception of remaining VHF channels.

Built-in amplifier

Enhance weak signals for improved reception capability. Includes AC to DC power supply. Also works with existing wall mount or video switch antenna power supply for simple retrofit.

Compact design

Up to 70% smaller than traditional RV antennas and offers less wind resistance.

Simple to install

Install in just minutes without any special tools. RV bracket allows antenna to be mounted in either direction to clear A/C, vent or other potential roof obstructions.

Kit Includes:

  • Antenna
  • RV bracket for Sensar lift
  • Pole mount bracket
  • AC to DC power supply
  • Hardware

Even in the driveway, could get the distant PBS stations. In the campground, now I can get local news from 100 miles away. Would recommend.

Doubled the channels we received, all came through crystal clear. Easy 5 minute installation. A great improvement over the HDTV antenna that came with our motorhome. Should be a must for all those wanting free TV.

Took 10 min to install due to rusty parts on old bat wing. I get 24 stations at 58 miles away, got 8 before I installed the jack. It works good even on the road with antenna down, but does have some black outs. On clear nights this antenna picks up as far away as 80 miles or better..I have a 83 pace arrow. Makes it feel newer!!

Replaced batwing only because this one was on sale and looked cool. It does install easily on the crank up mast, basic hand tools needed, and in 10-15 minutes. Good signal but not sure if better than batwing as I found out after replacing the batwing that I had been aiming it incorrectly for 8 years.

Easy to install. Need to try it more to see if it is really better than the batwing. We did get good reception most places. In other places reception would drift in and out where I thought it would be easy to lock in.

We went from getting 4-6 channels to 20-30 at most campgrounds. At home when I would set up the TV I would get around 30, that went to 78. The picture quality is great and very easy to install on trailer roof .

This is a great product and it doubled the number of channels I can receive! It worked so well, I bought another and replaced the old outdoor antenna on my house. I like the compact size on the camper and it appears less fragile and subject to damage at highway speeds. Installation was very easy and the instructions were clear.

November 20, 2013
This was my attempt to get reception without spending a ton of money. It gave us three stations in a remote area where there was no reception before. So, I expect it will work great when we are not so far away from an urban area. Installation was just as described - quick and easy. Who can complain about free TV in a day when spending a hundred bucks a month is not unusual.

Also Works Great on an AntennaTek Antenna


0 out of 0 people found this review helpful.
November 20, 2013
I purchased this to replace the head on my existing AntennaTek antenna. This antenna is similar to a Winegard, but it is not exactly the same, and Jack does not list the AntennaTek as being compatible with the Jack head. After I installed the adapter bracket I noticed that the top of it was not sitting level. This was probably due to the slight geometry differences between a Winegard and an AntennaTek. I carefully bent the top of the bracket a little bit until it was level. Then I bolted on the Jack antenna head. I used the existing AntennaTek amplifier already installed in the RV; so no wiring changes were required. The antenna works great. Just sitting in my back yard I can tune more TV stations than I could before.

I keep my trailer near Pymatuning Lake in Ohio. After adding the Jack, I now get the locals out of Cleveland, ABC, NBC CBS and Fox. I also get the Youngstown stations for about 10 stations in all. This in an upgrade of 5-7 stations depending on the weather. A great investment for casual TV watching. Great upgrade over the Wingman! Simply to install, yes a lady or a kid can do it!

Installation was quick with no issues. Have not tried it on the road, but in my driveway, I got 8 TV stations with the old batwing. With the new Jack Antenna, I got 20 TV stations. In the past with my old antenna, reception was very bad. So looking forward to the new Jack antenna based on what we have thus far.

Super Replacement

September 16, 2013
We had the batwing Winegard antenna on our RV that got damaged by low-hanging branches, After doing some research, we replaced the Winegard with this antenna. It was so easy to install as the Winegard crank up tower was not damaged. We instantly noticed a much stronger digital signal from our local Phoenix stations. It even picks up most of Tucson's stations which are 90 miles away. Using it on our latest trips have been a real joy as this antenna locks the digital signals in with considerably less effort that our old Winegard. We love this antenna. We are going to buy one for our home office TV which we use when our satellite signal is blocked during storms.

August 30, 2013
It was better than the previuos reviews. Litterally about a 5 minute install and getting more than the 4 channels I was getting with the old camper antenna. Went from 4 channels to 13 channels using the current booster in the camper, not the one that came with the Jack HD. Would highly suggest this upgrade to anyone wanting more, clear channels while camping.

I had an amplified Winegard antenna and reception was ok but not great. Was thinking of adding the Wingman but after reading several reviews and seeing sale price on the Jack replacement head, went with Jack. Install was very easy (10 minutes tops) and so far so good. At home I was getting 22 channels but with the Jack installed I now get 27 channels. I look forward to our next camping trip where reception is usually a challenge. My local Camping World honored the Internet price which was even better than Amazon.

It took less then 5 min to install on my travel trailer and with the old antenna I got 2 channels. I installed the Jack Digital HDTV antenna now I get 13 channels. The 11 new channels I get is in Orlando, and I live about 50 miles away. Overall it works great I would recommend buying one.

After doing the 15 minute install we left for the campground and to my surprise I pulled in channels that were only marginal with the Bat Wing. I also pulled in 8 extra channels that I didn't get before. This campground is in a valley with tall trees every where, I'm very happy with the results.

I'm at least 50 miles from any TV broadcast stations. I tuned in my TV with the batwing on my 2006 motorhome and found 3 monolog and 2 digital channels. After replacing the batwing with the Jack antenna I again set the TV to channel search. This time it pulled in 12 digital channels. Some stations were 100 miles away. I would definitely recommend this product.

WE GOT TV

June 02, 2013
The wife and I are campers, but new to RV camping. Bought a new flat screen TV and could only get 1 channel on the Winegard antenna. We have an older model (1999) trailer. I bought the Jack Digital antenna not knowing what to expect. Install took me less than five minuets. Turned on the TV and ran scan and came up with 31 channels and with the booster on they are clear as a bell. Our TV has a built in strength signal meter (not sure if that’s standard with all new digital TV’s) and with just a quick adjustment (right angle to the dangle) we were all set. Great product for the price and would highly recommend it to anyone.

Install was very easy. Attached the included brackets to the Jack antenna, disconnected the cable from the old Winegard batwing antenna, and removed a couple of pins holding it on the elevating arms. Reinstalled the pins with the Jack antenna in place and reconnected the cable. Turned on my new LED HDTV and did a channel search. It found about 19 different channels in my local area, some I didn't even know existed. Picture quality was excellent. Completely satisfied.

I used the sure lock signal finder on the winegard w/wingman to find the best signal with that setup. I then attached the Jack antenna and ran the signal meter. I was concerned that I could not get 4 lights like the wingman. But when I ran the TV scan it pulled up channels I never could get before. I seems like it is not as direction dependant as the wingman. I can now pull in a station 60 miles away and watch my sorry team's blackout games. Jack is a very afforadable upgrade and easy to install.
