Hello All



Just a quick question, My TV antenna on my 2013 Elevation is not working very well. Does anyone know of a good repalcement antenna without having to buy satellite equipment.

My HD TV is constantly saying that the signal is not strong enough.



Thanks----Steve

A lot of people are reporting good results with the Jack system

As a fellow elevation owner, make sure the booster behind the tv is turned on. My antenna works well, sometimes you have to move it around and make sure its facing the right direction.

If you have a batwing antenna you could add a Wingman to it which really helped our HD reception.

Keith,
Does the Wingman interfere at all with putting the antenna down? Doesn't look like it should and the gentleman in the video said it didn't but I'd rather hear it from an actual user.

Thanks,
Jim

I have the wingman also no problems with it laying down. Tho I am thinking seriously about the Jack. They are made by King Dome and sell between 39 and 55 dollars on Amazon. The realtop of the line is 139 but dose not drop down. I have intended to give King dome a call and see about the height

On my 2011 305skp, they came with the jensen batwing ant. Problem was it was mounted behind and close to the A/C. So had signal problems if stations were in front of me. Called Jensen they sent another antenna, said maybe bad Ant. explained location and they said they had no control over location. Tried new antenna, worked great when I hand held it above A/C. Same problem when in position. Called CR explained problem. They sent me a Crank up one. I installed it works great. Havent tried putting on a wingman yet.

Frank, let me know if you put a "Jack" antenae on your rig. I read that you can buy one that fits on the existing wingard crank up. Curious if the "Jack" will work any better.
