Television Antenna - KING Jackô Replacement Head

How many people on this great forum have replaced their standard television antenna with the KING Jack antenna?

If you have,
1) What is your review?
2) Are you pleased or disappointed?
3) Are you getting more stations than you had with the standard antenna?
4) Do you feel the price was worth $50.00?


I am getting my "Honey Do" list together and this is one that I have been putting off for sometime now and the DW is once again asking about it.

I would appreciate any information that can be submitted!!

I have one. Very happy with it. Less than 10 minutes to install (not including draggin out a ladder...). In one place we frequent we went from 3 stations to 14 or 15. If you get one, I highly recommend getting a signal finder also.

If I was looking at one today I'd probably by the Wingman Sensar add-on. Less money and many people report good results with it.

I was debating this at one point, but decided against it to save some money for other upgrades. I have also read mixed reviews; some swear by it and others say it is basically the same as a batwing with the wingman. The most important way to get good signals is knowing where to point your antenna. There are good websites/apps that can help for the general direction of local TV antennas, but as mentioned above, a signal finder would be the best method.

I posted recently about doing the same thing. Bought the replacement head "open box" from Amazon. Quick swap out but went from about 14 channels to about 5, in my driveway. I returned it. Now, would I try again with a non open box unit? Sure. Great reviews, so must be some tech behind it. Be sure to post your results.

I just put the add-on on the Batwing. Is it a improvement? I have no idea; I never seem to be around any antennas according to this website: http://www.antennapoint.com/

Is there a better website?

It's what came on our new rig. Works much better than my previous antenna. If it was only 50$ I'd probably buy it.

I had dismal results with the OEM antenna, so bought a King Jack. Now I get 4 channels.....sometimes.

I get them all about 10% of the time. When I can't get them all I can't even get one. I must note that I'm far from the stations and the mountains lurking over my valley are real big.

The signal finder interests me. Can someone provide a link? I'll gladly buy one.
