Wingman antantae booster

What are your opinions about adding the wingman attachment to the roof top antantae? I had one on my previous TT and to be honest didn't see any real difference. Before adding to my new White hawk, am interested in what others have to say.

I added a wingman to my previous 5W and transferred it to my current 5W. To be honest, I can not provide verifiable data that it has made any difference. But, it looks cool when raised! Truth is, I also added satellite TV so haven't used my antenna for 2 summers.

The Wingman is advertised as improving the reception of signals in the UHF channels. When the change was made to digital frequencies, all of the VHF channels between 2 and 13 went to being broadcast on UHF frequencies which is channels 14 and higher. So in theory, the Wingman should help you get better reception.

Will you see a difference with a Wingman? It's hard to say. I added both the Wingman and the SensarPro amplifier. Later on I tried a Jack antenna. I found between the two, the Wingman Sensar antenna with the Wingman and SensarPro signal amplifier it noticeably outperformed the Jack antenna. Is there something better out there? I don't know. But the combination of Sensar Antenna, Wingman and SensarPro amplifier is the best I've found so far.

It works good for me here on the East side of the US... I had fading before and lots of pixel breakups when air planes would fly direct overhead.

We get 6-36 digital channels here. We even use ours when at camp grounds with cable hookups for the local town stations. They are all in full blown high def and easier on the eyes than the analog stuff coming over over the cable hookups. It was so good for us back then we stopped bringing along our SAT TV stuff since we liked to watch the local broadcast stations anyway. Gotta watch my NCIS and CSI shows.

We have seen a couple of the camp grounds now having digital cable signals so it won't belong that everything will be digital I reckon...

Adding the UHF add-on helped us but we are out in the woods alot... Like having the local town 24 hour radar stations to keep tabs on local storms that might be heading our way.
