We have been doing the BATWING antenna ever since they started up a couple years back. We usually get 6-36 digital stations just about everywhere we go camping. The most I ever picked up was up on Skyline Drive and that was 84 digital stations. Alot were the same channels but from different towns....

One trailer has the plain batwing and the other on has the add on. The add on did help some but I still get many channels without it in the other trailer. The best antenna I played with was one of those VERY LARGE FULL VHF/UHF fold-out antennas from Lowes ($90). It worked like gang busters but after about 20 OFF-ROAD POPUP camping trips it didnt survive any more unfolding and setups. It was strange looking hanging over both sides of the trailer too hehe...

I want to play with the KINGS antenna now. and see what it does. Nothing better than watching the Natl Broadcast stations (NBC-CBS-FOX-ABC-PBS) all in full screen - full HDTV for free just about everywhere we go.

Help needed. We have a Jayco Eagle HT Super Lite 5th wheel bought new last year. We just purchased a Wingman and it would not fit. Took it back to the RV store and they said the newer antennas were already designed for digital reception. Also our old TT had an antenna booster button. I don't find one on the model. Suggestions appreciated.

I added this but the increase only occurs on the high number channels. 13+. The lower channels do not increase. For the price and ease of install it's worth the $20 or so dollars.

I added one to my batwing antenna 2 years ago. It helps some, but I purchased a JACK antenna and it more than doubled the channels that I get at our property. I was getting 4 channels and now get 10. The channels are all coming in from 100 plus miles.

No I am NOT retired. I work full time.:D
