Wingman for DTV reception

Anyone using this product? Did it help reception or no improvement at all?

Thumbs up

It helped quite abit. And very easy to install, it took me longer to climb up and get down from the roof than it did to snap it in place on the antenna. Just remember to rescan for channels.

I just put mine on this winter, but so far I have noticed a pretty good improvement for some stations. I would say it will not help in every situation, but for $25 I think it is worth it....

I just installed mine, went to try it out and the power adaptor for the DTV converter was dead. Getting a new adaptor this week and I'll try it out on Saturday. We are staying at a County park but it is in a canyon and we don't get much signal. Hoping this will allow us access to more chanels.

I usually get on http://antennaweb.org before I go and see what it thinks I should be receiving. Also helps in the pointing...Seems with the Wingman you are actually pointing 90o off from the little arrow on the dial.

Same with me, took longer to get on the roof and off roof than actually putting it on. It made a world of differance. Ernie

This thread is a little old, but still revelant.
I just installed my Wingman and it was quick and easy. It did improve reception a little here, but we get fair reception anyway.
One problem I had was the A/C was too close to allow the antenna to lower all the way. I cut the first element off to get clearance. I still get the same stations as before cutting it off. We'll see this weekend when we're camping.
