RV antenna feedback

Anybody happen to have any feedback on Jack RV Antennas? I have the Sensar IV antenna head with the wingman. It is decent for the most part, but if I can upgrade to something better I would. Thanks.

There is lots of debate on rv.net about this.

I have the Jack and we love it. But I don't think you're going to see better results with it than what you have, just different maybe. Are you using a signal strength finder? I have a Sure Lock Signal Strength finder. In one place we camp I get 15 stations where I only got 3 stations with the old bat wing antenna. But without the signal finder I'd be guessing where to point the antenna. I'd try that first.

I've been down that road last summer. You may find this previous thread intersting reading:

We use the simple batwing style that was already installed. Last trip we received 40 digital and 1 analog station. We were happy with that because we only needed the weather, too busy enjoying to watch TV.
