Smile Winegard TV/FM Antennas

We are the new owners of a 2005 Country Coach Inspire with a Winegard omnidirectional TV/FM antenna mounted on the roof. Since this unit is a 2005 and before the switch to all digital television I assume the antenna is cut to serve that foremat? Is it advisable to replace the antenna or is there some sort of fix so it will work? My TV is a HD digital unit so should receive digital signal just fine. Thanks for the advice.

Are you sure yours is digital? My 05 Inspire has a HD flat screen but it wasn't digital so I got a digital converter, like the ones the government was assisting people with (but better), and now my omni directional antenna works quite well. Although, I think a directional would bring in more stations.

Denny, see how it works.. If you need more reception, Winguard has a bolt-on to that existing antenna which should improve reception for digital.

I swapped out my tube TV for a 32" LED/LCD TV and it receives HD stations just fine when in range. I added a Wingman that snaps on to the antenna to get higher numbered channels. If I'm in range I prefer the OTA stations to cable.
