After purchasing or new 2015 Grey Wolf 26RL, we were "Very Disappointed " in the fixed ( Roadstar i believe ) TV antenna reception we where getting, compared our old TT with a Sensar. Was going to order the new Sensar IV to replace the factory unit, about a $250 investment, then all the roof work, hole drilling and cable running.
I had an old amplified outdoor tv antenna that we had on the house when we first cut the cable, it worked great, considering we are around 60 miles from Savannah ( we upgraded to a new hoonker model ), i fished it out of the shed, stuck it up on a long pole, and hooked it up with it's controller/amp, feed it thru the cable input .Old Roadster ( factory ) 4 channels , cheap E Bay ,21 channels, some of them if'y, but 12 or so great HD picture and all the networks, So the big test, went to one of our favorite parks in the boonies, where very few get any OTA reception, and we never got any, with the new rig we got 3 , all PBS, but that,s fine with me, got some great new recipes from Create !!!
So, bought a new version of the same antenna $35,E Bay, telescoping 15 ft pole skimmer pole $15, Amazon stand of brackets and hose clamps from Lowes $10. So $60 invested, works great, a few minutes to set when at site.
It didn't start at money, but drilling holes in roof and running the cables at 62 years old and fading
Pictures don't show full height of mast, tree limb got in the way !!
Having problems with Pics, will sent this and post after .
