I am currently in a campground that the air antenna signals are if if at best. Is there a adapter or another booster that will bring in the signals better, not sure if the Wingman will help or will fit on my Antenna Tek. Thanks

I purchased this amplifier and antenna to get a decent signal at my remote cabin site in the Sawtooths of Idaho. I had a half bar sometimes reception before. Now I get four to five bars. I have ac and dc power on it. It works so well that I use my Wifi enabled cell phone to hook up my laptop with pretty darn good speed. Works. http://www.alternativewireless.com/cellular-antennas/wilson-antennas/wilson_cellular_amplifiers/wilson-signalboost-universal-amplifier-dual-band.html

The wingman (so I am told) doesn't fit on the Antenna Tek but in another thread I was told a replacement Head from Winegard can be placed on the existing shaft and works well. This has a built in Wingman. It is a new Antenna Sensar IV offered by Winegard to improve the digital signal. I ordered on from http://www.solidsignal.com/Winegard RVW205. Camping World also has it.http://www.campingworld.com/shopping/item/winegard-sensar-iv-integrated-amp-replacement-head-only/50012.

This discussion I started yesterday may be of interest to you.

Try this link Antenna Web (http://www.antennaweb.org/aw/Address.aspx) for starters. After putting in a zip code for your location, you'll get a map. Pinpoint your position and you'll then be told the direction to aim your antenna. It will also give you the distance to the available channels and their call letters. Good Luck. As a side note, I don't think anything will improve the potential for reception on the RV's factory antenna/amplifier.
