Winegard Automatic Dome HDTV Antenna

Thinking seriously about installing one of theses automatic signal seeking Winegard antennas.
Has anyone done one yet ? Any idea where to buy it ? Have found listings for it on Winegards site but no prices or where to get it.

There was a thread on this topic not too long ago. If it's what I think it is, everyone who made the upgrade was happy. Winegard is supposed to be coming out with the latest and greatest after the first of the year so you may want to hold off. However, this new "antenna" is not plug and play like the others. It appears as though the installation will require roof penetrations.

Assume you are talking about this HD antenna - not the SD 'domed' antenna ?

With the recent advent of wireless nodes, installation should be much easier now (maybe not easier than mine since it was rolled into the purchase )

Now look for sites that are NOT tree covered so we can get our HD, especially during football season !
Last time 10 adults ending up in ours watching the 55" LED !

No, actually this one ~

Not available yet but have talked to Winegard. Should be a pretty easy install, use the existing coax from the stock antenna and the existing booster gets replaced with the controller for the antenna.


Hope to get one shortly after first of year and have it in as one of my Spring projects.

Just finished chatting with a Winegard rep. It is going to be around $399.00.

I was also told it should be available in a week or two. Could be a Christmas present for some folks!

I'm looking forward to the reviews as well, if any folks purchase it. I'm interested, but heck, after just buying my RW back in September, I don't think my wife would be willing to let me purchase one...yet!

This is an OTA antenna, not for satellite [DISH/Direct]. Pretty expensive for OTA, I'll wait and see. Will certainly take the frustration out of spinning the OTA antenna, at least one would hope!!

Because I have a Trav'ler with DISH I seldom use OTA/cable. The park we're in now has cable, I haven't even connected it to the coach.

We like to record, then watch when we want so using sat with DVR is really the only option.
