The JACK antenna is your way to receive free,
completely uncompressed high-definition television in your home.
CLEAR HDTV With coverage of both VHF and UHF digital HDTV
signals, the JACK™ antenna offers a broad reception range and enhanced UHF
reception where over 80% of the new digital channels are broadcast. You get
completely uncompressed high-definition TV signals for the best picture quality
available today. The JACK antenna installs in just 5 minutes without any
special tools. If you already use an over-the-air antenna, simply install the
JACK antenna in place of your existing antenna head.
YOU KNOW? The only way to receive a completely uncompressed
high-definition TV signal is with an over-the-air antenna (like the one in this
box). Cable and satellite signals are compressed, which means if you aren’t
receiving your channels over-the-air, you aren’t getting the clearest signal
The JACKTM digital HDTV antenna may be
mounted in two ways: RV Mounting: May be mounted to a
Sensar® retractable arm using the supplied RV Antenna Bracket Pole
Mounting: May be mounted to a pole using the supplied Pole Mount Bracket

love it JW - south bend, IN - 8/26/2015 8:38:07 AM I went from 3 channels to 38
I cant belive how good this little antenna works. I live app. 60 miles from the tv towers in Houston. I get 70 channels and all major ones crystal clear Bill Fullen - Galveston, TX - 11/4/2014 4:26:31 PM I just told you above. Nothing to hide.
Replaced Winegard Batwing Hugh - Nashville, ille IN - 3/28/2013 Replaced Winegard Batwing amplified antenna.The reception power is about the same as the batwing but is less directional. Therefore you are likely to receive more channels better without having to rotate the antenna around.
Review of Jack TV antenna Two travelers - Staples, MN - 3/28/2013 For those of us who dont use DISH or DIRECT TV on our motorhomes this antenna give 3 times the performance we had with our previous antenna on the motorhome.It was very easy to install and worked correctly the first time.We can quantify the performance because we get 3 times the channels we got previously.
Great RV Upgrade Len Rucker - Raynham, MA - 3/28/2013 With a Winegard unit I got 10 channels. With the King Controls I get 22 channels at the same location. It took longer to gather my tools and ladder for installation than it did to actually install the new antennae on my 10 year old Beaver RV
Jack TV OA8000 Antenna is a winna! JMarq - Cypress, TX - 6/13/2012 I live in Cypress TX (far suburban Houston). Antennaweb.org puts me at 33 miles from the local cluster of TV transmitters. I mounted this on an existing sat dish mount stand - about 12 ft off ground level. There are 2-story houses and large pine tress all around us. Yet this antenna grabs DTV signals from Good to Very Good on the TV signal strength display. ALmost no dropouts in the shows from th
Should be a mandatory Replacement. DanG - Shenandoah Vall, Shenandoah Vall - 5/23/2011 Absolutely awesome replacement for the existing batwing antenna that comes standard on most RVs.Its a five minute replacement that does EXACTLY as its advertised to do.Being in the mountains we received only 3 digital & analog channels and were unable to receive channels that were less than 12 miles away.After the easy installation (removal of the old head & replacement of the new one usi
It Works Great. mrhdl - Elkhorn, WI - 1/24/2011 Installation was easy. I just replaced my old bat wing antenna with this one. Works just fine using the old Winegard amp. The reception was great with the motorhome inside my shop.Great reception - crystal clear.
Good Stuff! GTN_and_Katz - Houston, TX - 3/28/2013 After reading through all the reviews I could find decided to buy one and replace my Wingman.Just like the ad says - its a simple straight-forward replacement for the existing antennae with ALL the required fittings power supply (if you dont already have a powered antenna) screws boots etc.Difficult to compare the before and after reception although my impression is that its at least a
Super easy install great performance! Stan - Capitola, la CA. - 3/28/2013 Out of the box and in use in 15 minutes! Pulls in many more stations than my old antanna. What makes my experience perfect is that I alsopurchased a signal strength meter so I can point the Jack Antenna in the direction of the strongest signal then I only have to do a channel scan ONCE!
It Works! Philthy - East Coast, East Coast - 3/28/2013 On a recent trip to the Canadian Maritimes I was getting 10 - 12 Digital Stations from the US (about 60 miles away) and 5 - 6 analog stations (Canada doesnt go digital until 2011) while adjacent RVs were getting at best 1 or 2 stations with their old Batwings.Super simple installation -- truly Plug-and-play.
This product is worth the money George the Wild - Los Alamos, Alamos NM - 3/28/2013 I tested this product about 70 miles from the TV towers. The location for height was about 15 feet above ground. Without amplification I had very poor reception. However when the signal was amplified the picture quality was excellent. I am very satisfied with the purchase of this product. I will use this amplified antenna when I travel with my camper.
Great product thegeekster - Indiana, Indiana - 3/28/2013 Installed this on my RV to replace my almost useless Winegard sensor with a additional booster I am considering using this at home to replace my awesome direct TV system which would save a great amount of moneyhook up to a antenna rotator and your good to go!!
