Burlington, Iowa – (February 15, 2010) - Winegard Company has taken RV television reception to the next level with the introduction of the SENSAR IV amplified antenna. The company, an innovator in television reception for more than 55 years, has integrated its SENSAR III antenna with the UHF-enhanced Wingman antenna for increased over-the-air TV viewing.
Optimized for the new DTV spectrum, the new SENSAR IV receives all available VHF/UHF/Digital channels, enabling viewers to enjoy watching all local programming in the U.S. while the RV is parked.
“With the changes brought on from the Digital Transition and the frequencies the local broadcasters now use to transmit their programming, it became apparent we needed to integrate the Wingman with the Sensar III to adapt to the change” said Aaron Engberg, Winegard Mobile Products Director. “The enhanced Sensar IV provides an unsurpassed range of up to 55 miles allowing it to receive the most television stations - bar none.”
The antenna can be raised, lowered and rotated with a hand crank from inside the RV and lowers to only 4 inches above the roof while traveling. The Sensar IV head requires 46.25” L x 15.25” W unobstructed roof space while it is stowed. Winegard product #RVW-395 includes the amplified antenna and lift assembly, as well as a +12 VDC white power supply with on/off switch, white interior control parts and 20 feet of 75 ohm coax cable. It has an MSRP of $159.00. For those who already own a SENSAR II or III antenna, Product #RVW-205, the SENSAR IV Integrated Amplified Replacement Head Only, retails for $69.99.
