My long, sad, dreary story:
We have two rural houses and one city house.
At 9000 feet near this zip code is one rural house: 87025
It is a house in the New Mexico Mountains. A neighbor has a trailer and gets good TV reception there.
Another rural house is near this zip code: 76692 near Whitney Texas.
Our city house is at this zip code 75244 in Dallas Texas.
I hate the cable companies.
When the new digital TV mess began I finagled two old conventional antennas and one new one (Antennas Direct) and had a lot of trouble at first. Now I can finally get reception by rotating the whole mess for different stations. But I want a better solution.
Since our mountain neighbor gets good reception, I want to know if the rotating RV antennas will work for all three of our houses.
Does someone have some experience with using the RV (trailer) type antenna on a house or know of any reason why it would not work?
Could someone answer this question on the forum? I know this is an old thread but I have the same question.
My RV gets excellent reception parked next to my house (we didn't even bother to rotate or aim it), better than the house antenna which is higher, on a tower, bigger, etc. (don't know the exact brand/kind of house antenna we have).
A Winegard RV antenna is cheaper, smaller, easier to install, etc. So why not put one on the house? The RV has a rubber roof so there is no ground plane to speak of so I'm wondering if there's a technical reason not to do this. I can easily power the antenna with 12v power.
Did you ever get this working for your house? I have the same experience of great reception in my camper but poor in my house with a bigger antenna on the roof. I have a second Winegard antenna head but I am wondering about the need for power. Can I connect it to any antenna amplifier?
