BURLINGTON, Iowa (August 14, 2012) – Winegard Company, inventor of the first multi-channel TV antenna for the United States and the first antenna customized for recreational vehicles, today introduced the paper-thin, translucent Rayzar™ HDTV broadcast antenna for the tailgating, camping and RV markets. At just 0.6" thick, this flat antenna can be hung on internal vehicle windows, making it ideal for tuning in local broadcast channels such as ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, Fox and more.
Weighing in at just over five ounces, the patented Rayzar portable HDTV antenna finds and pulls in the local broadcast stations for free viewing. There are no monthly programming fees, just crisp, clear HD reception courtesy of the 12 in. by 13 in. antenna. It is ideal for recreational vehicles, campers, tailgating and truckers; because it can be rapidly set-up once the vehicle is parked and removed quickly for departure. The Rayzar requires no installation and is a perfect solution for RVs with little-to-no roof space available.
"The Rayzar is a great fit for the mobile lifestyle, the quick release suction cup clips make it easy to reposition the antenna at each location for maximum reception," said Aaron Engberg, director of mobile products for Winegard Co. "Consumers will be amazed at the almost Blu-ray™ quality picture and quantity of channels it pulls in for free wherever they are parked."
It has a simple plug in and play set up so there is no assembly required. Just connect the cable to the TV, find the optimal antenna placement, run a channel scan and watch TV. Rayzar comes with an extra long 15 ft. of mini coaxial cable giving the viewer flexibility in positioning the antenna where the signal is the strongest.
Rayzar, which retails for $44.99, is now available and shipping to RV retailers and dealers nationwide.
