Winegard Introduces Next Generation Carryout® G2 Compact Automatic Portable Satellite TV Antenna
Carryout G2 makes watching live satellite TV on-the-go fast and easy
BURLINGTON, Iowa (Apr. 9, 2014) — Winegard, a pioneering innovator in consumer and enterprise antenna design and development, recently introduced the compact Carryout® G2 automatic satellite TV antenna designed for use while RVing, camping, tailgating and other fun outdoor activities. The new and improved antenna is almost half the size than its predecessor, the Carryout (GM-1518), and features a sleeker lightweight design.
The Carryout G2 portable satellite antenna is fully automatic and is quick and easy to setup. With two coaxial outputs, two TVs can be connected for twice the viewing fun (receivers and programming sold separately). The antenna is powered through a 12V output (included), but can be connected to a 110V outlet with a power converter (sold separately).
"The Carryout G2 pushes the 'size-versus-performance-trade-off' common to satellite antennas to the limit," said Aaron Engberg, Director Mobile Sales Channel for Winegard. "Reducing the size by 40 percent from our original Carryout, without a single compromise in performance, is truly what makes Winegard the leader in antenna design. Consumers want smaller, faster, better and Winegard has once again delivered with the Carryout G2."
Key benefits to the Carryout G2 antenna include:
Fully automatic antenna eliminates the need for manually aiming/finding satellite signals
Compatible with all major satellite TV programming providers
DISH® (SD/HD), DIRECTV® (SD) and Bell TV™ (Canada -SD/HD)
Works with most satellite receiver models, including activated receiver(s) from home
Allows for two TV connection for twice the viewing with its dual coax ports and cables
Compact and ultra-lightweight design (13.5" h x 14.3", 10 lbs.)
Backed by an industry-leading, two year parts, one year labor limited warranty
Several mount options are available by Winegard. Raising the Carryout G2 antenna off the ground raises the look angle for better reception while also protecting it from the elements or hazards when placed on the ground. Both the tripod mount (TR-1518) and permanent roof kit mount (RK-2000) are currently available (sold separately). Winegard also has plans to unveil a window mount and rear semi-truck cab mount by summer of 2014.
The Carryout G2 is now shipping and has an MSRP of $649; models are available in white dome (GM-2000) or black dome (GM-2035).
