I installed a digital converter box in my coach and I get a lot of channels at some tracks I am at and hardly any at others. "We do a lot of travling to race tracks."
Is there something that I can do to improve this?
Assuming that you have a Winegarde antenna, the add on is called a "Wingman" and it did help us. One thing that you will find with digital is that while it has a better picture, it also has a shorter range.
I just went through this with a 2003 Hurricane with the Winegard antenna. Digital reception was spotty at best so I bought the add-on UHF unit. While installing it I noticed the feed cable which runs from the antenna head through the support arm and connects to the M/H cable was shot. Unscrewing the F-connectors from the coupler showed corrosion and rust with no DC connection between the M/H amplifier/distribution switch and the antenna head. Replaced the antenna cable and coupler and now it's good as new. So even on a relatively 'young' RV, check the cables on the roof for corrosion or breakage if you've got reception problems.
Well, the wingman did not fit my antenna I had all the cables replaced, worked perfect until I had to install the converter box then it is just week. When I was in Indy it was great but you are close to all the stations.
Update........I got time to work on it Sunday and I had it wired wrong :clown: :clown: :clown:
It seams to be good now......I ran the antenna wire from the antenna to the converter box and out of it back to the splitter switch......wrong, I had to leave the antenna incoming wire hooked to the splitter and run the to t.v. wire to the converter box and from the converter box to the to t.v. post on the splitter. The only down fall is I think I will only have reception at the main t.v. and not for the one in the bed room.
