Tv reception with tv antennas

A simple and easy reception situation. Install a Winegard HD7698P antenna above the roof. Aim the antenna at about 226 degree magnetic compass. Here is how to aim antennas , http://www.kyes.com/antenna/pointing/pointing.html. Here are places to buy antennas and etc. , http://www.winegarddirect.com , http://www.solidsignal.com , http://www.solidsignal.com , http://www.amazon.com. Here are some antenna mounts , http://www.ronard.com/909911.html , http://www.ronard.com/34424560.html , http://www.ronard.com/ychim.html

I agree with the antenna suggestion, and would add a recommendation for a preamp.

Either the Antennas Direct CPA-18 or the Winegard AP-8700 with the CPA-18 favored due to it's excellent noise performance.

thankful

Thank you for both replies. I will start making a list of items needed for everything to approach her with the solution. There should be someone in the area that knows how to put it up for a trailer. Very grateful for your help....

Tv antennas and Tv reception

Recommend new, standard , RG-6 coax on the outside thats exposed to the weather. Here are some antenna mounts , http://www.ronard.com/909911.html , http://www.ronard.com/34424560.html. Do not have the antenna hugging the trailer , it is a good idea to have the antenna a minimum of 3 feet higher then the highest point of the trailer. Mount the antenna in a way that is Strong and Sturdy.
