Winegard Introduces NEW ‘Sensar® with Wingman™’ Antenna for OEMs
BURLINGTON, Iowa – (August 24, 2009) – Winegard Company has a new digital television antenna for the RV OEM market. The new “Sensar with Wingman” antenna (RVW-004) combines Winegard’s industry-leading Sensar batwing antenna with the Wingman for exceptional VHF/UHF over-the-air signal reception.
The Sensar VHF/UHF antenna has always provided exceptional VHF reception. By adding the Wingman, UHF reception is boosted, optimizing the antenna for maximum signal strength and therefore maximum DTV channel reception.
“The Winegard Sensar batwing antenna is by far the most popular RV TV antenna in America with almost all RVs equipped with a factory-installed antenna.” said Aaron Engberg, Winegard Director of Mobile Products. “With the enormous success the Wingman has had in the aftermarket, it became very apparent that Winegard needed to offer its OEM customers a combination of the two products.”
With the DTV transition now complete, Winegard continues to stay on the cutting edge of television reception, Engberg added, noting that Winnebago and Airstream are leading the way in the OEM market by offering the Sensar with Wingman antenna on their new products.
