I'm considering adding the Wingman to my Winegard batwing attenna. For those of you that have done this, is it worthwhile, ie, did you notice an improvement?

Make sure your antenna is equipped with the booster. If it is, get the wingman.

My take- if the antenna is 10 years old, replace the head with the wingman equipped Sensar IV- not a whole lot more than adding a wingman, but you get all new electronics.

Agree on replacing with the Sensar IV. Made a siginificant change when we upgraded. 60+ mile range, but very directional.

I've also had the Sensar Pro installed for about 3 years. Just got to thinking about the Wingman again.

Chris,
My batwing is about 6 years old. I emailed Wingard a couple years ago and they said if I add the Sensar-Pro and the Wingman, I would basically end up with the equivalent of the Sensar IV setup.

yes, we did. and with more stations changing transmitter frequencies to UHF it’s almost a necessity.
