Hi folks. I have a winegard 360, not the 360+, just straight 360. It looks like I need to replace it. What would the best replacement be that would stay in the same footprint? In my class A, I had a directional crank up that did a great job for years. I realize these omnis can’t perform like that, but what are my options? BTW, this is for an ORV TT.
Thanks
Bill

You are going to want to update to a Rayzar Automatic.

I replaced our damaged antenna with a new Winegard 360.

You have any objections to installing a new Winegard Sensar IV (aka Batwing) along with the newer booster/control panel? It’s still the best overall performer.

Hoping to stay with the same footprint without drilling through the roof/ceiling. But that’s what i had in my class A, good performance.
Thanks

I had the Batwing on my previous coach and was disappointed that my new coach had the Rayzar Automatic. However, I have been very happy with this antenna compared to the Batwing. Is it as good? No, but it's pretty dang good for a dome antenna and I don't have to worry about the wind or about remembering to stow it.
I did change the roof setup to include the mount that raises the antenna about 12" above the roof (less interference from the A/C units). It is a directional antenna with a rotating antenna inside the dome so it performs substantially better than any of the omni-directional antennas. You know.....equally bad in all directions......

Just looked at the Rayzar. Max receiver capability of one? Does that mean only one TV can receive/tune the input and any other TV's connected can only view the channel that the primary TV is on?

Not sure I like that. We have two TV's in our RV and do have occasions to use both.

The Rayzar automatic has 2 TV outputs and works great on both TV's. You could also add a splitter to power 3 or 4 if necessary.
The dome on the roof has 1 coax output to the power supply input and 2 outputs for the TV's.
