Winegard’s Carryout MP1: Satellite TV Antenna
Winegard Co. introduces the Carryout MP1 manual portable satellite TV antenna. The Carryout is extremely compact and weighs only nine pounds. “Extensive market research showed us that there is a definite niche in the market for consumers who want a portable and affordable satellite TV antenna,” said Aaron Engberg, director of Winegard’s mobile products, in a news release. “Not everyone who wants a satellite TV system has an RV to mount it on, so our new Carryout MP1 satellite TV antenna is aimed directly at those consumers.” The manual antenna stores in a compact, durable case that doubles as the antenna base when in use. The case features an easy-grip handle for carrying or locking down. A bubble level, compass and elevation markings molded into the base make set-up quick and easy. The Carryout MP1 comes with 25 feet of coax cable to allow for optimal antenna placement. The case with antenna measures 16 inches wide, 18 1/2 inches high and 10 inches deep. The unit supports two receivers (not included), and it is compatible with DIRECTV (standard only) and DISH Network (standard and HD). MSRP: $199.
