Winegard is displaying two new satellite TV antennas developed exclusively for DISH programming during the at the 51st Annual National Rv Trade Show, which opened today (Dec. 3) at the Kentucky Expo Center in Louisville. According to a press release, Winegard is exhibiting in Booth No. 27.

Winegard will unveil the Pathway X1 and the Pathway X2 portable satellite TV antennas, which were just introduced to the consumer market. The units work with existing DISH subscriptions, as well as the convenient and pay-as-you-go service.

The Pathway X2 represents the next generation of automatic portable satellite antennas that delivers the true HDTV experience during outdoor activities such as RVing, camping and tailgating.

Key benefits to the Pathway X2 antenna include:

• Truly optimized for two-receiver seamless viewing (made possible by 72.7˚ reception).

• Larger 18-inch reflector for the best portable satellite experience throughout U.S. and in all weather conditions.

• First portable to access both eastern and western Arcs for maximum coverage and HD reception.

• 100% automatic. Faster setup and satellite acquisition with the antenna powered through customized DISH receiver interface.

• Single cable set up – coax cable hook up to receiver.

• HD Ready and compatible with DISH pay-as-you-go programming (programming packaging sold separately).

The Pathway X1 is one of the most compact and smallest satellite TV antenna of its type on the market, the company said. Requiring 40% less space than Winegard’s popular Carryout GM-1518, the X1 is ultra lightweight and ideal for the “on the go” lifestyle.

Key benefits to the Pathway X1 antenna include:

• Fastest acquisition time of any other DISH automatic portable satellite TV antenna.

• Unique ability to permanently convert the portable to a roof mounted antenna without having to pay the high price of a roof mounted antenna (roof kit sold separately).

• Easier to handle, weighing in at just 10 pounds.

• Single cable set up – coax cable hook up to receiver.

• HD Ready and compatible with DISH Pay-as-you-go programming (programming packaging sold separately).

Both Pathway antennas are for stationary use only and cannot use them to watch live television while traveling down the road.

Winegard SensarPro

Burlington, Iowa-based Winegard Co., a leader in the design and manufacture of TV reception products for the RV market, has released the Winegard SensarPro, a new device that solves the frustrations of locating TV channels in an RV. Designed to work with all amplified Sensar antennas, the Winegard SensarPro is an all-in-one product that acts as a signal meter, adjustable amplifier and wall-plate power supply. SensarPro is a sophisticated evolution of Winegard’s powerful signal meter technology.

“Finding local programming used to be a fairly simple task back in the days of analog signal when reception could be fine tuned by slowly adjusting the antenna and watching the television screen as the picture improves,” explained Aaron Engberg, Winegard director of mobile products. “Ever since the 2009 digital transition, RVers have struggled to find local channels; with a digital signal, you either have it or you don’t. The Winegard SensarPro gives visual and audio feedback to make locating TV signals fast and efficient.”

Ready out of the box and easy to install, the Winegard SensarPro can also be customized for specific search modes, eliminating guesswork and frustration. SensarPro offers three benefits for better TV reception, including:

• It displays signal strength of channels and allows you to find peak signal strength prior to channel scan on your TV.

• Built-in amplification gives RVers up to 10 dB of gain for increased performance or the ability to lower the gain when positioned near a tower.

• Adjustable audio feedback comes in handy to make aiming the Sensar antenna quick and easy.

Available in black or white to match any décor the SensarPro has a $69.99 MSRP.
