So you are aware, it has a directional antenna in it, thus is why it needs to move. A directional antenna is more powerful than a standard omni antenna as it can “listen” in one direction like if you cup your hand around your ear. (You can hear more in the direction you are facing. Get it?)
It will then automatically point itself into the direction that has the most frequencies. As such, when you then go and run a channel scan on your TV, you will likely get the best results. Thus automatic. It will also show you the direction it had seen other frequencies and with a simple press of search, it will move to the next direction if you wanted to try another TV scan. It can also fine tune the direction if you would like with left and right rotation buttons.
I won’t get into all the install stuff in this post for you can see that in the video if you wish. But I will say it comes with everything you need to do a clean install even if you are removing a crank up style antenna! You will need Dicor Self Leveling Lap Sealant however. Which you should be carrying with you anyways in case you need to fix something on the roof.
All in all, now my entire roof seems to be Winegard! Well, for TV and data that is. (Satellite Dome, Trav’ler DISH, ConnecT V2, and now the Rayzar for OTA reception.)
Amazon Link: Winegard Rayzar
NOTICE: The LIFT for the Rayzar is something that was only being supplied to manufacturers (OEM) so their is no SKU for it yet to order on-line from. However you can order one directly from Winegard at this time.
Model: MT-7500, Cost: $50.00 Retail
You will have to call 800-288-8094 or email help @ winegard.com to get in a direct order.
5/16/19 – Note that the new after market part number is MT-8500 and you will be able to find it on Amazon at some point which will surely be at a lower price. So sure to search for it… CLICK HERE TO SEARCH
Here is the LONG video I did. I talk about what it is, do the inside install and show the before and after, and then go up on the roof to do the install itself replacing the old antenna. Hope you like it.
