The Winegard HD-7698P








51.5” wide, 33” high, 167” deep

Antenna weight: 10 lb. 


The Winegard literature is correct: The antenna is for channels 7-69.  So this antenna was obsolete on June 12.  In every other respect this seems like a good antenna.  But throwing away 2 dB for a short-lived market advantage seems silly to me.


The antenna has a combiner/balun that employs a ferrite transformer balun.  Just from looking at it I would say it might be especially low loss for a transformer balun.  But presently I have no way to measure the loss in such devices.


This antenna has no useful reception for channel 2-6.  The UHF part of the antenna is 86 inches long.
