Winegard to introduce new off-air HDTV antenna

December 27, 2004

sharpshooterWinegard will introduce the Sharpshooter SS-3000 at this year’s CES in Las Vegas. The SS-3000 is an off-air antenna specifically designed to receive off-air HDTV signals, while rejecting multi-path interference. The SS-3000 is said to receive and resonate DTV/HDTV transmissions from reflected broadcast signals making it well suited for urban-metropolitan locations, where line of-sight to the transmitter source is blocked. This should allow apartment & condominium dwellers a better chance at receiving digital broadcasts. In addition the SS-3000 is said to offer excellent noise rejection.

Winegard has also updated its SS-1000 Square-Shooter outdoor antenna system with a more powerful amplified version, called the Square-Shooter SS-2000. In my experience the SquareShooter was already quite a good antenna and the increased amplification of the the SS-2000 might just make it ideal for those farther away from local transmission towers.

    With OTA, you only get Network though right? No one from cable is actually using the spectrum… just those required by law?
