Installed a new TV antenna - Winegard 7694P

winegarddirect - Winegard 7694P

The Winegard 7694P antenna has been specifically tuned for channels 7-69. This antenna has a range for 30 miles for VHF and 25 miles for UHF signals. It is primarily an outdoor antenna and is not intended to be installed indoors.

  • Active Elements: 28 
  • Includes hardware for mounting to a mast; antenna has a 75 ohm coax connection 
  • Estimated Range: 35 miles on the VHF band and 25 miles on the UHF band 
  • Made in America! 
  • Great small range directional antenna that picks up about 30 degrees wide 
  • *Note: This antenna can receive stations 2-6 in most areas due to the fact they are generally broadcast on higher unused UHF or VHF frequency numbers in the area. Our techs can verify this with your zip code information.  
  • UHF Elements: 17 
  • VHF Elements: 11 
  • Boom Length: 65" 
  • Width: 35"

Antenna Mast

tmastco.com 10 section kit

Military surplus aluminum masting tubes. Each tube is 48 inches long by 1.785 inch outside diameter (inside diameter 1.57 inch), wall - 0.11 inch, and weigh 2.7 lbs each. The last 3.25 inches is a smaller diameter (1.55 inch OD, 1.33 inch ID) that then fits into the next mast section. This 1.55 inch diameter piece is 6 inches long and is used as an inner sleeve that forms a strong joint. The outer tube has been slightly crimped all the way around at two points to firmly hold the 6 inch piece in place (see close-up picture below). The tubes originally came with a heavy coat of dark green paint. They now have some evidence of rub marks, scratches, nicks, and a few minor dents (see picture above and example: tubes-1) due to bouncing around inside those military vehicles. The pieces slide together easily with close tolerances. This is high-grade aluminum, not the softer type used in some amateur antenna elements and booms.

Ten (10) of these stacked together forms a vertical mast of 37 feet. With a pivoting base assembly (see Accessories) and proper guying, one person can raise 37 feet easily. With more help and additional guying, greater heights are possible. An instruction/information manual is provided with each box of 10 sections on how to install a 37 ft. mast. With a Radio Shack 3 foot roof tripod (#15-517), a small VHF/UHF/WLAN vertical or yagi can be raised 16 to 24 feet without guying - just right for getting above the roof line from the outside deck/patio. For permanent installations, the tube sections can be easily locked together by drilling and inserting several machine screws per joint. Or, for temporary installations, 1/4 inch diameter bolt/washer/nut hardware can be used to hold everything together, then easily disassembled and packed-away. The screws/bolts also help to make the complete mast assembly more rigid.
