Winegard recently introduced the compact Carryout G2 automatic satellite TV antenna designed for use while RVing, camping, tailgating and other outdoor activities.
The new and improved antenna is almost half the size than its predecessor, the Carryout (GM-1518), and features a sleeker lightweight design, the Burlington, Iowa-based company said in a news release.
The Carryout G2 portable satellite antenna is fully automatic and is quick and easy to setup, Winegard said. With two coaxial outputs, two TVs can be connected (receivers and programming sold separately). The antenna is powered through a 12V output (included), but can be connected to a 110V outlet with a power converter (sold separately).
“The Carryout G2 pushes the ‘size-versus-performance-trade-off’ common to satellite antennas to the limit,” said Aaron Engberg, director Mobile Sales Channel for Winegard. “Reducing the size by 40 percent from our original Carryout, without a single compromise in performance, is truly what makes Winegard the leader in antenna design. Consumers want smaller, faster, better and Winegard has once again delivered with the Carryout G2.”
The antenna is compatible with Dish (standard and high def), DirecTV (standard def) and Bell TV (standard and high def in Canada).
Several mount options are available by Winegard. Raising the Carryout G2 antenna off the ground raises the look angle for better reception while also protecting it from the elements or hazards when placed on the ground. Both the tripod mount (TR-1518) and permanent roof kit mount (RK-2000) are currently available (sold separately). Winegard also has plans to unveil a window mount and rear semi-truck cab mount by summer.
