Often it is an additional hour of frustration when making camp ending in a sense of failure and a discussion with the DW that she won’t be binge streaming Victoria on Masterpiece from that particular campsite.
BTW, tell the DW the Prince didn't die (yet) two more kids to sire and the footmen gets left waiting, she's not leaving her child to go to America. Oh another BTW my DW watched every episode of Downton Abbey. LOL 👍

WeBoost Experiment Update

Thank you all for the input! We just completed a five week trip and the WeBoost hookup/antenna worked great. Just wanted to pass along some pix of what I did.

TBone,

Thanks for the update. I'm glad it is working for you.

How reliable were the suction cups? What was the longest period of time you had them attached?

And one more question: Where did you fasten the suction cups?

By the way, we put our amplifier unit on the underside of the cabinet, because it gets pretty hot and we wanted it to have the best possible cooling. Our indoor antenna is a much larger wall-mounted unit. It is installed above the TV.
