Winegard Sensar

My 71 had a Skyliner. I am now putting in a Sensar. The Skyliner is long gone but the wiring including the antenna wire is still there. It's not the flat antenna wire I grew up with in home applications in the 60s, but not coaxial either.

I would appreciate any advice about wiring it in.

Is an amplified antenna worth it? From my experience I see little difference in performance between amplified and unamplified. Should I get a amplified Sensar head or can I/ should I put an amplifier inside?

When the Sensar is folded down if I have it lined up with the roof center line the tip of the Sensar will lay on top of the middle ceiling vent. Any reason I should not/ ould not mount the Sensar so that if folds down slightly off center at about a 5 degree angle to miss the vent? I am thinking I can pretty easily bend an aluminum support like the old Skyliner had.

If anyone knows of a Braund TV Antenna that is available, I am most interested in one. Oops, not trying to hi-jack this thread, so PM is fine.
