TV antenna

Anyone know if the Winegard TV antenna up on the roof is suppose to be loose. The base and post it sits on is solid but the disc itself is wobbly on the post, it won't come off but its not solidly mounted.

They are all wobbly because of the way the disc connects to the post and they can come off. Mine did last year.

Mine was loose and I was able to tighten it to the base.

I took mine off to relocate it. The bottom of the disc is a large screw that screws into the post. If yours is loose you should be able to simple screw it into the post to tighten it. Mine had no locking nut - but it has never needed one. If yours comes loose again you could probably use a bit of sealant on the threads.

BTW, I relocated mine to the top of the AC to give room for an extra solar panel. I made shorter support brackets to minimize the height increase. It seems to vibrate a bit due to the flexible AC cover, but no problems in 10,000 miles. I used a big piece of sheet metal on the inside of the AC cover to distribute the load of the support brackets.

They changed antennas for the 2015 model year and later. It is a smaller disc mounted on a single stationary post.

I was thinking I would remove mine but now I wonder after seeing they still put them on?
Do they even broadcast tv over the air anymore?
if I did remove it what to do with cable? Cut it and push below roof and seal? Coil it up and leave on roof?

Don't remove your TV antenna! They will be broadcasting over the air for years to come.

Re what you receive on an OTA antenna, I was surprised. If somewhat near a metro area, you may get the networks, and also several old movie channels, GetTV, etc. sort of fun to experiment.
