Using a HDTV Signal Strength Meter to find an over the Air Signal
Posted by KING Connect on 15th Sep 2021
OTA Signal Strength Meter
A digital over-the-air signal meter allows you to find the direction of the strongest tv broadcast signals and easily rotate and lock your directional OTA tv antenna in that direction to pick up the maximum amount of channels. This comes in handy for RVers who have a directional OTA TV antenna installed on the roof of their RV - everytime they relocate their RV, they have to repoint their antenna toward the signals. A signal strength meter allows RVers to take advantage of the superior strength and performance of directional OTA antennas, without the hassle of having to manually try to find where optimal signal reception is.
The premium model KING Jack™ includes a built-in signal meter for the best free HDTV experience. The patented KING SureLock™ Digital TV Signal Meter simplifies antenna aiming, taking the guesswork and frustration out of finding local TV channels. Simply rotate the antenna using the interior knob and the built-in signal meter detects digital TV signals as you rotate, indicating the best position for maximum reception.

How to Use an OTA Signal Meter
Since the transition of free over-the-air (OTA) TV programming from analog signals to digital signals in 2009, pointing your directional TV antenna – from an RV, travel trailer or even a second home – has become difficult and often time consuming. Unless your antenna is pointed directly at the TV tower, it is impossible to find channels when doing a channel scan. The KING SureLock signal meter ensures you are pointing in the right direction for a successful channel scan.
The SureLock signal meter is designed to ease your frustrations by simplifying the process of finding and locking onto an OTA TV signal from your directional antenna. Here’s how it works: The meter connects to any TV antenna output, or it can be installed in-line between your antenna and TV. When you rotate your antenna, the SureLock provides real-time LED feedback indicating signal strength, so you know the exact moment you lock onto a signal – no more guessing! It also has a variable sensitivity adjustment to work both near and far from the TV towers.
