I just went to the Solid Signal site to place an antenna order that was to include two Winegard HD7695 and was surprised to see that that model as well as HD7696 were listed as "discontinued", and those two models no longer are shown on the Winegard.com website, either. Does anyone know of any dealers who still have a stash of either model?

Perhaps they are no longer making the smaller versions. But the HBU22 and HBU33 from Antennacraft should be similar, but they don't have the direct coax input and require a matching transformer balun. And the build quality may not be as good.

Yes, Winegard is really scaling back their product line. These TV antennas have been discontinued in addition to the excellent 6055 FM antenna.frown.gif

Summit Source, Warren Electronics and Stark Electronics will let you add the HD7695P to their shopping carts which means they may or may not have them in stock.

The HD-9095 and the FM-6055 are still listed on the Winegard website. I would hope they would still offer a long range UHF antenna like the 9095, unless they are preparing a replacement version. Unless they are conceding to the 91XG. And they may still have the 9032.

The 9032 & 9095 are similar, but the 9095 has 4 extra elements. I thought I would be happy with the 9032, but it's way too directional, that I could not pick up many LPTV stations with it from Chicago, while my original Philips VHF/UHF/FM combo antenna from 2002 picked up those LPTV stations, but with a pre-amp, & my current UHF antenna, Antennas Direct DB8, also picked up a lot of the LPTV stations that the 9032 would not. Living in Gary, IN, & get nearly all my stations from Chicago, the Winegard HD9032 picked up all full power stations from Chicago, but it did not seem to work as well with RF 43 & RF 44, as I got a lot of pixilation on RF 43, while RF 44 would drop out without warning quite a bit. Since switching to the DB8, the same 2 full power stations on RF 43 & RF 44 give me problems, but not as much. The LPTV station that mattered the most from Chicago is WWME-LD on RF 39, because I must get that station in order to watch Bounce on VC 23.2, or I don't get Bounce at all. With the 9032, I barely got it, due to the antenna being too directional, & required the antenna to be aimed just right.

BTW, I ordered four HD7694s Thursday evening at 6:00 PM and they took the order, but then e-mailed me at about 8:15 AM Friday that they had none to ship me and spo the shipment of my order would be held up four to seven days.

The 7695P and 7696 look very similar to the 7694P.


I ordered a 7694P and it is a fantastic antenna.
It is currently picking up a station 53 miles out on 2Edge at 65% strength on an overcast scattered storms kind of day. Im pointing close to this station but not directly at it as well.


I actually just got down off the roof and flipped the antenna 180degrees to pick up that station. I still get all the channels that I was getting before that are now coming from the backside of the antenna, and only lost 10% strength on those stations. So still 80+ percent to get another two stations, or 8 channels that are actually pretty good minus one or two.

All the other stations are 2Edge and range from 18~25 miles out.

They are of the same design, but each numerically successive numbered model has more gain. My primary market is Washington, DC , which has a channel 9 and a 36, and I often have to mix the output of a Washington market antenna with a Baltimore one that receives channels 11 and 38. The difference in field strength between those two alternate-spaced channel pairs can be 20 to 40 dB, depending on a number of factors, and in managing that signal strength differential, I benefit from having more gain coming off my Baltimore antenna, even though that gain is not necessary to meet the signal input needs for those Baltimore channels.

Confirmed from Winegard email the 9095 UHF antenna has not been discontinued. But don't know about the 7694 or 7695.
