Winegard announces new portable antenna (Pathway X2) specifically for Dish Network


BURLINGTON, Iowa -- Winegard Pathway X2 AntennaWinegard today introduced the Pathway X2 Portable Satellite TV antenna developed exclusively for DISH programming. The Pathway X2 represents the next generation of automatic portable satellite antennas that delivers the true HDTV experience during outdoor activities such as RVing, tailgating and camping, according to Aaron Engberg, director mobile sales channel for Winegard.

Key benefits to the Pathway X2 antenna include:

  • Automatic satellite acquisition from Eastern or Western Arc satellite orbitals
  • Ability to hook up two single-tuner receivers to allow viewing on two TVs
  • Access to all local channels in HD for both Eastern and Western Arcs in the lower 48 states (some channels and international programming may not be available)
  • Better performance with larger 18-inch reflector
Designed with a larger reflector to optimize signal strength, the Pathway X2 receives DISH HD programming from Eastern Arc orbits of 61.5 degrees, 72.7 degrees and 77 degrees or Western Arc orbits of 110 degrees, 119 degrees and 129 degrees. Unique to the Pathway X2 is the ability to access Eastern Arc locals in HD, a feature other portables aren’t always capable of offering. With automatic toggling, the user never has to hassle with aiming or re-pointing the antenna.

The Pathway X2 is compatible with DISH Solo HD Receivers 411, ViP 211, ViP 211k, and ViP 211z single-tuner receivers that also provide power to the antenna. Users simply enter in the state they are located and the antenna will automatically tune in and toggle between the appropriate satellites.

Pathway X2 comes with an easy grip carrying handle and a security eyelet that is molded into the base. Also included is 25 ft. coax cable for extra flexibility in finding the ideal location for best reception. Since the Pathway X2 gets power through the DISH receiver a power cable is not necessary.

The Pathway X2 will be available Aug. 2013.
