WiFi via TV antenna

Is there anyway to use my rooftop TV antenna to pull in a stronger WiFi signal?

You would do well to go to https://www.rvmobileinternet.com/ and take note of their experiences. They are full timers that offer up their experiences of RVing and working from the road. Not only will you find information about Wi-Fi, there is much there about cell phones, service, and cell equipment for life on the road.

Since the TV antenna is designed for a much lower frequency than those used for WiFi, I doubt it would provide any improvement.

WiFi Ranger offers some out-of-the-box solutions but expensive solutions. I went with a solution described at the Outside Our Bubble website. They link to a YouTube video that does a set by step set of instructions for getting it up & running. I added a 12V POE power supply from Streakwave since the basic system is designed to operate on 120V AC. I use a 4' - 8' extendable paint roller handle from Lowe's to hold the outside radio.
