  • It performs better than any indoor FM antennas listed on Amazon; this simple design will give you excellent FM reception affordably.
  • It is packaged to be turnkey, providing everything you need for best indoor or portable reception including 9' of coax and a screw-on F connector.
  • To unleash the true reception power of this antenna mount it vertically as high as you can get it in your home on an outer wall or window.
  • It is fully omni-directional when mounted vertical and it has directional characteristics towards the flat side when mounted as rabbit ears or horizontal which helps handle multi-path and other issues that are characteristic of FM broadcast band reception.

Product Description

Frequency Range: 88-108 MHz; Polarization: Vertical, Horizontal, or circular; Attached cable length: 9'; Connector: Male F (standard); Weight: 4 ozs; Height: 32" maximum per radial This is a brand new, unused professionally manufactured 1/2 wave dipole antenna with tunable rods that allow this antenna to be used where outside antennas are not allowed or are inconvenient. This antenna will provide as strong reception as almost any indoor antenna on the FM band. This antenna was produced for the FM band. With the rods fully extended they are tuned at 88 Mhz and you can then shorten them if you have a target frequency that is higher in the FM band. A length chart is provided so you can measure, with your tape measure or yard stick, the exact length each rod needs to be for a particular frequency. This antenna is directional when used in the V configuration so use that to your advantage for your target station or orient it for best reception for the majority of your target stations. The rods are adjustable so you can adjust it exactly to the frequency of your goal station. Place the antenna as high as possible for best reception. Generally, the common orientation for the radials in a V shape at 90 degrees with the flat side towards your target but using it vertically unlocks the true potential of this amazing performer and makes it non-directional; use the full vertical position if you can for the best results. This antenna can be used near the stereo or it comes with a total of 9' of cable so you can put it near a window for best reception. You can use it in a portable setting or even mount it in the attic as it will out-perform any other omnidirectional you can place in the attic. The only limitation would be that it should not permanently be set up outside, but it wouldn't hurt it to use it outside on the patio or take to a park in any weather just don't leave it outside permanently.

Verified Purchase
This is nothing but a very flimsy version of the "rabbit ear" antenna that used to come with old portable TVs. The usual 300-ohm twin lead has been replaced with a piece of cheap 75-ohm coaxial cable, soldered to the two sections within the plastic center piece. That plastic center is a dead giveaway as to the original design - it's made to stick into the hole in the back of a portable TV. I wouldn't recommend flexing any part of it very much, as the elements and solder connections will probably break. My guess is that this company bought a bunch of cheap surplus TV rabbit ears and "converted" them to FM antennas. In their defense, it will function just fine "electrically", because the FM broadcast band is located just above the old analog TV channel 6, so the telescopic elements are in the correct range for the proper dipole wavelength. They also supply a chart for the proper length vs. frequency and an extension cable that is a bit higher quality than the antenna itself. The positioning instructions for directional vs. omni-directional use are technically accurate. I would only recommend this for someone who will handle it gently, install it in one spot, and not flex it around much.
