To use, tune to a very weak signal and rotate your radio alone for best reception.
Blind man Wayne
I was getting a very low signal from my local Radio National (AM station) and this product now allows me a clear crisp listening experience.
Don
I was hoping this antenna would improve the am reception on my radio but it didn't help at all.

I'm a stickler for performance, and have high expectations for electronic equipment... especially when I hear fellow users raving about a certain product.
After getting the Terk AM Advantage to use primarily with my CC Radio, I have to say I'm not dissappointed. Giving it 5 stars would be saying that it goes beyond my expectations. The 4 star rating means that it comes pretty damn close!
Anyway, it does a fine job. The great thing, is that it can be used with ANY radio with or without external antenna terminals. I find it seems to work better without the hookup. Tuning the stations can be a bit tricky at times. The dial is slightly off and registers a station a few kHz higher than it is, and must be turned various ways near the radio to accurately do its job. It even seems to do quite well at being able to resist stronger signals that are adjecent to weaker ones.
For the AM DX'er, or lover of good `ol AM radio in general, it's an answer to a prayer!

This AM loop antenna does a remarkable job at its price point! It works by concentrating the radio station's signal and sharing it with your radio's built-in ferrite bar antenna through inductive coupling (no wire connections necessary). It can, however, be connected to a radio's external antenna terminals if your radio has no internal ferrite bar antenna. It works best with inductive coupling though. To use, tune to a very weak signal and rotate your radio alone for best reception. Then place the TERK next to your radio and adjust its tuner until you hear an increase in signal strength. Peak the signal by carefully adjusting the TERK's tuner control. Then experiment by moving the antenna around your radio until you get the best signal. Once the TERK has been positioned for best reception, there's no need to move it again when tuning in other stations. It will be necessary, however, to retune the antenna each time you change frequency on your radio. Some consider this to be a pain, but I think it's fun! The TERK's tuning dial is a bit inaccurate. Therefore, tune it by ear listening carefully for an improvement in signal.

Additionally, AM signals are directional and often require rotating of the radio for best reception. The TERK and the radio should be rotated as one unit, that is to say, together as one. Therefore, a Lazy Susan is a great way to accomplish this task.

I have not seen a radio that doesn't show improvement of reception when used with the TERK. Even the GE SUPER RADIO, which is already a very sensitive radio, will deliver improved AM reception with the TERK. The TERK's measure of effectiveness varies from one radio to another. The TERK works especially well with small cheap radios, often boosting their reception remarkably!

Based on some of the negative comments made about this product, I have to guess that either the person does not completely understand how to use this 'toy', or their particular unit was defective. This type of antenna HAS to be TUNED for best performance. This unit is tuned in two different ways, for two different purposes.

But first, this unit can be 'connected' in two ways: If your radio has "AM Antenna" terminals, you can use the 'connect wire' so that there is a "physical" connection between the two pieces. If your AM Radio DOES NOT have an "AM Antenna" terminal - this means it has a "Built-In" Antenna, or even if it does have "AM Antenna" terminals - but ALSO has a built-in antenna, you can "magnetically couple" the TERK to the Radio's built-in antenna.

To "magnetically couple" the antennas simply means to place them physically close, so that their magnetic fields interact. As you rotate the TERK you will find that the signal will become stronger in some position, weaker in others.

FIRST - YOU MUST ADJUST THE TUNING DIAL ON THE TERK "EVERY TIME" YOU CHANGE STATIONS. Sorry folks, but the tuning dial is on the TERK for a reason - to be used. First dial in your Radio - then dial in your antenna, that is the process. (NOTE: The dial is an approximate, like old radios - before digital) Yes, if you live in a Metro area, or near a AM transmitter(s) - some stations will come through regardless of the antenna being mis-tuned. OK, that was the first Antenna Tuning step - the tuning dial. STEP TWO - is very similar to the "magnetic coupling" I described above, think of it as turning it on a Lazy-Susanne (as a matter of fact you SHOULD get a Lazy-Susanne, or a similar turntable for this toy).

This antenna is a best AM antenna for the baseball, news, George
Noory(Coast to Coast AM) listener. Its also used by many AM radio DXers, beginner and experienced, and it also uses no power
The TERK AM antenna is a best designed antenna, and TERK did it right this time, lets see if they can conquer the same with FM someday. I have had mine since 1999 , and does wonders for my AM on my Sony stereo system. I also use with it with the ATS-909 shortwave receiver for directional station listening, and get this if you are good at rotating antennas, you can carefully null out the local station, and bring
in the other stations you can't receive before. Its similar to the other type called the select-A-tenna. It also covers 510 kHz to 1720 kHz, for dail tuners it takes patience to null and
peak, and to digital tuners its easy to peak up the currently received station. I hope you like this one, its better than
the AM stereo antenna that was supplied with the stereo, and it
increases selectivity on your current tuner and other radios.
