Excellent simple FM dipole antenna.
on December 19, 2012
I've been a ham radio operator since I was a little kid, experienced in HF to microwave. I needed a 300-ohm matched FM antenna for my KLH Model 21 restoration and this antenna was the perfect match, literally. It's well built for its intended use as an indoor antenna. Like any antenna, you'll have to move it around to find peak reception on your favorite station and then pin it up in that position. I was able to bring a fringing, in-the-noise NPR station 50 miles away to full quieting with this dipole.
Note that this antenna is made for radios with twin antenna terminals for 300-ohm antennas. If you have a 75-ohm connector (with an F connector, for instance), you'll need a 300-ohm to 75-ohm transformer like this http://www.amazon.com/300-Ohm-UHF-Matching-Transformer/dp/B0002ZPIOG or one like this http://www.amazon.com/Parts-Express-Push-On-Type-Balun/dp/B0002ZPIOQ depending on your connection gender.
This antenna is simple and effective. Nice.
