Product Highlights
  • Passive
  • Superior Reception
  • Extended Ranges
  • No Wires/Batteries Required
  • Can Connect to Receiver or Tuner

The TERK AM ADVANTAGE is a passive indoor AM antenna designed for superior reception and extended ranges. Perfect for the sports or talk radio enthusiast, this antenna picks up stations that other antennas miss and tunes out static on many others.

The antenna can be placed right next to or on top of the AM radio-no wires or batteries are required. For an even higher level of performance, the unit can be connected to the receiver or tuner.

Enjoy AM Radio
Static and fading signals are a common problem for AM listeners especially at night. Frequently readjusting the radio in the hopes of improving reception can be frustrating as well as ineffective, especially if the station is far away. The TERK AM Advantage can help listeners overcome these obstacles and make listening to AM radio the enjoyable and often informational experience it is meant to be.
Clearer Reception
No more struggling through static to listen to your favorite talk radio show or for highlights from the big game. The AM Advantage tunes out noise and interference using TERK's Pin-Dot pre Tuning system to receive AM stations with greater clarity than ever before. Pin-Dot pre Tuning adjusts the antenna to receive a specific AM frequency. By simply rotating the dial on the unit, you'll be able to tune into the best reception possible often with dramatic results.
More Stations
What's more, TERK's Pin-Dot pre Tuning lets you pick up AM stations you were never able to enjoy before. If a station (often a distant one) is too difficult to hear above the static, most people will abandon the station. With the AM Advantage, listeners can fine tune their radio to enjoy these hard-to-receive broadcasts.
Installation Free
The TERK AM Advantage is virtually installation free. It can be simply set down next to the radio receiver or connected to a stereo using the wire that ships with the unit. The second option may provide more significant improvement in reception.
Frequency Range 540 to 1700 KHz
Reception Pattern Omni-directional
AM Output Impedance 300 ohm
VSWR (Voltage Standing Wave Ratio) <1.4
Dimensions (WxHxD) 9.5 x 9.5 x 2.5"

    My wife wanted an AM radio to listen to Talk Radio, so I bought her a very nice Tivoli model one. But alas, reception was so noisy she said she couldn't live with it and planned to return the radio. Decided to purchase the Terk AM antenna from B&H to improve reception. The improvement with the Terk was incredibly amazing and effective. She is now a happy camper listening to Talk Radio.

    I have an Onkyo receiver which comes with an am loop antenna. Because I lived in a building with cement floors and metal studs, I would hear static and noise on am stations. I brought this Terk AM Antenna hoping that it will solve the static and noise problem. But it did not! It has no improvement! The quality is the same comparing to the loop antenna which came with the receiver.

            Don't expect a miracle, but if you're out in the fringe like I am this antenna will give you the best reception possible. My station comes in now strong but with a little static. It's a little pricey but worth it.

              I live where there is an AM radio station about 35 miles away, but reception is weak and fades sometimes. I was excited to hear about the Terk AM antenna. But when I got it hooked up, it made absolutely no difference...on any distant AM station. So not sure why, but I had to return it.

                      Am receiving very positive results with a station that previously had a lot of background noise. Just one thing: The info with the antenna says that the wires are not selective - I found that is not true - experimenting with a selected lead to one side more than the other was a definite improvement.

                            I live on the Oregon coast and AM reception is not good to say the least! The Terk AM antenna worked so well in picking up Eugene stations (60 miles) that I ordered another for the garage AM radio.

                                    Solved my AM reception problem. Little loop anntena supplied with the radio didn't work and a rod anntenna on a boom box also didn't work. Hooked this up and dialed in the station and its crystal clear. Very happy with the product.

                                      This antenna does exactly what it says. A.M. stations come in clearly. I have mine wired. I think it may have a wireless option. I did not try wireless.

                                          I tried installing the antenna with the miserly instructions included with the unit. Once installed I moved the antenna to several positions - no luck. The antenna was directly connected to the receiver. This unit produced worse reception than I was getting using the old antenna I have. This unit deserves a -1 star.
                                          I plan on returning it for credit.

                                            We bought this antenna for our Delaware second home, so that we could pick up Mets radio broadcasts in NY. It really works well. The Mets station, WFAN, is a powerful station as it is, but the antenna allows for consistently clear reception, slightly better during day games than night games, when there may be more interference from those pesky traveling radio waves. Seriously, though, well worth the price.

                                              The description doesn't say this, but once you tune in a station on your radio, you then have to tune the antenna to the same station. So instead of being an antenna that boosts the signals for all stations on your radio, it requires you to change the dial on your antenna every time you change it on your radio. Besides that, it doesn't give any noticeable improvement to the signal. We tried it with every station we could think of and heard no difference whatsoever.

                                              I've three of these Terk antennae in my house. It is pretty simple: If I'm listening to AM radio in a room then the tuner there will be wired to a AM Advantage.

                                              Pros:

                                              - pretty stylish for an antenna

                                              - works well at pulling in weak signals and allows fine tuning around the frequency, not possible with modern digital tuners, to lock in on a signal.

                                              cons:

                                              - it is kind of large and hard to secrete.

                                              - works best directly wired to the tuner, it can help in unwired situations too but the efficacy is diminished considerably.

                                              In conclusion, the Terk AM-1000 is the best AM antenna that I've come across, and one of the few AM specific solutions on the market. It can improve reception considerably over the "in the box" wired antennas that manufacturers provide.

                                                I have never been able to get even decent AM Reception in my studio which is located in a factory building with a lot of machinery and steel. There is also an AM Broadcast tower nearby. With only the addition of the Terk to my receiver stations that came in as mainly static are now quite clear. Great product Terk!

                                                  I went from poor AM reception on my prefered talk station to an acceptable level of interference. I had to connect the antenna to my receiver and would recommend the longer connection cable to have more flexibility in locating the antenna for the best reception.

                                                    Comments about Terk Technologies AM-1000 AM ADVANTAGE Indoor AM Antenna:

                                                    It worked better than the small am antenna supplied with the radio but still is challenged by weaker (albeit local) stations.
