Terk Technologies TOWER Amplified Indoor AM/FM Antenna

B&H # TETOWER Mfr # TOWER
You Pay: $23.03

The AM/FM Tower is a high-performance antenna that is ideal for anyone who wants superior short and long-range radio reception. It features the perfect combination of cutting edge technology and design.

The Tower's built-in amplifier strengthens weak and distant signals giving you greater control over the quality of your reception. Its Air Coil technology isolates the AM and FM elements from each other, for increased radio reception and minimizes static and noise. Plus, the Tower is easy-to-install for a set up that is fast and efficient.

Multi Directional
The Tower is designed to be an omni-directional or directional antenna. When placed vertically, it equally receives signals from all different directions. When placed flat, the antenna becomes directional and can be pointed at hard-to-get stations for better reception.
Easy Installation Slip-on Connector
It features a universal slip-on connector and matching adapters so you can use the antenna with virtually every receiver, tuner or compact music system.
Everything necessary for installation is included.

    I have purchased about a half dozen of these for me and my friends and family. It works pretty well. I'm not going to say it will reach out and pull distant stations in like they are next door, but I live about 20 miles (crow flies) from the nearest stations, and I bring them in fine. The light on the antenna is kind of bright and can not be turned off or even down, but by changing the placement is can be a great antenna that is out of sight.

    I'm not sure if it's the antennae that's lackluster, if the $500 system I connected it to is (quite possible) or if I just live in the black hole of radio reception (again, quite possible), but it really didn't improve my reception enough to give it a great review. I get radio stations on my little $10 clock radio that I can't with the system I connected this antennae to. In all honesty, I think it's the radio that is a piece of junk; the antennae helped a little (I got one clear station and no fuzzy stations before, now one clear, a bunch of fuzzy ones). So yeah, it helped, but I can still really only listen to one clear station with it.

    Didn't work for me

      Comments about Terk Technologies TOWER Amplified Indoor AM/FM Antenna:

      Having read other reviewers' comments, I knew I was taking a chance with this antenna, but I decided to give it a try. Like some others, I found it didn't help at all. I was trying to improve reception for my radio, located in the basement of my Brooklyn home, but the wire antenna that came with the radio/tuner actually worked better. Judging by other comments, urban NYC may not be an ideal environment for this antenna. Having said that, it's an attractive item and looks substantial, and I'm holding onto it in case I can find other use for it (having used a gift card, my financial loss was minimal).

          Comments about Terk Technologies TOWER Amplified Indoor AM/FM Antenna:

          The new apartment is on the top floor of the complex. The stereo reception was poor on FM and nonexistent on AM.
          With the antenna, FM is almost digital quality.
          AM is spotty and scratchy but is a major improvement.
          I have no way to reach outside window areas, so the interior walls are still a challenge.
          The box was pilfered in transit but the pilferer was looking for more valuable loot.

                    First, the package arrived without all the components. Solving that via a reasonably cooperative mfr., I hooked it up per the instructions and saw no improvement in my FM reception. The previous single wire 'antenna' did just as good a job, and maybe a little better. Your mileage may vary.

                        Looked forward to better reception on the weaker stations. So, I paired the existing indoor receiver antennas with the TOWER leads to get the best of both. However, I noticed no improvement in the AM stations (little or no reception), marginal improvement in the FM local public broadcasting reception, but a stronger sound from the local FM music stations. So, there was improvement but not enough to justify the purchase.

                        I bought the Terk antenna to replace a $3.00 bipole wire antenna that was loosely draped over a curtain rod. Although the asthetics are now much improved, my FM radio reception is about the same as before -- spotty. For improved reception, I will probably have to go back to a long wire, but this time hidden in the attic. In the meantime, the Terk antenna will make my decorator happier!

                          After the five second hook up to my new Crosley phonograph, cassette, cd, am and fm radio set and scanning the band for music stations I could not believe my ears. The reception I received from the antenna and in comparison to the one received with the set was totally awesome. I am truly one hundred percent satisfied I purchased the tower antenna. Thank you so very much for a swell product. It's wonderful!

                            It worked well on FM, but didn't do much on AM. The power booster seemed to have no effect whether it was plugged in or not. The lighted adjustment wheel didn't have any effect either.

                            I have purchased about a half dozen of these for me and my friends and family. It works pretty well. I'm not going to say it will reach out and pull distant stations in like they are next door, but I live about 20 miles (crow flies) from the nearest stations, and I bring them in fine. The light on the antenna is kind of bright and can not be turned off or even down, but by changing the placement is can be a great antenna that is out of sight.

                            I'm not sure if it's the antennae that's lackluster, if the $500 system I connected it to is (quite possible) or if I just live in the black hole of radio reception (again, quite possible), but it really didn't improve my reception enough to give it a great review. I get radio stations on my little $10 clock radio that I can't with the system I connected this antennae to. In all honesty, I think it's the radio that is a piece of junk; the antennae helped a little (I got one clear station and no fuzzy stations before, now one clear, a bunch of fuzzy ones). So yeah, it helped, but I can still really only listen to one clear station with it.

                            As they say in real estate, everything is location, location, location. This antenna absolutely did NOT improve reception on AM or FM stations. I live in a high-rise apt building in NYC, which in itself can be challenging for radio reception, but this antenna actually made it worse. Amplified does not guarantee good reception, I had better sucess with the Terk AF-2500, which I have had for years & is not amplified.

                              The TOWER Amplified Indoor AM/FM Antenna by Terk worked about as well as a regular wire. It looks really nice, it just didn't work for me.

                                  Couldn't pick up any FM stations before getting this antenna. Can get quite a few now, but only 1 or 2 AM stations and not the ones that I wanted and can pick up in my car.

                                    I know it's hard to get good AM radio reception in NYC office buildings, but I thought I would give it a shot. With the radio's internal antenna, you can get some stations. With the Audiovox antenna no stations, only static
                                    Also the Audiovox, surprisingly, did not improve FM reception, but at least it did not degrade it
