Availability Details

Close
This item has been discontinued by the manufacturer and is no longer available.

It's a fact: almost all receivers and rack systems include nothing more than a "T" wire dipole antenna for FM reception. Supplied more as a courtesy than anything else, these throwaway "low-tech" antennas provide marginal reception performance at best, with high susceptibility to noise and interference along with poor directionality and limited placement options.

TERK's AM/FM+ antenna provides a dramatic improvement in reception at an extremely modest cost. The AM/FM+ is omni-directional, receiving signals equally from all directions to assure great reception wherever your equipment is placed in the room. The AM/FM+ is designed to reduce noise and static to an absolute minimum, to receive more stations with superb clarity.

Gamma-Loop Technology
You want to listen to music, not static. That's why the AM/FM+ incorporates TERK's patented Gamma-Loop technology, with specialized noise-reducing antenna elements that provide clearer reception of a greater number of nearby stations. With the AM/FM+, you'll enjoy more stations with less static.
Easy to Connect and Use
The AM/FM+ is simple to connect and use-just plug it into your radio or receiver. The AM/FM+ comes complete with matching transformers for 75 ohm and 300 ohm antenna inputs, allowing fast, easy connection to virtually every radio, receiver or compact music system. The AM/FM+'s compact design blends in with most any decor.
Wall Mount Option
While any antenna can be placed on or next to the radio or receiver, the AM/FM+ is one of the few that may also be mounted on the wall. In addition to providing an alternative decorative choice, wall mounting may improve reception by allowing the AM/FM+ to be placed in a more favorable area for reception, as well as separating the antenna from noise and interference that may be radiated from audio components and other electronics.

      This unit is very passive. I put this indoors next to a window on the second floor and it seems very directional. Point one way for one station and another way for other stations. I moved to to another part of the house and same thing.

      Comments about Terk Technologies AF-2500 AM/FM+ Indoor AM/FM Antenna:

      Fm has improved with twice as many stations now available;however Am signal is very weak here and the antenna helps to pull in stations
      but can not improve on lack of signal,not the antenna fault,overall a good investment.

        Can't believe how this product cleaned up the signal I was receiving, both AM & FM, on the brand name receiver I am listening to. It helped on the signal strength and noise/static. And I received it when B&H said I would. Would definitely order another one.

            I live in an apartment building and radio reception is weak.

            With the Terk antenna I am able to listen to FM stations with strong signals.

            AM station reception is poor.
            I think this is due to living in an apartment building; not the antenna

              This cheap antenna worked like a charm. Easy to set-up, with crips clear instructions, and enough accesories to meet unexpected circumstances. The difference in reception was as night and day.

                    It is easy to install, and we now can get the FM stations that we wanted to listen to. Before using the antenna, we could only get one FM station. It is also non-directional, so we just mounted it above the system.

                      I recently purchased an early 1960's tube tuner. The system is located below ground level in a suburban area. My initial set up was with a standard "T" antenna. The Terk made a marked improvement on reception. Strongly recommend.
