Terk antennas always do the job! Basic Terk Antenna did the intended job, improved reception of the fading stations we wanted. Everything arrived from B&H as their representative stated.

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.

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

    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.

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

        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.
