Too Fragile
The third time I wound it up it got so tangled I had to take it apart to use it again. Within 10 uses the ends came off as if they had been glued on with spit. I did better with 20ga speaker wire.
Would not buy again at any price over $1.

Great for SW reception
23' long reel antenna unrolled and re-rolls easily
Increases SW reception. Some stations I can't hear without it.
Best Uses
Unroll it completely & hang it near a window or windows for best reception.

Did NOT perform as expected
Reel retrieval and storage of wire antenna
Adds nothing to reception of radio signal strenghth
Best Uses
It was my experience that this devise was absolutely worthless! Radio reception was ONLY improved by directive re-positioning with NO added improvement in signal via attachment of the Reel Antenna.

Good Looking Antenna
Good frequency response. Optimal lowest frequency at a quarter wave length is 10mhz (234 divide by 10 is 23.4ft) The inline capacitor sort of lowers its frequency response. I was able to hear hams on the 40 meter ham band (7000khz-7300khz). It does really well on 20 meter ham band (14000khz-14350khz). AM broadcast is not a issue as they run 10Kw to 150kw. Much stronger than ham radio(1.5kw max p.e.p) It can receive weak signals well.
Wire could be thicker. 1 gauge thicker. Antenna clip could be tiighter.
Best Uses
Indoor use or dry weather outdoors.
I like this antenna. Good work C.Crane. Worth the money.

Great build quality
Feels better built then some I have bought elsewhere and loved that it actually came with a registration card I believe
Only has the clip on unlike my other cheaper made one that has clip on and plug in jack
Best Uses
great for hanging in a tree away from electrical interference
would definitely buy again

a good pocket carry antenna
I have had one of these antennas for 20 years. Its an excellent pocket carry antenna. If you need improved reception, just clip it on to the antenna rod. Its a durable antenna and with minimal care it lasts. If you like shortwave, nothing beats a portable longer wire when on the go. 73

I have taken this product out of its package and it appears to be excellent.But I know next to nothing about shortwave. The idea of shortwave enthralls me.But because I know nothing, I am afraid to try and use the reel antenna. I do not want to break it out of stupidity.So I am searching the Internet for advice. While I have found many sites, none thus far have given the stupidly clear and simple advice a newby like me craves.

  • This WiFi Antenna is hands down the best. It allows me to connect to a business almost a half mile away. Two months time and this baby paid for itself. I am a very happy with my purchase.
    — John A., Mill Valley, CA
  • This radio deserves five stars because it sounds great, the ease of use and preset stations. This radio will become your favorite radio, also backed by great customer service if ever needed, thank you very much.
    — Pete P., Santa Rosa, CA
  • This is an excellent internet radio. I have had the unit playing constantly from the time I received it. Excellent sound for such a small unit and the remote works wonderfully.
    — James H., Richmond, BC
  • Good sound, lightweight and comfortable; not too tight on the head. I like one feature; it doesn't tell you where to place the speakers, left side or right side.
    — Harry W., Manassas, VA
  • I purchase this product specifically for AM recordings and it has worked superbly. I wanted to wait awhile before I gave my opinion on the product. It has worded exactly as advertised and more.
    — Jack L., San Pedro, CA
  • Very nice, economical home lighting. If you're used to the white light of fluorescent bulb replacements, these will offer the same type with no toxic ingredients or damaging UV radiation.
    — Gary B., San Francisco, CA
  • This antenna does work well; however placement and the shape you have it bent into is very important. I live about 70 miles away from Toronto and receive a lot of Toronto FM stations static free with the FM reflect.
    — Thomas S., Buffalo, NY
  • I'm not sure how I gone this far in life without it. I just love it. The best sound ever from an AM radio.
    — James G., Springfield, MA
  • This device is awesome. As a contractor, I can not access my customer's network for security reasons. Now, with my office on the second floor, I can connect to a WiFi hotspot 1.5 miles away and my signal strength is strong!
    — Robert S., Tabernacle, NJ
  • I just received my EP radio yesterday. I'm totally impressed with the old school simplicity and the modern day sound quality. Thank you, C.Crane!
    — David C., Raleigh, NC
  • I have had only one, thank the lord, occasion to use this in and emergency situation and it worked flawlessly. Only one in the area with radio for two days of power loss... Thank you CCrane!!
    — Vernon P., Dufur, OR
  • This radio is totally fantastic!!! It will provide service in any condition and works as engineered and advertised. I am going to order more units for all family members.
    — Glen B., Bethlehem, PA
  • This radio is wonderful. Small but powerful. Several years of service and no problems.
    — William B., Litchfield, IL
  • Just received this little jewel... did not open the manual and I was listening to NPR within minutes... no kidding. I'm a radio guy and the audio is great and look forward to a lot of great listening.
