Capture AM like Never Before
The Twin Coil Ferrite® AM Antenna is ideal for improving most AM radio reception problems. No matter what kind of radio you're using, the antenna will significantly reduce nighttime fade out and help reduce static and distortion. The Twin Coil can double the audio clarity of any weak station during the day.
The antenna is designed to work with everything from portable radios without antenna connectors to home stereos with wire antenna terminals. The ferrite stick works on radios without antenna connectors.
The weather resistant antenna element is capable of picking up a clean signal some distance from your radio and sending it to the radio and overriding the static. This feature alone can make it the ideal AM antenna because there is no other way to get a clear signal.
The antenna element has directional characteristics. By rotating the antenna element in a window or outside you can improve the signal strength. As with any AM Antenna, you will need to take the time to experiment to find the best location.
Patch cords, antenna, tuner, ferrite stick, mounting hardware and AC Adapter are included. Optional 50' cable available, see below. Runs on included AC Adapter or 9V battery (not included). Tuner Size: 3.25" W x 4.3" H x 1.4" D. Weight: 4.5 oz. Antenna Element Size: 8.6" W x 2.5" H x 1.5" D. Weight: 8.5 oz. Pat. #US 6,529,169 B2

Signal levels and the number of stations receivable... dramatically increased/improved w/o a corresponding increase in noise level.
Very compact and extremely simple to use/ the stacked coarse and fine tuning controls are ultra-convenient
Placement of the antenna element on a wooden lazy Susan makes this a directional tool to maximize reception also provides an option to null/tune out stations on the same frequency

I've owned this antenna for several years, and find it works very well to help dig out distant AM stations. It's very flexible, and I purchased several extension cables to allow the receiving antenna to be located away from my receiver.
Very well thought out active AM antenna with several hookup options.
Like all active antennas, some hardware/cables to deal with, but worth it flexibility.
