Our best indoor FM Antenna that also works wonders with HD Radio.
A quick and easy way to improve the FM reception of your portable radio or stereo receiver is with an affordable FM Reflect Antenna. The FM Reflect can be bent and shaped to get the best reception from the circular polarization now used by many FM stations. If you've made the leap to HD radio, the FM Reflect is also one of the few antennas that tested well with the new digital signal.
Compared to other indoor FM antennas, the FM Reflect achieves a high signal-to-noise ratio and is less susceptible to interference from surrounding objects and people. The dipole design is more powerful than a standard dipole antenna, and delivers maximum gain across the entire FM broadcast band. Unlike ordinary dipoles, with the FM Reflect Antenna there is no fall off near the end of the FM band. In other words, this is a good FM antenna.
National Public Radio Labs has performed some HD Radio reception tests

Size: 54" all-copper element with an 8-foot feed line. Weight: 8.5 oz. Comes with "F" connector, balun spade connector and alligator clip.

I have had my dipole antenna for 3 or 4 weeks and I have yet to find the optimal position to get desired results. Will keep working with it to get things right.

Great value and addition to my CC Radio EP
Works great,pulls in weak signals
wire a bit stiff to form
In a building where it is tough to pull in stations

I'm nonetheless happy with all the C.Crane radios I bought. I have nothing but C.Crane radios in my home. I like the analog best.
I am keeping the antenna even though it did not do the job for which I bought it. I think I can use an additional FM antenna just for basic listening anyway.
I'm still NOT able to pick up the FM station for which I bought the antenna. All I know is that the station frequency is in between 2 stations (103.9 FM). There are 2 other stations on either side of it that interfere or overpower it. I'm disappointed but I'm keeping the antenna in hopes that it will help me get stations anyway.

I live in downtown Chicago -just 2 miles or so from all the big stations. I have always had trouble with static. locking in a station and multi-path distortion. I had high hopes! It didn't do the trick for me. Same issues. I picked up a little set of rabbit ears and while the issues have not gone away entirely, they are easier to adjust when the signal changes for whatever reason.
Not very pliable when trying to bend into shape.,Bought at Full price $39.99 -now i see it on sale for $19.99! Ouch!!

it's a nice antenna. i love it. it allows me to bring the bible broadcasting network into my home and that's all the way in Charlotte North Carolina at a frequency of 91.7 i think the feed line could be connected better to the antenna itself and i think the clamp could have a sturdier connection on the antenna. it clamps well to the telescopic and in the end does what it's supposed to do thus, i can't complain. it's a nice antenna and as always, CCrane takes care of my needs. peace be with you.
