        Comments about RadioShack Matching Transformer:

        Item does what it is designed to do. The only problem I had with The Shack, was I had to go to 2 locations in order to get this item.

        Also later in the day I went to a local home improvement store for other items and found it for 1/6 the price!!!

          Works just fine if you understand it's application. Don't blame poor FM reception on an Impedance transformer.

          Comments about RadioShack Matching Transformer:

          Radio even played better without it.
          This item is a total joke.
          I'd be better off with a wire hanger!

              Comments about RadioShack Matching Transformer:

              Just like the description says, connects the F-connector of my radio to the wire of my RS FM dipole antenna I bought to improve reception. Very easy to use; unlike the antenna I was using before, it doesn't even have to be screwed on to the F-connector; it just pops right on. Couldn't ask for more.
