Product Summary

Reception at its greatest

The High-Gain Amplified AM/FM Antenna is engineered to deliver superb AM/FM reception. It's stylish and it allows you to hear fringe stations more clearly. Even the weakest of FM signals are increased in strength because of the built-in low noise, high-gain amplifier. The results from this dramatically improve signal reception while reducing unwanted noise. This antenna features adjustable gain control with lighted indicator for boosting weak signals and reducing feedback from strong stations. Most of all, you can listen to your favorite radio stations through your home stereo or A/V receiver.

  • Boosts weak signals and reduces feedback from strong signals
  • Complements any decor

      Comments about RadioShack Amplified AM/FM Antenna:

      I work in the basement floor of a downtown bldg., I purchased the device to improve radio reception. I was disappointed when it did not. Maybe under different circumstances the device might work better, but for my needs it did not work at all.

                      I purchased one for my living room stereo and was pleased with the performance. No other antenna worked this well. We live somewhat near NYC, but FM signals are weak. This pulls them in loud and clear. Bought another one for my Bose Wave in the kitchen. Again, no other antenna worked and the one in the Wave power cord was useless. It was a little difficult to configure to attach to the radio antenna input. Signal is now loud and clear. High recommendation.

                        I bought this antenna hoping to gain lost stations as well as better reception, I was very dissapointed, it does bring in some stations better but still could not get some local stations, for the money I spend on it I should be able to pick up stations from far away.

                        Bought this to bring in fringe stations from NJ and CT as well as AM stations. Spent 2 hours trying to find optimum location using the suggestions in the owner's manual -- I need to move the antenna depending on the station! FM reception no better than the dipole supplied with the receiver -- forget AM, a bare wire gives better reception.
