Good antenna for a good price.I mounted this antenna to one of the roof joists in my garage and it seems to work pretty good. I did not have the original one wire antenna that came with the receiver so I can not compare the amount or quality of stations between the two styles. I am able to pick up all the local stations loud & clear and in "Stereo" that I was interested in and also receive some stations that I am not familiar with that I do not even pick up in the car. On one partly cloudy & very humid day one of the main stations that I like to listen to was pretty staticky. I figured I would try it inside the garage for awhile and see how it works before I deal with mounting it on the outside. It was very simple to assemble, it took me like maybe five minutes and also very easy to use the mounting bracket to attach it securely to the roof joist.4Best FM Antenna I've had so far and the price is unbeatable!I've tried several indoor FM antenna's with very disappointing results, so I finally decided to try this one by Stellar Labs. Yes, it looks bulky as it is about 18" in diameter and is basically made to be mounted outside on a pole of some sort, and although I can do that I wanted to try it inside first. There are two stations I like that are about 50 miles away that are really hard to get if at all, but with this antenna, I got them both with good strengths where the Stereo light is locked on! And, I picked up more stations I didn't know existed, impressive. Notice I only used a scrap piece of 3/4" copper pipe with brackets to mount it against a piece of scrap 2"x4" wood. I have no doubt if I mount this antenna outside, the reception would be even better, but I'll keep it inside for now out of the weather. Also, by rotating it around experimenting to get better reception DOES work slightly. You want a good FM antenna with this $21 price? This is it!5This just might solve your problem...for a modest price, and a minimum of fuss.I was looking to enhance my FM reception because we listen to two hard-to-get stations; one weak local (we live in the Buffalo area) station, and one from Toronto, which is about 60 miles away as the crow flies. Although the reviews were generally good on this antenna, I didn't buy it at first for two reasons: 1) didn't want to mount it outside, and 2) it has an advertised range of only 35 miles. A couple reviewers said they successfully used it inside, and the price was right so I decided to take a chance. It was easy to assemble (in spite of what some reviewers said) and I am not that handy. I needed a converter to connect the twin 300 ohm leads on the back of my FM tuner to the 75 ohm coaxial connector on the antenna. This converter was only $5.00, also available from Amazon. When I connected the antenna, I just located it on the top of a tall cabinet where my stereo system is located. You can hardly see it up there so the fact that it looks like it belongs on a roof mount didn't matter. Most importantly, the reception on my two difficult stations improved markedly. This was important because we listen to FM on a high end stereo system that magnified every bit of hiss and static that was coming from the the cheap dipole antenna I was using before. As far as I am concerned the product is a winner, although I do not live in a remote area. My guess is it would work fine there, too, although you might have to mount it outside.5I got this to replace the cheap wire antenna that ...I got this to replace the cheap wire antenna that comes with most receivers / tuners, but wanted something inexpensive for indoor use and small enough to sit out of sight on an equipment rack. I have not had much luck in the past with amplified indoor antennas. This works very well. The assembled diameter of the antenna ring is 18 inches, but the longest length is just short of 19 inches (see photo) due to the cross bar. The height is essentially 3 inches (see photos, one with a 3-inch tape measure sitting on end next to it.), except that the 75ohm connection extends this higher (see photo of antenna on shelf). I removed the center mounting bracket (two 10mm nuts) because it was not needed. To assemble, you need an average to small philips screwdriver and you can (and maybe should) use fingers to tighten two small 7mm nuts. When assembling, do the screwdriver / nut end of the connections first, and when these are done, then clip the U-turn sections of the antenna into the plastic bracket at the other end. There is discussion here about this not being omnidirectional. It is omnidirectional, but it does not pick up signal equally from all directions, and I noted a difference when rotating it on my shelf. I have included a photo of the pickup pattern, which is not a perfectly round circle, and shows greater pickup along one diameter, and weaker pickup along the diameter with a 90 degree rotation.5Makes a cool frisbee... That s about it!Junk! I installed this in my attic and tried repositioning it but the result is the same....JUNK!I live 40 miles from downtown Atlanta and you d think I live in Siberia because I get nothing with this antenna. The simple wire antenna that came with my Yamaha HD receiver gets far more stations than this antenna but both give me problems with HD signals. I m using this for a frisbee and buying a directional Yagi style next.UPDATE:I taped the wire that came with my receiver on my wall in a way I get every HD station strong. This circular antenna is still in my attic trying to find a signal. Don t waste your money.1BRINGS IN MORE STATIONS THAN MY HIGH END RECEIVER CAN REMEMBERSiting out at the tip of Cape Cod. I pick up stations from Boston, south to southern Mass. Picks up more stations than my high end receiver has memory for and reception is perfect. Can't ask for any more than that.You may want to update the instructions to explain that you need to apply force and bend the elements and catch them in place. I would have sworn that something was missing and I would break the elements of I forced them into place as per the diagram. But sure enough, I forced them into place and they didn't break. I used the mount to place it high on the roof of my house. The lead in is about 80 feet.5WOW - it really works !!This antenna really works !!I bought a Sangean HDT-1 tuner specifically to listen to a jazz station about 40 miles away. I hooked up my rooftop TV antenna and I could not get the station. Then I used the included Di-Pole antenna will so/so results. In good weather I could usually get the jazz station, but it would often drop out.When this Stellar Labs antenna arrived I assembled it and laid it down on my dining room table. As soon as I connected the antenna wire to my tuner the jazz station came in with full signal strength !!I ended up hanging the antenna from the ceiling in a closet and I always get full strength and have never lost the station, ever. I also get several other stations that I never knew existed.I will note that I don't think this antenna is truly Omnidirectional. During my final installation I rotated it to get the strongest signal for the station I was specifically interested in and it made a big difference. Even their instruction manual indicates that the antenna isn't Omnidirectional.However, it works great for me and I wouldn't hesitate to buy it again.5Very Good Antenna-- But I Almost Sent It Back!This is a very good antenna-- but I almost sent it back!Why?It is advertised as "outdoor omnidirectional," but it is not truly omnidirectional, and-- get this-- it can be used successfully indoors! I found out the hard way-- after mounting it outdoors near the peak of a three-story house in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Some rotational adjustment of the antenna is necessary depending on the direction of the FM stations I like to listen to, especially distant, urban FM stations. I can't imagine getting up on a ladder to twist and turn it in the right direction if I want to fine tune the FM reception each time I change a station, can you?I took the antenna down, and I was about to pack it up for a return, when I said to myself, "Let me give it one final try-- installing it indoors, on the interior of my third-floor bedroom, mounting it on something that I can easily adjust." So, I put the antenna on an old 1-inch x 4-foot wooden pole-- a former curtain rod-- wedging the pole vertically in between the contours of a hot-water radiator that is in front of a window. I plugged the coaxial cable that I had attached to the antenna into to the back of my Bose Wave Radio, and "Voila!" FM stations that had been previously inaccessible began to come in loud and clear.This old, wood frame house has a clear view of the Eastern horizon, but the Kittatinny Ridge over in New Jersey prevents any signals reaching me from New York City, 68 miles away. However, if I twist the pole mount on its axis about 20 degrees to the south, I am able to get a clear signal from my favorite public radio station, WHYY-FM, Philadelphia, which has its transmitter located in Roxborough, 67.5 miles from my house. If I rotate it a few degrees more to the East, I get WPRB-FM, Princeton University, which is 56 miles away. These distances are all straight-line measurements. According to the map on the Radio Locator web site, I am OUTSIDE the fringe reception area for both of these stations, but thanks to this antenna, the signals come in clearly.One word of advice: The wide black plastic clip that joins the two pieces of the antenna together is a pretty good pointer. For Philadelphia stations to the South of here, I rotate the antenna until this plastic clip is roughly pointing in the direction of Philadelphia.None of this is in the directions, of course.I am now very happy with this antenna.4Cost-effective and easy to mount to flat structuresThis works unexpectedly well... I bought it for my boat, knowing that the hardware is not at all marinized, but needing something quickly without a big installation project topside. I put it under the overhang of the after-deck, tossing the steel mast-mount hardware and making a quick bracket with some aluminum extrusion I had lying around (with a couple of holes through the central support tubing). The cable passes through a Blue Sea Cable Clam and on to a Fusion stereo.And it works beautifully! It's not the most physically robust structure, but it is well-supported and I've been pleasantly surprised. Just thought I'd post this with a photo to suggest alternative mountings if you don't have a standard mast to work with; the square central tube makes it easy to use other attachment methods, as to a beam in an attic.5Works as Advertised. Good antenna, definitely increased range and reception. Full disclosure, I am a Quality Engineer in Aerospace, so I know a few things about overall "Quality". I have experience with antennas for Rockets, and can say that this is advertised as "omni-directional", it is not. That being said, the antenna offers a good standard design and simple antenna construction with 3/8 tubing, soldered connectivity and coaxial connector. Naturally, they do not supply coax. I live remotely and it is difficult to get reception here and my stations are/were snowy. This antenna did the trick. I mounted it in the roof rafters of the garage, to a plastic tube base so that the reception was completely dependent upon the antenna itself and not via the attachment and pole. Stations are reasonable clear to completely clear. considering my location, I am satisfied with its performance. As stated this is NOT omni-directional, so I left the stereo on while connecting the coax to the antenna and then manipulating the antenna for best reception. Once I found the optimal orientation, I fix the mounting and tighened the wingnuts. Securing cable with coax clamps prevents stress on the coax connection.A word about the assembly:The assembly can be somewhat difficult for non-mechanical types. I did notice that the antenna halves were stubborn to fit the landings for them and have proper alignment to allow screws to pass through the holes. To remedy this I used my 3/8 tube bender to bend the ends into proper alignment with little pre-load. This allowed me to get the screws in relatively easy. The instructions do not show where to install the rubber o-rings. These are intended to go under the nuts.I am satisfied with the construction for the price and happy with its performance.Those who have damaged or destroyed theirs while assembling, failed to relieve stress, exercise caution, or were reckless in their approach. 4Very satisfied and would recommend it.I have this hooked up to old 1974 Kenwood receiver in my garage. Before I got this antenna I tried a di-pole, a loop and a piece of wire. My signal was still very weak as seen by a signal strength meter in my receiver. I am only 40-50 miles from the two radio stations that I listen to. I mounted new Steller Labs antenna this to the ceiling in my garage with 15 feet of wire and the signal is now very strong. Very satisfied and would recommend it.5
