      Actually works better without power

      I decided to get this so that I could remove that big ugly mast antenna from my truck. I have a radio capable of AM, FM, and the digital FM many stations are now broadcasting in. The first thing I did was hook it up to test it out, and without the power connected I got good reception from my FM station. After a few seconds of the radio being turned on it jumped from their analog to their digital broadcast and remained connected. AM, on the other hand, had very poor quality. I then connected the power and tried again and this time FM was filled with static and did not jump to HD, but the AM signal improved. I then disconnected and reconnected to power while the radio was on and the behavior continued. I am confident the device was receiving power because it's little led would light up when connected. It's going back to the store. How can it be worse when powered? That makes no sense whatsoever! Due to the nature of modern tech it's hard to say if this is just a bad design or yet another defective tech product that found is way to sale since tech is notoriously shoddy in quality anymore. I'm returning it as soon as I complete this review.

      This antenna surprisingly picks up a lot of stations with clarity of sound. I used it to replace the long antenna on my car which was malfunctioning. This antenna is located inside my car, along the right side edge of the windshield. But for the tiny red indicator light, you could hardly tell that it is there. So far, I only know of one station that doest have a good reception till I drive to within 10 miles of its location. Otherwise, I would give it a 5.

      Did not work from day 1, moved it all around but still no good reception. went to best buy to set up appt to get it fixed , the person told me he was setting up app for monday. sunday I get a message I missed my appt. Plugged in my regular vehicle antenna and it worked a+. Have sold the vehicle before I could get fixed or a refund. Reception great with standard antenna I plugged into the radio.

      We had the radio antenna adapter installed when we purchased a new car radio. We were having trouble picking up AM stations, especially at night. The antenna has improved reception immensely. It still gets staticy after sunset, but that's a problem with the particular station we listen to and outdated WWII regulations.

      My major purpose in getting the Sony receiver and new antenna was to get better reception from Seattle, 89 miles to our south. The result? Meixed. In some areas here the sound is better than my old antenna but in still others...equal at best. So it was only la net gain.

      My radio no longer got stations that were any distance away. Your sales and installation folks showed me my options and had this antenna installed a couple of hours after I left the car with them, although they weren't going to be able to do it that day. Thank you! Great service!

      did not meet expectations. I got his to replace a broken mast. I have about 50% of the stations I had before and then they are still come and go of what I do get. You would expect an amplified antenna to bring in more stations or at least the same stations as before.

      Installed a marine antenna that I had seen at best buy. I couldn't have made a better choice. The freedom and ability to mount this was great! I didn't have to cut holes or remove the dash in order to mount it and the length of the assembly was also a factor! Receptions is excellent.
