Our take on the Terk "Q"
Power up your radio reception! With two selectable FM modes (wideband and narrowband) Terk's Q lets you lock in on frequencies perfectly! For strong stations, use its wideband mode to enhance reception of all broadcasts in a 360-degree range. For weak stations, the narrowband mode employs Terk's "Pin-Dot
Pre-Tuning" circuitry to zero in on a precise frequency: Once you've matched the frequency, simply adjust its low-noise amplifier (-20 to +44 dB gain) for optimum signal strength.
The Q's AM wing swings back 90 degrees to prevent any interference between the separate AM and FM antenna elements. FM gain is achieved through active amplification. AM gain, fixed at +15 dB, is achieved through a passive (non-amplified) antenna element.

AM Gain: The Terk Q (AF-1) antenna provides a +15dB gain for
AM, however, the signal is not boosted or amplified.
FM Gain: The antenna's gain control for FM signals can be
adjusted from -20dB to +44dB. The further away from the radio signal, the more
you should increase the gain. If you are close to a radio signal, you should
decrease the gain to reduce distortion.
Tuning Modes: The antenna has two tuning modes:
- Wide Band: Wide band tuning works best in most situations. The 8
LEDs on the font panel will turn from green to red as the gain is increased.
The gain should be set to where there is the least amount of noise.
- Narrow Band: For tuning to a specific station, you should switch
to Narrow Band tuning with its Pin-Dot Pre-Tuning feature. The gain control and the LEDs will guide you to find
the best signal possible. The left-most LEDs represent the lower end of the
dial (88 MHz), while the LEDs on the right represent the upper end of the
dial (108 MHz).
