Our take on the Terk FM Pro (FM-50)
The FM Pro is Terk's most ambitious FM-only antenna yet. It is a long-range amplified antenna designed for demanding FM listeners. Mounted indoors
or outdoors in an unobstructed location, the FM Pro combines remarkable reception and installation ease.
The FM Pro can be mounted indoors or outdoors, on a rooftop or the
side of your house, upstairs in the attic, or on the wall above your audio components it's as versatile as it is powerful. (The sleek, weatherproof housing is even paintable.)
The amplifier is housed inside the antenna and is powered via an included power injector that sends voltage directly through the coaxial cable and into the antenna's amplifier.
For optimum performance, the FM Pro should be mounted horizontally with the front facing the general direction of the broadcast signal.
