About the Terk Tower
The Terk Tower antenna is the affordable and easy way to improve both short and long-range radio reception. The Tower serves as two antennas in one. Mounted vertically, it becomes an omnidirectional antenna for great reception from all directions. Place it flat, and the Tower becomes a directional antenna that can be positioned to zero in on weak or distant stations.
Performance of the Tower is enhanced by its unique AirCoil technology that electrically isolates the AM and FM elements from each other for increased selectivity with dramatically reduced static and noise.
The antenna comes with everything necessary for installation, including a non-skid, scratch-proof pedestal, and a universal slip-on connector and matching adapters so you can use the Tower with almost every receiver, tuner or compact music system.
The Terk Tower uses active amplification to boost FM signals (+10 dB minimum). AM gain, fixed at +15 dB, is achieved through a passive (non-amplified) antenna element.

More details on the Terk Tower
Overview: The Terk AM/FM Tower is a high-performance antenna that is ideal for anyone who wants superior short and long-range radio reception. The Tower is designed to be an omnidirectional or directional antenna. When placed vertically, it equally receives signals from all different directions. When placed flat, the antenna becomes directional and can be pointed at hard-to-get stations for better reception.
Built-in Amplifier: The Tower's built-in amplifier strengthens weak and distant signals giving you greater control over the quality of your reception. The Tower uses active amplification to boost FM signals (+10 dB minimum). AM gain, fixed at +15 dB, is achieved through a passive (non-amplified) antenna element.
Air Coil Technology: The Air Coil technology isolates the AM and FM elements from each other, for increased radio reception and minimized static and noise.
Installation: The antenna comes with everything necessary for installation, including a non-skid, scratch-proof pedestal, and a universal slip-on connector and matching adapter so you can use the Tower with almost every receiver, tuner or compact music system.
