About the Terk AM Advantage
Terk's Pin-Dot Pre-Tuning system lets you tune out noise and interference with a twist of the tuning dial on the top of the base. By tuning the antenna to the same frequency as the receiver, you can fine-tune reception for each station and experience greater clarity than ever before.
The AM Advantage is a total AM solution; it works best when connected to your receiver's AM antenna input, but wireless operation is also possible simply by placing the AM Advantage near the radio and tuning it until reception is clearer. This method should be used with clock radios, boomboxes, and other units which lack an antenna input.

More details on the Terk AM Advantage
Passive Antenna: The antenna is a passive, AM only antenna, which is shaped like an open hoop.
Improved Performance: Typically, this antenna provides better results than the AM loop antennas included with most tuners and receivers. It won't work as well as a properly installed and grounded exterior AM antenna, but it is a good alternative when you do not want to, or can't, install an external AM antenna.
Adjustable Tuning: There's a tuning dial on the top of the base which allows you to tune the antenna from 535KHz to 1700KHz (the AM frequency range). By tuning the antenna to the same frequency as the receiver you can adjust reception for each station.
Output: There is a mono mini-jack output on the rear of the base which is used with the supplied cord to connect the antenna to the receiver. The cord terminates in two bare wires (one of which is the ground), which need to be inserted into your tuner's AM antenna input. Either of the two ends can be used as a ground.
Wireless operation: Although the antenna works best when connected to an AM antenna input, it will also function simply by placing the unit near the radio and tuning the antenna until reception is clearer. This allows the antenna to be used with clock radios, boom boxes and other units which do not have antenna inputs. The antenna should be tried on all four sides of the unit to see where it will work best.
