"If you're not pleased with the FM reception you're getting, hunt up the Godar and give it a try. I think you'll find it a very $ensible antenna choice." -- Thom Moon, $ensible Sound, No. 98, Jan/Feb 2004.
We've tried a lot of different indoor FM antennas in our offices. Most don't work worth a darn. Trouble is, our building has a metal skin over a steel girder frame which destroys an FM antenna's performance. Here's an easy to install, compact FM antenna that really works! Introducing the remarkable Godar Electronics FM-1A "Super Antenna." The FM-1A is compact - only 17" wide, 9.5" deep, and 1" thick. Placement is easy - you can put the FM-1A on top or even underneath your FM tuner! For better reception, place the FM-1A near the window.
Inside the durable high-impact ABS plastic case is a 14-element stainless steel antenna array. The antenna is omni-directional for local stations and directional for distant stations - up to 100 miles away! And the FM-1A is passive, which means properly tuned stations come in clearly without hiss. The FM-1A connects to your tuner via a supplied 75-ohm coaxial cable.
"I like seeing what unusual stations I can pick up from out of the ether. So the Godar is not going back to the dealer; it is my new [FM antenna] of choice. If you're not pleased with the FM reception you're getting, hunt up the Godar and give it a try. I think you'll find it a very $ensible antenna choice."-- Thom Moon, $ensible Sound, No. 98, Jan/Feb 2004

|Godar FM Antenna|
Using the Godar on the second floor of our suburban home Im able to enjoy my favorite FM stations. They come in clear and strong with the Godar. Orientation is not an issue. The cable supplied is surprisingly flexible. My only complaint at all is the typically cheesy coax connectors. They are not very durable.

Got this antenna and it rattled pretty bad. Should have sent it back right away. Kinda worked so I kept it. Now no one wants to deal with it. Go to radio shack.

Outstanding performance. Own a Mcintosh Mr71 tuner considered the best in the world Can receive 2 stations clearly that were not possible before. Aim the antenna in the stations direction and clears up the noise.Like the directional performance this antenna delivers .Very durable product all around.Purchased a second antenna for my surround receiver.
