People saying that this aerial brings no improvement over the "piece of wire" you stick into the tuner's socket clearly have no idea how to use a dipole. You don't hide it curled up behind a shelf or something. Lift the center of the top horizontal section as high as possible on a wall inside the room with the receiver, and tack it to the wall with a push-pin. Spread the top crossbar out straight and level. Dipole antennas work best in a straight T-shape. Tack the ends of the horizontal cable to the wall with push-pins. There are small holes in the ends of the antenna arms for this purpose.

I went from lousy 20dB indoors to 43-46dB which is quite an improvement and allows good stereo quality.

This product is well made and was dispatched quickly and at a good price by the seller.

Unfortunately there was no improvement at all in the FM reception to my analogue radio over the current aerial, which is a piece of wire pushed into the aerial socket! It was doubly annoying as both the ribbon aerial and the aerial socket on the radio have female coaxial connectors, so I also had to buy a male-to-male coaxial adapter.

I wanted to get FM reception on a bedroom hi-fi without having to run a cable from the distribution box in the loft so I thought I would try this ribbon aerial. Without an aerial connected (and even with a set top aerial connected) all I was getting was static. With this aerial connected I can receive good reception on as many stations as I can using the roof mounted aerial in another room.

Living in a rural area, FM reception is shocking. (Having said that, our 2G phone signal is an intermittent luxury, Freeview obtainable only by mast and booster, while DAB consists of six imperfect stations. FM reception is aspirational.)
Prior to receiving this the HiFi stereo Tuner (Kenwood) could pick up one AM channel and no FM channels. Having plugged this antenna in, the tuner now receives the same range of FM channels that the car radios can get i.e. six FM channels and four AM channels. The latter is an unexpected bonus.
Reception is not perfect- thus 4 stars instead of 5 but it is perfectly acceptable.

The item in question looks and feels like a good quality product, certainly better than anticipated at this price. Be aware that it is a "female" connector.

For those with tuners living in a semi-rural area, this may do the trick and it is an inexpensive trick at that.

I purchased this aerial to use with a Bose Wave Radio. It does its job very well. Length is more than adequate and it feels like a quality product - there is no impression of cheap materials or finish. Basically, you can fit it and forget it (especially as it blends into the background well).

A potentially useful companion product, which I needed to connect the aerial to the Wave Radio, is Pair of Coaxial Aerial Adaptors / Connectors Female-Female by Cable Mountain

What can be said apart from the fact that the product photo makes this aerial look slightly obstrusive and almost opaquely grey. Far from it. The plastic covering is translucent and once installed, the difference in reception was astonishing. Previously, even with the aerial provided with my bedisde radio/CD player, I could get no FM stations at all and only a few AM (eg: Radio 5 Live). Once this aerial was installed and attached I suddenly had crystal clear FM reception across the full band.

Wonderful. Well worth 5 stars for quality and usefulness and another 5 for price and speed of despatch by the seller - amazingly free of postage costs!

If there's a downside it's that the length of the aerial up to the 'T' means that you might have some spare at the back of your radio, but that's easily tucked out of sight. I used a total of 5 pins for attaching the aerial ... one at each end of the 'T' through the little mounting blocks provided. Another through the middle of the block which attaches the 'T' to the length of aerial which travels down to the radio (making sure to go through the middle of the plastic and not the coated wires), and then two more on the downward section to hold it tight against the wall.

I've tried to upload 3 photos showing the aerial after installation, but Amazon seems to have made it MUCH harder for buyers to upload their own images.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
