If you want to get FM or HD stations and your wire antenna isnt cutting it, there is only one option. The FM6 from AntennaCraft is capable of pulling in stations up to 80 miles away. It is possible to pull stations in further but is dependant on environmental factors such as terrain and weather. Just hook it up to an FM or HD receiver and your good to go. Note: if you are using coax to connect the antenna to a receiver you will need a 300Ohm to 75Ohm converter.
Triple Driven-Directional Antenna
70" Boom Length, Maximum Width 67.75"
6 Electronic Elements
300 Ohm Output
If using coax you must purchase a 75 Ohm Transformer
This antenna has a 300 Ohm output (twin lead) output, and requires a 75 Ohm transformer if coax cable is to be used

Recent Review: Jim - Eufaula, AL - 9/8/2014 Great antenna for the money.
Great antenna for the money. Jim - Eufaula, AL - 9/8/2014 5:44:31 PM I bought this FM6 antenna with the intent of modifying it to improve its performance. I have made the modifications suggested by K6STI and have been excited with the increase in performance. Great antenna for the money.
AMAZING DJROCK - Toronto, ON - 4/17/2014 8:55:17 AM I put this on the roof, ran RG-6 coax and connected it to my FM-HD-RADIO. The reception is mind blowing!!!
Antennacraft FM6 Tincap - Brockville, kville ON - 2/9/2013 With the cuts to classical music programming on our (I am Canadian) CBCs Radio 2 network I turned to another (American) station for my classical music needs. However a more powerful station on an adjacent channel caused much grief.When it was apparent that I needed an external directional antenna the FM6 appeared to fit the bill. Light weight and easy to install I have it mounted on a 30
Buy it Fm Dxer - Central Pa, Central Pa - 2/18/2012 This is well worth the money my normal reception is 100-300.-FM DXer
Not as directional as expected Bone Bag - Angola, Indiana - 4/29/2012 I bought this antenna to get better reception of a radio station 50+ miles away of which the crossed-dipole omni did no good. I still get radio stations from 40+ miles in ALL directions. What did work for better reception was replacing my tuner with one with better selectivity and performance. I would like to upgrade to a real directional antenna. There may be other reasons for this of which I wil
Seems to be the only long range FM outdoor antenna on the market DaveI - Wellington, NV - 5/1/2014 5:59:52 PM I'm using this antenna to receive FM stations from RENO, NV. The distance is about 60 miles straight line (Mountains in between). I am using this antenna in conjunction with two inline amplifiers. A JIM M-75 20db variable inline amplifier about 20ft. from the antenna and an Archer 20db fixed FM amplifier about another 20 feet from the first amplifer (3ft. from the stereo receiver). With this antenna and the two inline amplifiers I am able to pickup multiple stations and the higher power stations clearly but still not with full quieting. This antenna is a good deal for the price but I wish someone still sold a higher gain FM outdoor antenna. It's good but for long range you'll still need amplifiers. It seems to be the only remaining long-range outdoor antenna that is not one of those amplified dipole antennas. Unfortunately for really long-range it really needs to be longer with more elements for more gain.
this antenna is very directional erskine - talladega, AL - 2/17/2014 12:49:17 PM purchased this antenna to replace my home made outside dipole which works well. the fm6 does have a slighter longer range but is extremly directional.
