Works Great for me.
This review is from: WINEGARD Omnidirectional FM Antenna
Pros: Contrary to the instructions, I installed this antenna in the attic over my garage, facing my favorite FM station. There is a huge mountain range in between me and said FM station, yet the signal comes in perfectly with this antenna. I have this antenna hooked to a Yamaha R-S201 stereo receiver in the garage below and my station has never once dropped off. There is no signal strength meter on the stereo but from the sound coming out of the speakers, the signal is always strong and in stereo (it would go to mono if the signal was weak).
Cons: I can't blame the manufacture, but this thing has a pretty good span and was a tight fit in my attic (but it did fit, barely). They do recommend placing the antenna on a pole over your roof top, so this may mean nothing unless you're planning on doing the same kind of installation I did. Manufacture's specs say this is 67 inches wide, which I suspect is the same for the height of the 2nd element (which is where I almost had issues fitting it into the attic). My attic is taller than 67" inside, I just had an ultra convenient location for mounting this that was a little on the high side for the height of this antenna.
Other Thoughts: Didn't seem expensive to me, in fact I thought it was a great buy, and it works great in my situation. Requires no power to function but you will need some 75 ohm coax cable to run to whatever you're hooking this up to. You can use flat 300 ohm cable but don't expect the same great results I got.
