The ST-2 Vertical Omnidirectional FM Antenna

fm antenna - ST2  

FM Antenna

This FM Antenna receives distant FM stations from all directions!

A more powerful FM Antenna than any single element dipole antenna, the ST-2 vertical is probably one of the best things ever to happen to FM listeners in urban and fringe reception areas alike.

Concentrating its reception "focus" only on the horizontal plane, the ST-2 FM Antenna is capable of getting more signal to your FM tuner with less "flutter" and "fading."

The ST-2 FM Antenna is also less susceptible to "multipath interference," due to its unique vertical polarization. Right from its PH17-7 stainless steel whip through the gold-plated coil coupling to the stainless-steel encased, precision-wound loading coil, the ST-2 is built tough. Yet it passes the most fragile of FM signals to your FM tuner's circuitry with the kind of strength sometimes found only with much larger, multi-element fm antennas.

Being a 1/2 wave design and not requiring a "ground plane" or counterpoise," it is equally at home mounted on a mast, a balcony, hanging in the window or from a tree. The ST-2 FM Antenna offers greatly enhanced FM tuning performance,and signal strength.

The ST-2 FM Antenna comes to you ready to install. It is 54 inches in length, and furnished with a stainless steel "L" mounting bracket for ease of installation both in and outdoors.

The SR-100 Silver Ribbon Tunable FM Antenna

fm antennas - SR-100

A high-efficiency indoor antenna that is ...

  • Continuously tunable across the FM dial to maximize reception,

  • Rotatable for best station orientation.

  • Designed to complement just about any FM system arrangement.

  • Receives local HDTV signal with ease due to its UHF design.

  • Directionality helps in solving problems due to multi path interference

The Silver Ribbon FM antennas are both unique and attractive. The functional, bright-metal elements of this fm antenna may be adjusted by simply pulling upward on the center adjustment knob. This provides a precisely-tuned element at the proper impedance for each receivable FM or UHF HDTV signal on the band, thereby maximizing reception.

The Silver Ribbon FM antennas are easily rotated in position to provide the best orientation for maximum signal pickup from the tuned FM or HDTV station.

Indoor FM reception presents its own unique "multi path" problems due to metal used in building construction. Similarly, furniture and even people within the room can affect FM reception. The Silver Ribbon FM antennas help avoid that problem by allowing the user to "focus" the fm antenna on either the main or a strong, reflected signal.

Up to now, indoor fm reception has been left to the wonders of costly "box" and "wing" type fm antennas. Now there is an effective alternative -- one that can provide maximum fm reception at a very reasonable cost. If an indoor FM or HDTV antenna is a must, so is the Silver Ribbon FM antenna.

FM Antennas - FAQ

I live in an apartment building. What is the best FM antenna for me to use?

The best options for you would be either the SR-100 ribbon FM antenna or the ST-2 FM antenna.






I am surrounded by mountains. Which antenna will give me the best FM reception?

Without a directional antenna, Multi-path will be a problem. A simple test will help you. As your car sits in your driveway, see if you can dial your car's stereo in to the station you wish to receive in your home. If your station comes in clearly, then you can be assured that a roof antenna and rotor will work for you in your home. The ST-2 FM antenna may also work for you by placing it on its side, making it a directional antenna.






Can the ST-2 FM Antenna be placed in any direction, or is it only effective pointing in an upward direction?


The ST-2 FM Antenna can be placed in any direction. It is best to try it in different positions for maximum performance.






What are the maximum distances the your FM antenna will pull stations in from?






How do Magnum FM Antennas compare with others?

Any indoor FM antenna is sensitive to positioning. The advantage of the SR-100 is that it can be rotated to maximize reception. The ST-2 will outperform any indoor antenna, but works best when placed outdoors. The key to any antenna is the one that works best in your situation. This often requires a little experimentation with a few antennas.






Is RG59 the only cable for the ST-2? If not what else will work effectively?

RG59 is what we include with the ST-2. RG6 also is effective, because it has lower losses and better shielding. It is recommended to be used in runs longer than 25 feet.






Can I attach one length of cable to another via an adapter? Will this detract from the effectiveness of the antenna?

We do not recommend this method due to the Losses involved when using an adapter. If you choose this method, you must make certain that you are using exactly the same type of cable for both pieces. The effectiveness of the antenna will be affected by this, as there is approx. 2db of loss going through the connector.






Is it true that the longer the cable, the more it detracts from the reception?

Yes, most cable has approx 3-4 db loss per 100ft.






What exactly does the FM 205 Signal Sleuth do?

The 205 does three things:

  1. the 205 can boost the signal 30db.

  2. the 205 can reduce the signal 30db.

  3. the 205 adds 3 stages of front end RF filtration, which cleans up and isolates the signal that you are listening to.

The key to the 205 is that it only manipulates the frequency that it is set to.






Can I actually over-compensate with any of the tuners by trying too hard to get good FM reception?

Yes. You can in fact get too much signal, which will overload the front end of the tuner, thereby producing poor sound quality. Magnum tuners, with our multiple stage front end, are not susceptible to front end overload.






Can the MD-6 FM Antenna or MD-10 FM Antenna be used effectively with the MD-205 Signal Sleuth?

Yes, it is an excellent combination.






Can the ST-2 be used in a car/vehicle?

Yes, the ST-2 can be used this way.






Can the ST-2 be used in marine applications?

Yes the ST-2 can be used this way.






Will the ST-2 perform better if I were to mount it to a mast on the roof?

Yes. The higher that you are able to mount the antenna, the better the performance.






Can any of your antennas be used for AM? If so, which one(s)?

Yes. The ST-2 can be used for AM.






What does DB mean?

db is a measurement of available power. Another measurement is micro-volts.






What does Gain mean?

Gain refers to the amount of power available.






Can I use my incoming cable system as the antenna for my tuner?

Yes, however you will not be able to hear the full capability of our tuners because of the compression of the cable system.

FM Antenna Review

The whip-like device can be installed on the wall or the ceiling. It can be used in a vertical or horizontal position, where multipath interference is particularly annoying. In the horizontal position, the ST-2 becomes directional, or more precisely bi-directional, when it is placed at right angles to the transmitter site. In an upright, vertical position, the reception may not be as good, but the choice of stations increases ... Those of you who have been connected to cable are well advised to try this antenna which, when in the proper position, allows the tuner to deliver a much cleaner signal.
