Our Best-Selling, Best-Sounding Indoor Antenna! 

A Stereophile Recommended Component! The Fanfare FM-2G offers the perfect solution to most urban and fringe FM reception problems. It’s light, compact and easy to install. With its slim 56” antenna, the FM-2G can be tucked away in an attic or mounted on a wall with its supplied brackets while providing excellent FM reception up to 50 miles.

How the Fanfare FM-2GC accomplishes this is through its unique 1/2 wave design. Basically, the FM-2GC is an end-fed dipole which by definition has 0dB gain. But, because the antenna's receptive capabilities have been focused on the horizontal plane, as opposed to all directions, the antenna is able to concentrate more on signals arriving at its sides. This concentration translates into more signal for your FM tuner which ultimately results in a cleaner, quieter, more reliable audio output.

Particularly important to urban reception situations is the ability of an antenna to deal with multipathed (reflected from other surfaces) signals. The FM-2GC is vertically polarized thereby rendering it less susceptible to the more common, horizontally-polarized, multipath interference.

The FM2GC concentrates its considerable energy on the midband of 90MHz so that all College Band frequencies are given the same reception power as if they were at the middle of the FM band. However, its versatility as an 'all-band' antenna is still available for local FM stations up to the top of the band.

In order to ensure its physical reliability, the Fanfare FM-2GC is built to commercial standards. Its stainless steel encased loading coil is hermetically sealed to ensure that it will maintain its tuned accuracy. The whip receptacle is plated in nickel to provide long-lasting protection and conductivity. The FM-2GC's whip is manufactured of tough, PH7-7 stainless steel which is tapered to allow maximum flex strength in all temperatures and in all kinds of wind or weather. And, it is capped with a real, alloy static ball for maximum static (noise) discharge.

The Fanfare FM-2GC comes complete with 25' of RG59/U (75 W) coaxial cable and 'L' mounting bracket. Finally, while the FM-2GC performs better overall than other, similar designs, its construction and method of coupling are truly superior. First it is much lighter, offering less windage therefore rendering it less susceptible to damage in high winds. And, due to its unique method of coupling, it is capable of maintaining both tune and conductivity over a wider range of weather and climate anomalies, including salt water environments. Installation is fast and easy on any vertical surface using the stainless steel 'L' bracket included. While placement is important for best reception, instructions included with the FM-2GC spell out in clear, uncomplicated terms how to install the unit effectively.
