Boost Radio Reception with an AM/FM Antenna

Popular marine AM/FM radio antennas include one-piece, four-foot AM/FM radio antennas for cabin top or T-top mounting. Variations include FM radio antennas and FM stereo antennas. Brands include Shakespeare, Fusion, West Marine and Dual. Look for copper elements inside and a stainless steel or chrome-plated brass ferrule. Some of these antennas can double as a VHF antenna, provided a signal splitter is installed. Low-cost solutions are short 16 inch flexible antennas and on-glass or interior antennas, which do not require complicated installation, yet are helpful in boosting radio reception.
