Hi James. Do you know if anyone (maybe you) makes a compact FM antenna that does not require something like headphone wires to act as the antenna? I know obtainig a reasonable efficieny in a small form factor at 88-108 MHz is tough (or impossible). Any thoughts?

Hi Jess
About 20 years ago I bought from a mail order catalogue a low profile compact receive antenna that claimed to cover VHF FM and Band IV/V TV.
I will examine the case to see if there is a clue to the manufacturer. I bought 4 at the time, and I'm still using them as indoor antennas because my apartment has no means of installing an outdoor antenna for FM.
The size is about the same as a pack of 20 ciggies (am I allowed to be non-PC here?) or a lady's powder compact (ditto). It is certainly effective, but to examine it by reverse engineering, I would have to destroy it using a hacksaw. I think it must use some kind of VHF/UHF ferrite, with a coil would over it of a few turns.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
