Making Connections with the Terk HDR-I Powered Indoor Antenna
Helpful Information About your HDR-I:
Remember that no antenna can receive a radio signal that isn't there. When a usable radio signal is present, your HDR-I will improve AM and FM reception.
Note: Generally, a practical limit to radio reception is 40-50 miles from the broadcast transmitter depending on the terrain.
Gain Control Knob
Located on the back of the HDR-I is the gain control knob. The gain control is the mechanism that either increases or decreases the antenna's amplifier intensity. The further away you are from the radio signal, the more you increase the gain. If you are very close to the radio signal, signal saturation occurs. Lowering the gain will decrease the amount of distortion.
Radio tuners and receivers can have different connections for your new HDR-I antenna. Please find the connection that best matches your tuner or receiver and follow the listed instructions.
Note: When plugged into an electrical outlet, your TERK antenna will remain "ON". This is not a problem because the AC adapter uses very little power. To turn "OFF" the power supply, it must be plugged into a switched outlet. Some late model radio tuners and receivers come with a switched outlet located on the back. It is safe to use this outlet for the TERK power supply.
