Yes, I got mine at Walmart for $49.99, it suppose to add something like 7db to the range. I am not technical enough to know what that means. Anyway, I can use mine in my backyard under huge trees, so I am real happy about that. Once I get the boombox, I'll be able to use it back there when we have cook-outs without having to run an antenna like I use to with my older tuners.
Another suggestion is to place your router or access point as high up as you can get it. I have mine mounted on the wall as high as I can get it. I was shocked how much this improved the reception throughout my home, compared to when I had it just sitting on my desk.
