Additionally, many of the stations that had no bars showing on the signal strength meter improved to have two or even three bars show with the "tuned" light illuminating for each one. Given how weak a lot of the signals are at my location, I have to admit I am impressed by how well the antenna performs.

Since I use the Digiwave model, I can't exactly say if it would perform the same as Antennas Direct's FM360 model, but given that the construction appears to be identical I'd say it might be worth a try especially at a price like that.

Hope this helps.
Also, here's a Wikipedia article that explains these circular antennas:
