Shakespeare offers online product guide

Shakespeare's new online learning center makes it easy for boaters to better understand antennas, related accessories and basic troubleshooting, the company said.

On its website, Shakespeare features an array of videos, sound bites and other media files. Owners can learn about VHF, AIS, AM/FM, and TV antennas, plus Shakespeare's Phase III products. Accessories such as speakers and mounts are also explained.

“Shakespeare believes the best way to judge the quality and performance of its antennas is with a discerning ear,” the company said in a statement. “In the audio library, recorded transmissions on unedited, real-world sound clips are narrated by marine communications legend Gordon West. They demonstrate the strength and clarity of Shakespeare antenna signals under various conditions. This can help owners understand how things such as antenna height and gain affect signal reception.”
