I been told the realistic brand only gets the oldies station. Waugh!
I think you're being unrealistic. ;-)
Speaking of stereo stuff.
If anyone has an old working 1970s era stereo receiver they aren't using and are willing to sell it, please let me know.
I bought a receiver in the early 1970s and used for over 30 years, but it finally quit.
I bought a 1970s era receiver at Goodwill for $5 and have been using that for a few years, but it's now failing.
I just like the look of the old receivers, with the brushed aluminum "silver" front. It's nostalgia I guess.
Regarding FM reception, I've used the antenna with the wires in a T shape, as described, and I've used rabbit ears.
Neither work as well as I'd like. I'd also be interested in another option. One that doesn't involve putting an antenna on the roof.
