I bought one of the ubiquitous boom boxes for my shop and I'm disappointed in the performance of the radio.  CD player is just fine, but I cannot receive the same number of radio stations as I can in the house or in my PU.

Does anyone know of a replacement antenna or whatever I can use to increase its ability to tune in stations?  The other option is to take it with me the next time I go to the range and sight in my 30/30.

Does it currently have an antenna wire that's accessible? A lot of them are built into the power cord and not accessible.
If it's accessible then just extend its length.

Brand and model# of said box?
If you can get to the antenna leads, one of those 300 ohm T-shaped dipole antennas will work wonders.

I have a cannon that would bring an even more spectacular demise to it, but Kentucky is too far to drive. Big Grin

I could mail it to you and then you could post video.

I'll have to open it up to see what I can access.
