Really stupid question about my boombox

Recommended Posts

Sorry, I don't know who else to ask. http://www.musicplayer.com/ubb/wink.gif


I play my radio when I'm computing and there is one station I like that has a weak signal, generating a lot of static. It only has the basic tube extension antennae. If I reach up and grab that antennae, the static stops. Is that because I'm grounded? What I really want to know is if there is an easy solution. Easiest being something I could do from stuff here at the house. Second being something I could get at Radio Shack or whatever. Thanks.

When you grab the antenna, you have become physically connected to the antenna and act as an extension of that antenna. If you want better reception, you can either get a larger antenna, continue to hold the antenna , try experimenting with the placement of your radio, or experiment by attach things like foil or extra wire to the antenna.
