Which tuner to get and getting the most from it. Thank God, for the radio!

RE: Weak reception

Do I read this right? 75ohm downlink to a 300ohm INPUT?

Terrible impedance mis-match.

At least get a Balun to fix the impedance issue.

I made a 300ohm 'twinlead' antenna which is on a 'rotor' in the ceiling of my garage. AT THE Antenna is a balun. Down to the RADIO is 75ohm which screws into the antenna input.
Good results for a table radio (Tivoli #1) even though I live in a depression (the house, not ME) which is 40+ miles NORTH of SanDiego and thus well South of Orange county as well as impossibly far from LA. Yet, I do get some of the Mt Wilson FM feeds.
Too much is never enough
