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

depends where you live.

here in Australia our public broadcaster still uses AM for its range.

On one national program Radio National, the transmitted bandwidth is out past 10Khz, and they do use the NRSCA curve as well. And I can mimic its inverse with the 'soft' button on the old beast. Apart from program promotions, no commercials!

I used to have a coil and varicap to tune a long random-length wire outside to the neighbour's chimney, via two masts. I will soon buy a CCrane remotely tunable loop. Less maintenance / no climbing up masts and chimneys.

The CC Crane can, I believe feed ALL our AM stages.
