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

RE: vertical antenna

Steve, I actually use a vertical antenna for FM. It is a single rod telescoping type like an auto antenna. It was home made by a buddy many years ago, I think the only specialized part is a Balun to allow 75 ohm cable for connection. It includes a dummy reflector rod at the opposite end of the base. Someone else who knows more about antennas can explain that. With it I can receive a stereo signal (most days) from the classical station in LA, albeit over ocean not mountains from San Diego, at least 100 miles away.
