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

RE: 1/4 wavelength automotive whip antenna...further

"Btw, when you were closer to Seattle, what sort of antenna did you find worked best?"

I was living in Lynnwood for 16-1/2 years. Lots of available FM stations to tune in. In my area multipath seemed the biggest problem. And atmospherics played into it. Some days the dipole I had up high on the south wall, above the sliding door, was cleanest. Other days, the Parsec amplified antenna, that I had on the fireplace mantle would bring them in cleaner. The Parsec could be aimed and that seemed to have an affect. At one time I used an outdoor omni directional antenna (2 folded dipoles stacked one over the other in 90-degree config) leaning up against the wall of the listening room, and there were times when that tuned in the cleanest.

As always seems to be the case, a roof mounted antenna was not an option.

With all of the above said, I had cleaner sounding reception in the Seattle area.
