    Live 50 miles from the city and the FM reception is terrible on my Harmon Kardon Receiver. Car stereo reception is great. Short of putting a giant antenna on my building, what can I do to improve my FM reception? Can't get any real answers from anyone in the business.

    What type of antenna are you using now?

    Right now, I'm using the small plastic loop one that came with the thing. I tried a powered indoor one but it didn't help at all. I would just go out and buy a new receiver but the friggin salesmen don't know crap about it.

    oddly enough, the older the reciever the better luck youll have with pulling in FM. I have one from the 70s, pimped out with wood and shit, pulls in the rock stations from 70 miles away with an old set of rabbit ears. I tried hooking my new system up to the same antenna and it doesnt do shit. :dunno:

    I bought an old Kenwood tuner from the early 70s. Found a website that rates old tuners and found one on Ebay cheap ftw
