Hi Kevin: Sorry to be the bearer of sad news, but any inside antenna istoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
subject to household noise. Dimmers, timers, florescent fixtures, cheep
Chinese VCRs are all possible sources of noise. If you live in a
multi-dwelling unit, then the neighbor's "stuff" can affect your reception.
If at all possible, get the antenna outside and away from the house. Also,
you'll notice an improvement if you have your antenna joined to a coaxial
cable via a 9:1 balun at the far end and then run the coax under ground up
to the side of your house where it will enter your home's listening area.
Have an 8 foot ground rod at the far end and connect the primary side of the
balun to it as well as the outer shield of the coax. Most import -
Disconnect your antenna from your radio when not in use, and ground this
connector. Hope this helps you rid yourself of some static. Good listening:

Good suggestion.I myself use a 100 foot coaxial antenna streched between a tree and an old pole and hoisted the leadin on a lower pole and ran it into the arial on my Sangean radio.73's.
