I got the A/C fixed in my old beater, but thanks to the wonders of modern technology I have my old-ass Aiwa deck in there, still cranking out tunes via my iPod and one of those Griffin iPod-radio transmitter doohickeys. Good times, right?
…Not exactly. I like to occasionally listen to talk radio on AM, especially during the commute. But the reception in my car is pants. I don’t have an antenna that works, thanks to a drunken buddy who broke the power antenna back in the day. The rubber substitute I used wasn’t much better than nothing. So now there’s no antenna at all!
But I have an 1/8" plug that I can play another radio on… but even using my Radio Shack radio, it’s still shit reception. The station I’m trying to tune in is in the city!
So does anybody have a suggestion for a small, hopefully inexpensive radio that gets good reception on the AM band without the need for a dorky antenna attachment that makes it impossible to drive safely?
