Not really any interference problem, just wondering if you have any tips on improving FM radio reception on my basement stereo system. One thing I tried is one of those "indoor amplified" antennas, which is basically a glorified pair of "rabbit ears" attached to a box with a ac wall adaptor, it works somewhat, but also induces sort of a hum into the system. I've also tried making what I think they call a "dipole" antenna, which worked slightly better than the stock antenna. It seems like the hot water heating pipes in my basement are acting as some sort of choke because when I hold the antenna lead above the pipes the signal gets better?
All local stations that I care to listen to come in well, I'm just trying to pull in a few more distant stations, of which come in fairly well when the weather is just right...Perhaps humidity has something to do with it? It always seems like the wetter / rainier it is, the better the reception is.
I've also read about using an standard UHF / VHF TV antenna, perhaps putting it in the attic. (No idea if it is worth trying)
Any opinions, thoughts, tips, and conversation is welcome as usual. Thanks.
