I used to comedy mine to a water pipe or the tv aeriel.

I meant comedy, stupid phone keypad......

Damn damn damn Dan I mean connect..... Arrrrrrrrggggghhhhh!!!!!!

its this phone keypad, it only works with fingers not a little stylus, I've got big sausage fingers though.....
Not like the little china man that made it.

Good point but I tend to also listen to international broadcasts to ensure I'm not getting the PC properganda from the govt, and most international stations dont broadcast in digital.

Band and propagation conditions change - one day a friend in Canada sounds like he's in the same room with me, 24 hours later I can barely hear him. With a commercial radio, do whatever works... aluminum foil works well on our weather radio.
If at first you don't secede, try, try again!

Radios are funny things.Almost anything can be used as an antenna. Try a piece of wire from a baloon. Works good but for your house an antenna on the roof would probably be the best you can do.

This post has taken me back to my first crystal set, I connected mine to the TV areal, happy diode days.
To take a look back in times past, its easy to see future direction you need to be.

Yes.
Find a resilient place and way to live, then sit back and watch a momentous period in history unfold.
