Doc's FM antenna

FM transmitters for use with portable devices use the audio cable as the antenna. So add a headphone extension cord to get a bigger antenna.

If home stereo manufacturers won't sell you a good FM receiver, you could do what I did and browse yard sales and get a used Pioneer tuner for $5. I love Alameda. Or just do it in software. See Eric Blossom's Listening to FM Radio in Software, Step by Step. Bdale has also been building radios.
