I wonder if you could use a headphone splitter jack from radio shack, and
then take a piece of long wire on an eighth inch plug for the jack the
headphones are not using, and make the long wire an antenna.

Hey gang,

Anyone have any ideas on how to improve the FM reception on an FMR unit? I
don't know a whole heckuva lot about how antennas work and how the
receiver works in order to make improvements, besides moving the thing to
a different spot on my desk.

Or am I just stuck with the crappy reception that I get?
