My reception is not good for news talk. I can get the local FOX station but the station I want to listen to is in San Francisco. About 3 hours from me, by car. Reception in the car is good and I could get them in clearly when I lived in a stand alone house. I have researched online the C. Crane radios. They are not cheap. However I can find no definitive answer if they work better in an apartment and I have tried searching several times and looked at a number of we pages. Anyone know anything about these? Or the best radio for AM within an apartment with I guess a lot of interference. Thanks in advance.
