Default radio signal amp?

my 93 sse has poor radio reception. It was poor when I bought it, and after I installed the fm cd changer, it got a bit better, but is sitll horrible. Is there any way, (free is always good, college student = poor) to get better radio signals?

Check your antenna connection to the back of your stereo for possible corrosion or oxidation. Also check the connection at the antenna itself. If that doesnt work, your center wire (not the braided outer wire) may be broke somewhere. The only way to get good reception if that is the case, is to bite the bullet and replace the antenna lead.

Or you could do what the soldiers did in Vietnam and use a Slinky (true story...they would throw Slinkys in the trees to improve radio reception/transmission to and from HQ)

And that is today'* useless trivia. Unless you are McGuyver.
