Question about Panasonic RF-544 Radio
I live in Arlington, VA, and I use the Panasonic RF-544 (an old radio) in the basement to hear the news and weather. Sometimes reception is good, but usually it is bad, fades in and out, gives out static. When I take the RF-544 upstairs and out of the basement, reception is fine. Question: can I add some type of antenna to this radio that will cure the bad reception in-the-basement problem? (FYI: I just bought a brand new Sony ICF-38, and it brings in the channel----WTOP 103.5 FM----that I want to hear clear as a bell.) Thanks! Tom
I solved the problem, but I did not "fix" the problem. Rather than rig an antenna to the old Panasonic RF-544 radio, I put it upstairs where it has good reception. I put the new Sony ICF-38 downstairs where it brings in the stations I listen to. The advertsizing claim for the Sony ICF-38 is that it has "Good Sound and High Sensitivity." I believe it does have "high sensitivity" because even in the basement it brings in my desired stations. (I am still curious to know if I could have rigged an antenna to the old Panasonic RF-544.) RL
