Question about Emerson Smartset Clock Radio
You will need to buy a signal amplifier antenna. One that doe not have to be connected to the Clock/Radio. It will provide the amplified signal and the radio antenna (the a/c line cord and the back of the clock/radio) will be able to pick up the signal from the amplified antenna.[http://www.radiolabs.com/products/antennas/am-antenna.php] this web link will show you one type of these antenna's. Copy the web link and paste it into the address bar in your browser. It will take you to the website. There maybe other types of these antenna's but this one had the best price. Call the store and talk to them before you buy the antenna to make sure it will work in your situation. I hope this information helps you with your antenna problems.

The wire that attaches to the line cord... remove it. now find the ground in the radio. attach a second wire to the ground. attach the ground wire to the ground screw on your power outlet from you wall or ground rod in the ground. next attach a longer wire to the other wire.
another choice would be to attach the ground wire to a coax cable at the shield and the other wire at the center of the coax. run the coax cable to a higher location, then from the shield at the other end connect a piece of wire (234/frequency in MHz) answer in feet, this is the length you need. now attach another wire from the center going the opposite direction using the same length of wire as the one you just hooked up. orient the wires so they are horizontal and 180 degrees apart. A good stick or something straight to hold the wires and tape them on. Any size wire will work. now you have just made a directional antenna. Rotate it until the signal is better. If it is but still needs help then add the amplifier. add it inbetween the antenna you just made and the radio. The antenna will hook to the input of the amplifier and the output of the amplifer will go to the two wires on the radio. ground to the ground and output to the wire that originally was connected to the line cord. Phew!

FM reception is weak
What to do
• Extend the power cord as much as possible. The FM antenna is in the power cord.
• Move the power cord to adjust the FM antenna
• If you still have problems with FM reception, you may need an external antenna.
* Call Bose®Customer Service to request one.
The external antenna on your radio is a coax (round) design It needs an adaptor and an antenna which are cheap.
Easy to make, radio shack "F" connector 90 degrees or straight, to 300 ohm wire connections. Attatch a 300 ohm flat ribbon antenna cable to those two screws and plug into radio and see how your reception is. You will need to position the antenna wires to get best reception. I have hid them in back of paintings and so on.
Cheapest solution next to putting an extension cord on radio power cord.

Using the tuner
Listening to the radio
The following steps show you how to tune in to FM and
AM radio broadcasts using the automatic (search) and
manual (step) tuning functions. If you already know the
frequency of the station you want, see Tuning directly to a
station below. Once you are tuned to a station you can
memorize the frequency for recall later-see Saving
station presets below for more on how to do this.
1 Press the FM/AM button to select the tuner.
2 Use the FM/AM button to change the band (FM or
AM), if necessary.
Each press switches the band between FM and AM.
3 Tune to a station.
There are three ways to do this:
To search for stations in the currently selected band,
press and hold TUNE ?©/?? for about a second. The
receiver will start searching for the next station,
stopping when it has found one. Repeat to search for
To change the frequency one step at a time, press
High speed tuning
Press and hold TUNE ?©/?? for high speed tuning.
Release the button at the frequency you want.
Improving FM stereo sound
If the TUNED or STEREO indicators don't light when
tuning to an FM station because the signal is weak, press
the MPX button to switch the receiver into mono
reception mode. This should improve the sound quality
and allow you to enjoy the broadcast.
Using Neural THX
This feature uses Neural Surround™, THX® technology to
achieve optimal surround sound from FM radio.
• While listening to FM radio, press AUTO/DIRECT for
Neural THX listening.
