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!

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.
