Grundig S350DL needs a am aerial to bring in the
1. run 18 gauge wire (buy in auto parts shelf), after stripping plastic (about 1/2 inch) away from wire inside. Clip where RED clip is, on back of radio. Need about 6 to 10 feet. Run wire in upwards direction from radio. At other end of wire, strip enough to make small loop back onto itself. (terminates the wire.) Run another length of same wire from BLACK clip on back of radio, strung along floor of room - 6 feet, maybe. Yes, hide it if it does not please somebody's eyes. Now, you have an AM external antenna.
2. Go to E-Bay, "slinkyantennas". They have a very good-looking, and performs for DX'ing antenna. Use same wire from RED clip, stripped, for alligator clip from 'slinky' shop's antenna to grab hold.
--With s350dl (NPR version-before major t-storm did kaputs, learned good lesson ... always use batteries, not A/C), and slinky pvc-style antenna with ground wire, was able from Central Louisiana, to pick up KOA from Denver!
