Simple wire can make a great antenna, and it's relatively inexpensive. I've had the best shortwave and AM reception thus far using a long loop (actually a rectangle) of copper wire as an antenna (but folks shouldn't try a loop with some radios designed for use with powered antennas without inserting an appropriate capacitor in series). If you do try wire, you would want to try to make the loop shape as large as possible, and connect the ends of the wire to your radio's antenna connectors.

You can also take any metal slinky and solder a single alligator clip to each end of the spring coil after removing the small metal clasp at the end of the coil of wire. This gives you a collapsible wire antenna that you can clip to a drape, or any hanging item using the clamp. And the other end can easily clamp to your telescopic antenna with out scaring or damage.
It works horizontally or vertically as an antenna. And you can add an additional slinky rig to make it even longer.

You can suspend it by hanging it off a balcony, clipped to a tree limb, a table umbrella, or with a fishing pole inside as a vertical antenna support.
Or along a simple string or cord as a horizontal antenna support.The original slinky box still makes a handy carrying case for your travel antenna to fit into as you travel.

I just purchased the G6 Aviator. The FM band works well, but none of the AM or shortwave stations get reception. I have tried the antenna up and down, indoors and outdoors with no success.


It sounds like the whole am band is not working which includes the shortwave bands, there is no remedy to correct this and is clearly a manufacture defect. The best solution is return the radio because there is nothing more that can be done in it's present condition.

We have a Grundig S350DL radio that was my father's. There is no manual. FM works great. Can't get AM. Radio turns off on its own!! Any suggestions?


Hello,
The problem you are having may be due to some configuration settings (such as a timer). Not dtecting the AM signal, may be due to interference from power lines. To improve AM reception (if there is something to improve) one should rotate the radio to orient the internal ferrite antenna. Using the radio close to a window can improve reception.
To enable you to diagnose the problems that may be due to some configuration setting I give you the link to the radio's manual.

Hope it helps.

Can't pick up any stations


Some Grundig models have a history of poor front end design where just a bit of static electricity will wipe out tuning. Serious flaw.
