Car Stereo Antenna for In-Home use? Answered
I'm decent with working with modifying electronics, but I don't have much experience with antennae, reception, or any of that good stuff. I have plenty of experience with soldering, both wire connections, and motherboard components, so that's not a problem.. I already have my stereo wired to my computer's psu, with the pci-e power, and already have everything hooked up as of a year ago.. Aux In, Usb, and Sd all work fine, but I can't use the FM radio function, due to my lack of an antenna.. I've heard of bending a coat hanger, and shoving it in, and I don't like that shotty work, and I used to have an extension, or an adapter, (Not sure exactly what it was), but It got mediocre reception, and I gave it to a friend that I hooked up a stereo indoors for.. I can find such an adapter cheap, but I want something that will get AWESOME signal.. I know most components that require lengths of wire drop voltage, or signal over distance, such as power cables, Cat5 cables, so on and so forth.. So what can I use, modify, or make to get the reception I want, on a budget? I don't want a crappy fix.. I just want something affordable, reliable, and something that won't look too horrible. I have the stereo mounted to my desk, so not much will be exposed, depending on the length of said antenna, Thanks in advance!!
