I got a pretty good radio in the car but it has the stubby mini-whip antenna on top. It might be a helical wound wire so its a longer wavelength than it appears. I don't know.
I also have a Kaito KA1103 multi-band which didn't break the bank and does alright. It has an antenna input jack.
I still have an old manual tune GE7-2887A SuperRadio. It has lugs for a twin lead wire antenna. Unusually good on AM.
I'm motivated to run a wire out to the tree in the yard and see which one does better.
