I just purchased a Sherwood RX-4109 AM/FM stereo receiver for dx chasing so after connecting the unit to a 102" whip fed by LMR-200 coax with a PL259 connector & spade lugs for AM & a j-pole tuned to 155 MHz fed by RG-8X with a PL259 connectors & a SO239/Push on F connector for FM, result worse reception than the stock AM external/indoor coil & the stock FM 48" wire, any idea what I did wrong? The antennas were bolted & grounded to the balcony of my apartment. Anybody know of any outdoor AM & FM antennas that would work for my situation? whatever I use cannot extent beyond the balcony railing, Thanks in advance.
