    I've got the trim out on the RHS so I might try your little trick on the radio aerial - not that I've ever noticed a reception problem.

    For me it really helped with the obscure low watt stations. Regular stations were fine.
    My mind is aglow with whirling, transient nodes of thought careening through a cosmic vapor of invention.

    Ahh. They are only used on community radio here (I used to be the qualified radio tech for a local community station). I tend not to listen to them owing to the amateurish nature of them.

    However, in regional areas of the country, they are often the only source of programming apart from the govt. owned stations. At least the Govt. owned stations don't follow govt. blurb, they are usually the most vocal of groups speaking against the govt (I think they are staffed by a bunch of Left-Wingers).

    Re: Poor radio reception problem solved

    I'm having the same problem with a new radio using the factory antenna. I will give this a try today. Did you totally bypass the antenna in the glass and just go with the new wire?

    Thanks for the help.
