Maybe one of you can help , Last week I got a 1938 Westinghouse 566 radio , When I bought it the sales guy said he did not know if it worked, The person who had owned it never returned and that was at least 20 years ago , So we took her to his test bench and he removed the back , Slowly he brought the voltage up , the tubes came to life and wonder of all she started to play and very weird it was playing the music from that tyme , Well I just had to have her . He said he did not want me to take it now that he wanted to test it for a while to make sure it does not burn my dig down and put a new power cable on it as the original was in a dangerouse condition ,Rubber and bakeolite does not last this long. We agreed on a price and based on the relitive knowlege of these I felt I was getting a deal. Fast forward I get a call from Ring Audio your machine is ready Great Ill be down now , Driving along Queen St I see a parking spot right in front of the store put my flashers on go in and he has the radio on the bench turns her on a few min the tubes warm and she sounds just fine , He tells me I may have to add some sort of antenna as this was not the best but play with it and enjoy , I walk out to find a parking fool drawing up a ticket for me Rather than calling him some rude names which he proly deserves I just smiled and put my 566 on the pass seat strapped her in and drove off to old radio land . Now here is the Q What type of extra Am antenna can I rig into this ? She does pull in a few stations but very weak and if I move it she will loose them Any ideas ?
