Your GME and it's antennas aren't going to help at all.
There are 4 ways to get better reception on AM
1)Get a better radio
with better reception sensitivity. As the previous poster says your OE radio
is probably not up to what you need. A good option is a Sony high end portable. ( 7600 etc) or replace the radio
in the car with one that is sensitive.
2)reduce noise. Are you getting engine noise etc? Use some supressors. This is a bit of a black art and trail and eorr to some extent.
3)Better and bigger antenna. The standard antenna is probably 1.2m tall. When you are stationary clip an few additional meters ( 3 - 4) to it.
4)Listen at night...
I think professional installers ( especially country ones can help you). Don;t let anyone sell you a digital radio
. It wont help in remote areas.
