    Antenna Boosters has anybody had any luck with these? Do you know of a DIY mod to help increase fm reception? What has worked or not worked, and how do you increase reception other than the aluminum foil wrapped around the mast?

    Tried this and looked about as dumb as he does. I could not handle the ridicule from my friends.

    No not yet, but I have not ruled it out. Can I borrow that one off of your car? How is your reception with it?
