Agree with prior poster, this series is almost going on the DVR queue list instead of the watch every week one.
Yeah there needs to be a better sense of plot progression, rather than people going in circles -- though real life is probably like that.
Lost dropped all these hints about progressing to finally solving the mystery of the island but of course, in the end disappointed. Meanwhile, they would have these arcs like the Dharma Initiative and The Others which ultimately ended nowhere.
Maybe the radio signal is going to be along this vein, a hint towards the start of some resolution of this story. Or maybe they find another group like the Governor or the guys that Rick had to gun down at that bar, i.e. our worst enemies are other humans, not the walkers. If they did the latter, then it would be more going in circles since we've been down this path before.
Just depends on how much AMC and the producers want to keep things going. As long as the ratings are boffo, they have no economic incentive to plot out an end, like Lost did or Breaking BAd. But that would mean just a series of repetitive, disconnected adventures, like finding a safe harbor (farm, prison) or defeating another group of survivalists (governor) or surviving various other threats.
