The main thing, as m.zilch says, is to find something that works. Get a dipole antenna like the one he references at Radio Shack (oh, nevermind!). Make one out of some 300 ohm twin lead wire, probably getable at Home Depot. I assume you'r tuner/receiver has a coxial F-connector input, so you might need a balun (BALanced-UNbalanced) adapter, but try it first by just poking one of the wires into the center hole of the F-connector. Once you confirm that you can get a reasonable signal, then you can upgrade it and worry about how it looks. How far are you from the FM station you want to receive? And what is the direction of that station's antenna?
