Tips for improving your reception of IPR:
For better reception of Interlochen Public Radio, make sure you have an antenna correctly connected to your radio. Most radios can connect to an external antenna through two screw-type connectors on the back of the unit.
Adding an inexpensive FM dipole (wire) antenna might help your reception of Interlochen Public Radio. Attach the two antenna wires to the screws on your radio, and orient the wires for the best reception. Usually the wires should be perpendicular to a line between your radio and the transmitter location you want to receive.
A more effective solution is to install an FM antenna above your living space (on the roof or in the attic) and connect to your radios with an insulated 75-ohm cable. Installing a directional FM antenna, aimed at IPR, is the most effective way to bring our signal to your house.
You may also be able to connect to your television cable system using a splitter and, if needed, a 75 ohm-to-300 ohm transformer.
All of these items are available at electronics stores (Radio Shack, for example).
