I have no problem if people would like to have a wider scope of their FM radio. However, we can tune in to online FM radios with the internet speed that we have right now. I'm even listening to a few online FM radios that originated from other countries.

The internet is another option if we wanted to increase the radio stations we want to listen to. However, there are places where there is no internet and only the radio is available for information, so a good FM signal would be handy in times of calamities.

I use a 10 element "beam" to reach stations as far as Phoenix (about 150-175 miles). It looks like a ladder laid flat. They used to be quite common, but rather scarce now. I suspect a Google search would find some. Height is also VIP. The biggest drawback is the higher the gain of the antenna, the more directional it is.
Is using both an option? I mean, will the 2 different types of antennae cancel each other out somewhat? Maybe put the beam in the front and the traditional type in the back?
