    extend the wire, make it as high as possible

    i have an old radio in my garage, which has a lot of metal, and this makes it work fine!

    stick the aerial where the sun don't shine

    in all seriousness i have always found shower radios abit useless i ahd one that was always crackly and another that just changed channels when it felt like it

    the average shower lasts 4 mins, do you really need a radio?

    [CENTER]Why not connect the aerial to the water pipe supplying the shower unit. This will then extend the aerial reception!
