The first thing to consider if you're getting poor AM reception is the building around you. Brick, cement and metal-framed structures can impede AM reception indoors. This includes signals you might easily be able to pick up in your car. If you're listening in a building that blocks reception or causes a lot of interference, don't despair. There are some things you can do - particularly if you have access to the area outside your listening space.
If you have a portable radio, install some some batteries in it and use it to find out where you get the best reception. Tune to a weak station and just walk around your listening area until you get the least interference. That might give you an ideal spot to set your radio. If that doesn't work, you can also try attaching an external antenna to your radio. Though some radios, like the CCRadio-2E, the CCRadio-SW or the CCRadio-EP come equipped with excellent AM antennas, many do not. Those radios, and even home stereos, might call for some additional hardware like an external wire antenna.
One of the easiest ways to improve your AM reception would be to get your hands on the Twin Coil Ferrite® AM Antenna. It has a twin coil ferrite inside the antenna, and it boosts reception enough to pick up stations you normally wouldn't receive at all. Still, even if you have a Twin Coil Ferrite AM Antenna, there are still things to keep in mind when trying to reduce interference.
