    house.I had installed a new fresh 9 volt battery in the little battery
    holder clip and I tried it out on a bunch of my old radios, exactly like
    the instructions said to do, but I didn't notice any improvement at
    all.You can build one yourself for only a few dollars worth of parts,
    Radio Shack stores probably have the parts you will need.Yes indeed, the Amazing Tiny Tenna Amplified Radio Antenna! Get yours today!
    I checked and apparently they don't sell them anymore. Actually, both the Tiny-Tenna and the Pill Bottle Antenna Tuner they had were pilfered from Doug DeMaw's "QRP Notebook".
