    I live about a 100 miles away from any radio station, I also live in a tin mobilehome. What is the best antenna to receive those wanted stations?

    You can find some radio stations on the internet. You may want to make a search for your favorite stations.

    You can use an outdoors antenna that can receive vhf signals from over 100 miles away to get your fm radio stations but you'll also need an amplifier & a pre-amp to make sure they come in ok. Another option is to listen to them online.

    I forgot to mention in my last post that not all radios will work with an external antenna so you should make sure your radio has an external antenna jack before you try connecting an outdoors antenna to it.
