FM antenna - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

I think physics are going to prevent an effective FM band antenna in those dimensions. Even with cell phone FM radios the antenna is the wire for the ear buds.
