It looks OK? You've tried two radios and they both do the same thing. It has to be the antenna. You should be able to get a replacement cheap at the scrap yard. Not much call for used antennas.

....at all? NO stations for you. (chinese accent), if there ain't nuthin, you're in the middle of nowhere (I can't get any FM in clearlake) or you got another defective unit.,,,oy.

Tenspeed, you should be keen on "this is an Emergency Broadcast, had this been an Actual Emergency"....you'd miss this as a connection to the past...as a badass soldier type guy would reminisce...

if they did drop the bomb on us, we'd like live coverage of it? the radio is for more than entertainment~
