    Given that 90 miles is not that far for AM or SW, I’m gonna guess you are looking for hints to get FM stations.

    If that is the case, the best way to accomplish this is to connect the radio to an outdoor antenna, so any radio with the ability to connect an external antenna would be a decent ‘first try’ at this, If there are ‘challenges’ like stations near the frequency you are trying to receive, selectivity may be an issue, and ultimately different radios will have different sensitivity figures which will impact what you can hear, but I would strongly suggest the FIRST option is to use what you already have, and try attaching a real antenna (like a TV antenna) to the FM input and see if that doesn’t do the trick.

    Once you have tried that, you will at least know what the issues are and you can provide further details about what worked and what didn’t so you can start asking more specific questions. Some people may try to tell you ‘this can’t be done’ but that is NOT true, Good luck,
