One of my friends has a 1970s vintage rustbucket Chevvy with one of those
dipoles in the windscreen.  It's plain bad.  Out in Long Island, the radio
is useless, save on the local FM  stations (WLIR, WDRE, etc.).  Of course,
the fact that the radio is probably stuffed with years of tobacco smoke
deposits doesn't help much.... :-)
