A good antenna is really important for listening to low power stations like WRYR-LP. WRYR-LP is limited to 100 watts of effective radiated power, so the best way to improve your reception is get a decent antenna. If your stereo or radio at home doesn't have an antenna plugged into it, then you really ought to get one.
At the very least, get a "folded dipole" antenna made out of ribbon cable. They cost about $3 from Radio Shack and are much, much better than nothing. A better antenna is also available for about $10. Two suppliers for this antenna can be found on the web: Supplier No. 1; Supplier No. 2. WRYR-LP does not endorse either supplier.

You can make your own antenna fairly easily and gain better reception of WRYR's signal. Thanks to Brian B. for these links:
