    wintv fm reception help

    hey,

    i have an external wintv card in my car for FM radio, but i am not getting very good reception. currently i hacked the original car antenna (50 ohm) and plugged it into the wintv card (75 ohm) i know this is a impedance miss match which is why im not getting good reception.

    does anyone out there have this same problem and have u fixed it? does anyone know if there is a much more powerful 75 ohm FM antenna that will work good for me while i drive? thanks

    generally tv/fm tuner cards dont get good reception regardless of antenna. thats why you dont read much about it here.

    Perhaps if this was not posted in the Wireless Communications forum then more people would answer...
