Touch and Radio Signal Intensity
Name: Deborah C.
What causes a radio to become clearer when I touch it or
walk near it, and how can I remedy that? Is it polarized or magnetized?
You are acting as an antenna, bringing a stronger signal to the radio,
especially when you touch it. I do not believe this is related to
polarization or magnetization.
You could remedy this effect by installing an antenna which preferably
extends above your house and brings in a strong signal.
