I need to get an indoor FM antenna (outdoor or attic is not an option). I need to pull in these stations:

WAUS, public, classical, 15 mi. SSE
WVPE, public, NPR and jazz, 40 mi. SSE
WFMT, commercial, classical, 65 mi. W

I currently have a Radio Shack 15-1843 and it is not doing the job (only picking up WAUS)

What do you recommend?

Is the SR-100 from Magnum Dynalabs any good?

I doubt an indoor antenna is going to pick up those distant stations well, especially the one 65 miles out.

The link for the Dynalab antenna has a contact icon. I suggest asking them what the reception distance of the Silver Ribbon is. Keep in mind that the terrain between you and the station makes a difference, too – i.e., the flatter the better.
