Be aware that the AGC has a very long timeconstant, you should leave
it powered up in one place for at least a couple of minute before
passing judgement.

If you have an "I" steel beam in your house, try putting the receiver
on that, it boosts the ferrite antenna pickup by a lot.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
