Can a vegetable atop your antenna help pull in distant stations? It seems so! This week on Car Talk, Ben from Jackson, Mississippi told a folkloric tale involving his dad, a Ford LTD, a country service station… and an Idaho potato.
You can hear Ben's call with Tom and Ray right here.)
Does it really work? Ray thought that one of Idaho's best could indeed pull in radio signals, possibly because it's got water inside, and is conductive. But, how does it actually pick up the radio signal? Ray had no idea.
What do you think? Would it work... and if so, how? Share your thoughts right here. And thanks!
