Default S50 finally recorded full 2's what I did

I have been reading the posts to this forum ever since I upgraded to the latest firmware on my S50 about 4 weeks ago. I found out I wasn't the only one having recordings drop out. After reading numerous posts, I decided to get rid of the S50 PNP antenna and replaced it with a Starmate car antenna. I moved it around the room near different windows with no luck. After about 15 minutes of spinning my wheels and getting little to no reception, I accidently laid the antenna on top of my alarm clock radio and low and behold the reception jumped up to 100%!!! I took it away from the radio a couple inches and the reception dropped to 0%!!! I put it back on top of the radio and the reception jumped back to 100% This has been working for the last 4 nights getting my Stern fix for my train ride into work. Not real sure why it works...maybe the electrical force of the radio increases the antenna signal strength. Let me know if this works for anybody else.
It's peanut butter jelly time!!!
