Hi Monte,

Older radios have a kind of screw inside, which functions as an attenuation 
for the arial.
This is to match the impedance of the arial with the receiving part of the 
Try to find this screw, which is normally attached to a variable capacitor 
and turn it while the radio has been tuned to a less powerfull radiostation. 
A manual will help in finding the screw.
When the best sound is reached, the radio has been tuned with the arial 

Hope this helps.
