I currently have the Maycom AR-108. It's pretty good for what I need it for, and it has a rubber duck aerial.
I've seen telescopic aerials for as low as £6.99, and as high as £39.99.
Would buying a telescopic aerial improve the quality of reception, (or even pick up transmissions further away from my house?)
I live approx 15 miles from EMA. I can hear the approach, but the Tower is very very weak, and transmissions are impossible to understand.

That's why I told him to get expert advise Nfield.
Which antenna is best depends as much on the radio itself as it does on what you want to do with it.
Maybe you just got the wrong antenna for your receiver.
