Coat Hangers

I have just replaced the old ariel in my XD withe a brand new coat Hanger from the dry cleaners. I now have crystal clear reception on my radio even with the car running on open pipes. Can anyone explain this ?

Re: Coat Hangers

The real questions is how well is the aerial working for hanging up your clothes?

You can't shape an arial into the shape of Australia like you can with the coat hanger
