Well, good for you. Agreed, the Terk is definitely fugly.
The $6 dipole antenna should be more effective, but you will have to orient it for best reception. Put it up as high as you can.

Ed, I'm going to Radio Shack tomorrow and I'll pick up a couple of those dipole antennas.

Finally, I realized the Sony, like the new Panasonic, relies on the AC cord for the FM antenna.

I've got 2 more radios coming and I'm bidding on a Panasonic 1170 (or is it an 1150?).

I had one of those little antennas, and a couple of other Terk antennas over the years. Their ability to underperform an unfolded coat hanger is a marvel of modern electronics. One of those cheap FM wire dipoles can often be discreetly hidden and will work better.

That was my hunch. Thanks, Mike.

I have one of those Rat Shack dipoles in case you need it.

I want to get an am and fm antenna for this same radio but no idea what is best. Can someone recommend? Thank you kindly.
