Thanks, Scott. If someone wanted to rewind the internal ferrite rod, and added 13-15 turns around the center of the new winding, it would work that way, but many signals would leak into the internal antenna. That chip has lots of gain. In desperation I wrapped a piece of anti-static bag (like transistors and ICs are shipped in) around the toroid, which knocked down a couple of locals about 20 dB when no antenna is connected.
