6925U about 0030 to 0045.  Good signal S8-9 steady to midwest.  Piano music, no ID heard though there were a few minutes I missed in the middle.  Off with sound effect.

6925AM dance music, 2227 ID and cat meow, S9 to 10 over 9 to NE IN
Nice signal, few fades

Go to usb mode and try pressing the filter button FIL-see if there is more than one option available. Try AM as well.  There may be a stock narrow filter there...not sure.  That will tell you how many filter deals you have going on.

6940U right at new year's Eastern-great signal
scary stories of being on the snow covered roof, the white govt van, DAMN!

Yes what Pigmeat says-magnet wire is great.  You can even transmit through a dipole made with it after you get your license.  The only person ever to notice mine was a foot or two under it on a sunny day all afternoon.
Rat shack should have it in an ok gauge.  Not hair thin, not mechanical pencil lead thick, just like sewing thread thick.  I can't remember the gauge number-maybe 28 or 30.  Toss it up over something at least head level and weigh it down with a nut or bolt on the far end and stay far away from the power or comm lines.  Count on it breaking once in a while or getting knocked down by birds.
Really you might want to try some wire around the top of a room.  I had decent reception with an R8 with 30 feet of wire running around the top of 3 walls when I was in a first floor apartment, but there was very low noise at that place.  Now I live in electronic hell subdivision.

What has been said already-you must hunt your house for sources of electronic noise.  Go on the hunt with your handheld unplugging each electronic device.  Try the main breaker box as well shutting everything off one at a time until everything is off if needed.  Find the noise.
Dipole is recommended even if you have to bend each arm around the attic.  Other than that just go longest wire you can comfortably fit.  Bigger tabletop radios usually far outperform handhelds.  You can get a used Drake R8 for 400 tops.
If you get your license, the Icom 718 is hard to beat in price.  600 tops new.  400-500 used.  AM filter is a little wide compared to plain receivers.  If you are lucky you will get one with expanded 40meter band with broadcast down to 6900.  But to do so would be wrong.

6924.72ish good signal S9 +/- a little to midwest

I can do that when I have a pickup that picks up radio chained through a bunch of delay and fuzz pedals.  See, it tangentially relates to radio.
