    Not for AM, you can't. Just the Latin stations on the fringes of FM.

    Couldn't you JailBreak the iPad and use MyWi (or whatever the WiFi app is called)? Or is that not an option

    Yeah of course you can do that. It's no different to me using my iPhone SIM in a Three MiFi wireless access point and going online with that.

    Just make sure you know the APN, username and password for your network.

    JSAYER's suggestion sounds the easiest.
