Noob needs pointers.

Hello everyone.
I am an electronics hobbyist and audio repair engineer. I recently got hold of a couple of the 100KHz - 1GHz SDR boxes from China.
SDR is really cool. I've had Communications recievers in the past (Hallicrafters, National.. old old gear)but SDR is uncharted territory in my eyes.
I've had some fun playing around with it and the silly "antenna" you get in the pack but want to know about making a small antenna for use in my flat / around the area where I live in South London. I havent got a lot of money but please can someone give me some advice?

OK, I've bought a 9:1 Nooelec BaLUN or Un Un and have understood that it is good for frequencies up to 30MHz.
I'm going to experiment with it.
