My FM reception comes in crystal clear, but my AM reception is full of static no matter what station. It used to be perfectly fine, but little by little, my AM reception deteriorated. Has anyone had any such thing happen? I don't know if it's the antenna, but seems like if it were, the FM wouldn't be working.

LOL

Are you using a stubby antenna?
I was having problems with both FM and AM when i had my super short stubby on there.. Maybe its the same deal (went from a 3" antenna to a 5" antenna and have no problems anymore)

Actually I'm using a stubby antenna as well, but I don't have any problems with AM/FM reception. Maybe it depends on where you live? *shrugs*

who listens to AM stations?


AM is really only good for news nowadays....which i only need the news on my radio during a massive thunderstorm/tornados...which ironically kills out any AM radio signal.

True.. But most of the subscribers to sirius joined up after he moved.
He's the ultimate cult leader, minus the mass suicides and plus the porn stars getting off on his show.
To the OP: Do you have a stock sound system or did you change anything around? It may be your power antenna in the back of the head unit too.
