The C Crane company offers a wide variety of antenna products that work phenomenaly. Just use a search engine and type in C Crane company. I have had the same problem and going to Radioshack or Autozone or places like that they don't really know and don't know where to tell you to go or what to do to solve the problem.

Buzzing or static noise on AM radio; is there a fix?


AM radio signals are very susceptible to what is called spurious radiation that is to say for instance high power electrical lines, noise from the car's electrical system like the alternator and the ignition system. I would have to hear the noise to know which you have. You also may just have a defective radio. Check one thing make sure the antenna is well grounded to the chassis of the car where it is mounted.

On AM radio, there is often a sound, like a hammer hitting a 55 gal. drum interrupting the program. Does not do it on portable radio carried in the car.


all stations AM?

is the engine running?

for get the portable, some have vastly better a/m radios than any car has. in fact many cars radios a/m OR of horrid quality.

i can tell you why but its boring. (AGC, read up on that)

did you try the radio in car, parked say across town.?

did you try all stations

are you like 1 block away from an AM radio station, overloading yours.

AM radios are basically noise making radios., that is why FM was invented to stop that noise, (i cant hear it so.........?????)

are you listening to far away stations, this is normal

in fact you might hear 2 stations on same channel (freq)

and they will beat against each other.

on case of is in S.Calif where your station is clobbered by high power mexican stations 50,000 watts. strong.

and worse a night, does it get better in the day?



here is my advice, many AM stations have a rebroadcast on FM.

go there and listen. (use SAT radio?)

AM radio is subject to vast sources of noise.

ignition noise., high voltage power transmission line noise.

machinery noises, (electric)

or even illegal transmitters in your hood.



many new cars the AM radio is junk, they use this very cheap

chip inside that does this very poorly, but allows them to say

it has AM. ( for $1 cost)

the FM side is 10x better, or more. move up to FM like we all did back in 1967. (i used to build and sell converters back then)





answering for , all other modes work perfect, but AM radio..

Fix car radio static


old post, and my first radio noise post.
im an old radio guy USN, and ex ham.
Q1: AM or FM? (even on cassette or CD?)
1: bad antenna, and for sure, there are upgrades !
2: too far from station, AM is worst for static, but FM has shorter distance for same station power. (I heard XERB in VietNam! AM)
3: bad radio. (rare for both am and fm bad)
4: bad alternator can sing, play with throttle and it sings higher for higher RPM bingo. stop engine, singing gone?, bingo. Alternator.
5: and last ignition noise, so stop engine still have ignition popping sounds. no more? , then Ignition noise, clicks or pops. (spark)
6: noise has 2 sources , radiated or conducted.
if conducted on power line, 12v to radio , we can buy a filter to stop that.
older cars do this. what year is yours. a honda what a 73 civic?

The radio emitts static on the AM stations when I step on the brake pedal, but does not emitt static when on the FM stations.


This can happen for three reasons:

Do you have tinted windows? The AM radio signal travels further than FM due to being a lower frequency; however, its transmissioncan can easily be interfered. Tinted windows affect the AM signal's transmission to your car and not FM which is at a much faster frequency. Once I tinted my windows, the AM interference went way up when I accelerated and braked. I only listen to my FM channels now due to this annoying interference.

You may have electrical interference in your car causing this as well. Does it happen when rolling down the windows as well?

Third, it could be distance, the AM's transmission tower can be far away and you might be barely in range whereas the FM's transmission tower may be closer.
