HAVING TO USE ANTENNA AIM FOR 2 HOURS TO GET SIGNAL.

ACTUALLY MULTIPLE PROBLEMS WITH THIS THING. fm modulator, USELESS. hours to locate signal using antenna aim, and then cant hold it. I only have to turn it on forty to sixty times to get bit to start. and this is my SECOND ONE. bought to replace my old one with the same exact problems.
now, i have two home cradles and a car cradle. 3 diff. antennas and 3 power plugs. the radio reacts the same w any combination of these items. the antenna is in clear view of the sky.
oh, this all started right before the merger if that has anything to do w it.
my question, WTF?

I use a wired fm modulator that the fm antenna passes through. When the sirius radio is on it blocks the regular fm signal preventing local signals from interferring. Do a search for wired fm modulator and you should find one. Mine actually fit inside the dash on my pickup.

The atomic clock on my Sangean RCR-2 has not set after 2 days.


I think the white cord is the fm antenna. The gray one with the thick end is the am antenna. The frequency used to contact the atomic clock signal uses the am antenna.

you may be in an area where am stations don't come in,, am uses straight lines of frequency where FM uses a modulated signal, which travels much farther, I bought a antenna signal booster from radio shack for a few dollars , and was able to get the stations, some pretty static filled though, but the more local ones came in ok, another thing to check is that the unit is plugged into a grounded receptacle ,

The static level is so high I am unable to hear the radio.


Under menu, select FM frequency. Try using different frequency. A nearby FM station could be bleeding its signal onto the FM frequency your unit is using by default.

Am/fm radio stations not clear... I have the AM antenna attached... but there is no attachment for FM


First of all check for any nearby source of interference.....Move your unit away from all computers, fluorescent lights, neon lights, microwaves, cell phones, and cell phonemag-glass_10x10.gif chargers. These devises tend to produce noise in the medium frequency band, where AM radio is broadcast.
If the unit plugs into the wall with a nonpolarized plug (where both prongs are the same size), try reversing the plug inmag-glass_10x10.gif the outlet. Moving the plug to another outlet might help, too.
check for fault in the antenna lead, (common) or bad earth on the antenna to body
If you don't have an antenna connected to your FM receiver,With a receiver or tuner, connect a wire-loop or T-shaped dipole FM antenna to the back of your unit. Move the antenna until you get the cleanest signal. Use a signal-strength meter or display to gauge signal strength if your unit has one.
  • Step 2 If you're still not getting a good signal, try an indoor amplified antenna, which you'll find at an electronics store. Don't buy one unless you get a guarantee that you can return it for full credit if it doesn't solve your reception problems.
  • Step 3 If your signal is weak because you live a long way from the transmitter, install an outside antenna and mount it as high as is practical. If you're primarily interested in getting signals from one station or from a group of stations in one direction, get a directional antenna and point it toward the transmitters.
  • Step 4 If you're using a portable FM radio where the only antenna is the power cord, stretch the cord as straight as possible and experiment with positioning again.
  • Step 5 Temporarily switch to monaural mode to improve a weak signal on an FM receiver.

    It IS an airborne signal so you can expect it to be affected by the antenna and other electromagnetic interference. Most FM tuners have a selector for how aggressively they accept or reject a marginal signal. Perhaps yours is crossing that threshold periodically.

    Nextar GPS Never acquires GPS Signal


    The only thing you can try is the external antenna for this unit.

    You could be in an area that has poor signal.

    If it where me, I would go to a place that I could return a unit,
    I only use garmin, there hand-held unit's are the top rated for
    the frequency of getting satellites.

    So say you have a walmart, see if you can return a unit, buy a garmin
    and see if it get better reception, and if it doesn't then its not the unit.

    If it does,sell you old one on ebay.

    No Signal After Reconnecting Roady2


    Try playing the Roady 2 through a fm radio with the audio jack(middle connection) disconnected and the FM Frequency & Fm Radio set to the same station. At least this will tell if the receiver is working. I suspect that you got an aftermarket audiojack for your stereo. Might want to check that. Go back to the manual FM Modulation setup instructions. Any FM receiver will work. Good Luck
