Question about Jensen Audio Players & Recorders
FM ok, but AM channels no reception. I believe antenna is disconnected. How do I remove radio from dash to check if this is true? I have the two wire removal tools but can't get radio loose.

SOURCE: better fm reception
Is it just a single wire?
If so, purchase a cheap FM antena. It looks like a "T" when spread out (4' to 5'). That should help.
You can purchase an "amplified" antenna, but if your area reception is really bad (such as in a valley) the antenna would just amplify the noise as well. Look for web based radio in this case or if you have cable there are stations on it.

I solved the problem, but I did not "fix" the problem. Rather than rig an antenna to the old Panasonic RF-544 radio, I put it upstairs where it has good reception. I put the new Sony ICF-38 downstairs where it brings in the stations I listen to. The advertsizing claim for the Sony ICF-38 is that it has "Good Sound and High Sensitivity." I believe it does have "high sensitivity" because even in the basement it brings in my desired stations. (I am still curious to know if I could have rigged an antenna to the old Panasonic RF-544.) RL

Pull off the 3 knobs for the heat controls. You will see a screw under the center knob. Remove it. Look to see if there are any screws near the vent grilles, remove them, if they are there. The whole center fascia then pulls out towards you. Remove the 4 bolts, and the radio is out. Easy.

FM reception is weak
What to do
• Extend the power cord as much as possible. The FM antenna is in the power cord.
• Move the power cord to adjust the FM antenna
• If you still have problems with FM reception, you may need an external antenna.
* Call Bose®Customer Service to request one.
The external antenna on your radio is a coax (round) design It needs an adaptor and an antenna which are cheap.
Easy to make, radio shack "F" connector 90 degrees or straight, to 300 ohm wire connections. Attatch a 300 ohm flat ribbon antenna cable to those two screws and plug into radio and see how your reception is. You will need to position the antenna wires to get best reception. I have hid them in back of paintings and so on.
Cheapest solution next to putting an extension cord on radio power cord.
