No Radio Reception In My Office

Hello,

I would like to know if there exists any portable radios with FM capabilities that can reach beyond office interferrence. The office where I work has so much computer and internet workings going on that no one has been able to receive radio reception. I have also been told that this could be due to the building's concstruction as well. (lot of steel)

I want to purchase a radio that can reach beyond and deliver a signal. Can you recommend any for me?

Thank you!
Carol

I guess maybe you can try a Sony or a Panasonic radio, they can deliver a decent signal on a certain channel.

SOURCE: no radio reception in office.

most portables have a very weak FM receiver, and a building interior tends to block a good deal of signals. your best bet is an old fashioned unit with a large retractable antenna.

How can I get my midland 9001z from AM to FM


Hi Trevor,

The Midland radio you have is NOT capable of FM transmit & receive. It is a Citizen's Band radio that operates on channels 1 thru 40 that are assigned to the 26.965-27.405 MHz frequency range. These are the standard 40 Ch CB frequencies in the U.S. (and may not be legal for use in other parts of the world without a license from your country's communications authorities). It also offers Weather Band reception - again these are US frequencies that may or may not even be used at all in the UK. Since the radio only displays a channel number, you don't actually know the frequency you're monitoring or transmitting on. Your friends on CH 5 may be in a completely different band.

Even if they are on the same frequency, the fact that they are operating in FM mode means that you would hear something - but it may not be intelligible - and the same would be for them listening to you transmit in AM mode. If you could have them switch their radio to AM, all would be fine. I suspect they use FM as there is much less static when compared to AM.

If they won't change to FM, you'll either have to stop trying to talk to them or buy a radio capable of FM (and make sure it has the same frequencies as theirs!).

Good luck!

Bad fm reception


This is probably due to the area your FM antenna is placed. If your house/office is surrounded by buildings, the signal will weaken and fade before it reaches the antenna. Also, if it is surrounded by many walls(i.e. deep inside an office complex), you will have bad reception.

The FM radio reception went out. AM radio reception is still ok. What should I look for to fix the loss of FM radio reception?


Pull radio and check antenna plug in rear of radio, They'll still pull AM with antenna unplugged

Am fm reception bad


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.

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.

    FM reception for Sony ICF-CD513?


    The electrical cord acts as an antennae for this radio. Uncoiling the cord will give the best reception for FM. Rotating the radio (and built in ferrite bar antennae) will give the best reception for AM listening.

    I own a 2005 jetta with a factory rady, cassette


    you can try a AM/FM antenna booster if you know how to get to the back of the radio. Otherwise the radio ground needs to be checked out and the antenna ground would need to be tested to see if there was corrosion on the antenna base or the connector to the back of the radio. On some cars the antenna is located in bad area and they don't get the signal boost off of the cars ground plane The more reflective surface you have on the car the more radio waves will bounce back and increase signal strength. Also Depending on atmospheric conditions and skip conditions sun spots and other natural occurring things can cause poor reception. The signal booster is about $10.00 at any radio Shack or any auto parts store. Hope this helps.

    Improve reception


    HI there,

    Well Yes you can improve the reception, please follow the below steps -

    Improve FM Radio Reception -
     
    1. If you don't have an antenna connected to your FM receiver, purchase a simple dipole antenna--a simple T-shape flexible wire-- and connect it to the FM antenna inputs on the receiver. Because FM signals are directional, you'll want to experiment with the positioning of the wire to find the best reception of the station you're trying to receive.
     
    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.
     
    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.
     
    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.
     
    5. Temporarily switch to monaural mode to improve a weak signal on an FM receiver.


    Improve AM Reception -
     
    1. Gradually rotate the radio 360 degrees. Leave it in the position where it sounds best.
     
    2. Reverse the AC plug if it isn't polarized. (If you can flip the plug over, then it's non-polarized.)
     
    3. Plug the radio into a different AC outlet.
     
    4. Move the radio closer to a window.
     
    5. Experiment to learn if appliances and powered products in your home are causing interference: computer monitor, television, electric blanket, light dimmer, fluorescent light, hair dryer, air conditioner, smoke detector. If possible, turn off the offending item. Otherwise, move the radio to another room.
     
    6. Upgrade to an external antenna if your receiver, tuner or radio has a place to connect one.
     
    7. Buy a passive AM antenna that doesn't need to be connected to a radio or receiver.

    Good Luck!!

    Thanks
