Question about Bose Wave Radio
Hi, to all. There are currently two types of Bose Wave Radio system available in the market. The first one being the WRCD with the top loading CD mechanism. This unit does come with the Antennae cable inside the box and this should sort out your problem. Another option is using an outdoor aerial antennae and connect this to the antennae port behind the unit. The second one is the new Wave Music System with the front loading tray mechanism. This system uses a unique concept of using the electrical cable included in the box and utilise your electrical pwoer line as the antennae receptor. I recommedn to keeping the pwoer calbe fully extended. Another solution for this is that Bose service centers do have a specific spare parts calbe called the AM/FM antennae cable for WMS which you can simply buy for around 20$ I assume. this basically bypases the power calbe and routes antennae reception through this minicable (brownish colored RJ calbe).
Glad to be of service...

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.
