SOURCE: No radio
The front end is bad on this reicever. Your going to need special equipment to trouble shoot this problem, as Its all RF. It is most likly not worth repairing as a shop will most likly charge you more then its worth

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.

SOURCE: I just bought an old
Any luck with checking antenna connections? I have a service manual if you need it. Tuner section in this old girl predates the LM7001. Uses ha1137-38 chips, bit more complex to repair.

AM.... what the heck is AM??? LOL
Check the antenna connection behind the radio to be sure it is taped and not touching ground. Also the antenna & cable running to it for worn spots in the shielding, or corrosion.
I think (based on knowing how manufacturers do things at times) that their is a very cheap universal chip type tuning system in play here on the order of about 10 cents value that many manufactures are probablly incorporating these days. What I did to solve this annoyance was to purchase (after many tests) a SHARP brand walkman type AM/FM hand unit that has really good AM and jack it into the preamp section before my crossover (added an extra input via Y-adapters) and use Ni-metal-hi batteries that can be recharged. I get about a week out of the 2 AA cells. I also had to build a rather good cable (shielded) to go from the unit to the 1/8 jack to cut noise a notch more. This has proven a good situation for me.
With this knowledge, I wonder what head units actually have good rejection circuitry and great gathering power for amplitude modulation?
