Question about Personal Radios
I have a classic auto radio out of a 69 ANC rebel The car is restored, I would like to restore the radio I've never heard the radio play, just a lot of static I have instaled a new antenna with no results
SOURCE: excessive static on AM stations
Turn on the radio and turn the AM/SW BAND switch to the AM position. MW appears in the display. Use the outer ‘fast’ tuning knob to find stations, fine tuning with the inner ‘slow’ knob
• If there is interference from adjacent stations, place the BAND WIDTH control in the NARROW position. If there is no interference, leave it in the WIDE position.
• If there is excess background noise, turn on
the SW LPF switch, which may minimize the noise.
• If a station is so strong that audio distortion occurs, reduce the gain level with the AM/SW RF GAIN control knob by turning it counterclockwise.
• The telescopic antenna does not have to be extended for AM reception. The radio has an internal, directional, ferrite-bar antenna for AM reception.
• To optimize AM reception, swivel the radio until maximum signal strength is achieved.
All of that being said: It's very tough nowadays to receive AM in this 2008 electronic world. If your able install a longwire SW antenna outside, and have access to a good earth ground, you can boost the AM signals and beat the noise being generated all around you.
