Do you use an indoor antenna ? Nowadays, with all gear around, like micro-waves receptors, strong motors, satellites, etc., reception becomes quite poor, unless you use an external antenna, properly set to catch broadcast stations. FM reception particularly has its signal much improved in that way. Correct demodulation requires a good an somewhat large outdoor antenna. Hope I could help. Good Luck.

Am noise


in the AM frequency range, it is very hard to stop any type of interference because of the low bandwidth and not a lot can be done to suppress it, and where this band is in the frequency spectrum. There should be an AM loop on the back of your receiver, and if there is not, maybe that is why the AM reception is so poor. You can also be a better AM antenna from an electronics store to hook up to your receiver. Like I said, not a lot that can be done for interference my friend.

Bad radio reception


This will be either bad antenna connection in the back of the receiver, bad antenna cable, insufficient or poor antenna type, or possibly a bad earth connection.

Very poor FM receptio, and virtually no AM reception


The cascadia has an integrated AM-FM-WX, XM?, and CB antenna system, that is also prone to poor grounding. The best solution is to install aftermarket antenna systems for all of the equipment... I am driving a 2013 Cascadia with quite poor FM, and non existant AM, and WX reception. The XM works. I am afraid to hook up my CB to this, as it is pushing too much power, and is a sideband unit. I would like to hang the engineer by his/her toenails from the nearest tree for comming up with this garbage...

The radio won't get TV sound anymore after the switch. And no, nobody is selling a digital receiver for the TV sound yet. All this radio is good for now is regular broadcasting and the weather band.

AM radio reception


You are correct William, reception is not what it used to be for many reasons. Some corporate owners and local owners have spent much more maintaining FM facilities, and many have neglected the AM's. A good part of the AM signal is via the ground radials beneath each AM tower. In time these radials deteriorate, and with it the signal. Years ago stations licensed as daytime only shut down at night. Quite a few are now allowed to stay on with greatly reduced power, adding to the noise floor at night. You also have more AM licensees now than in the 60's. Unfortunately many of the really knowledgeable AM RF engineers have retired, or are close to doing so. AM directionals require a very experienced engineer. In addition we have many Part 15 radiators, that are devices that radiate a low level RF signal. Every home is full of them, thus more interference. We have power distribution systems that generate huge amounts of noise across the band too. Then there is the issue of manufacturers who have spent more on the FM receiver side of a radio as more migrated to FM. In the 60's, very few were FM listeners. Gone is sensitivity, selectivity and frequency response in the newer AM radios. There are a few exceptions, the CC Crane, and RCA SuperRadio, both sound good with great performance. By the way, the RCA WAS the GE SuperRadio. I also like to pick up some of the vintage radios on EBay and other sites, plus occasionally at yard sales. Unless you are in the country and don't have a house full of gadgets, DX listening can be difficult, but not impossible. Best of luck, capttomconroy@jetbroadband.com
