Hi There Laura,
For you to get radio reception then you will need an aerial...
The FM stations are very weak and thus need a good long aerial to collect these weak signals.
Some receivers need the aerial to be a "loop" so and on the rear of the receiver there will be a special two port aerial connector for the FM..
You dont say where you are but if you are in the "outback' then a good long aerial will be needed...

The same can be said for the AM radio signals these are much lower in frequency but still need an aerial.
There is a difference with the AM signals as they also need a good earth as follows.
On the back of the receiver there will be an aerial connector marked AM and it will show an earth connector and and aerial connector.

There needs to be a good earth connected to the earth connection and another long wire connected to the aerial connector.
The earth should be a metal spike about 500mm long driven into the soil outside in the garden
and connected to a wire which comes inside thru the window to the earth connector on the rear of the receiver.
The aerial wire must not be connected to earth at all, but insulated.....
this wire connects to the AM connector out thru the window and up to the nearest high point. Like a tree or a pole...NOT A POWER POLE as that dangerous.

When you connect to the tree use a piece of plastic rope or something to insulate the wire from what ever it touches, as the radio signals are not allowed to come in contact withthe earth until they get inside the receiver...
You can use a wire with a plastic cover on it if you like..
You may wish to ask your neighbour if you can look at his aerial connections and learn how its done...

He wont mind.... unless you are "outback" and the nearest neighbour is 100miles away..
That makes it more difficult.

If you get stuck ask here again and I'll pass on more detail for you..

Cheers for now
From YUBEUT..

the changer plays through the fm on the radio, you need to find out what station it is tuned to. should be between 88 and 95 or so. you could just try seeking until the changer is picked up.

you might try bringing a portable fm receiver out to your car and seeing it the station is blocked on it too, with the automotive system also running, if it is turn off the car and see if the portable then receives the signal,if so you have another signal produced by the car or its radio which is blocking the station.If you try this let me know what happens.
