All structures - including trees can interfere with reception of radio or TV signals. Some are worse than others ie: a brick wall directly in front of the antenna (between it and the station) is far worse than I tree is. If you are unable to relocate the antenna - you may get relief by RAISING it. If that is not possible, you can try adding a powered (called "active" as opposed to un-powered or a "passive") inline amplifier. This will boost all signal levels, including "noise" but usually results in a better picture. Change the antenna itself to one that offers more GAIN - and add the amplifier if the antenna change alone is not enough. Finally, a directional antenna, pointed directly at the transmitter is the best "over the air" method of reducing "multi-path" (a common cause of "ghosting") and other types of signal interference. You can try all these at the same location as the omni-directional antenna so, they aren't really resulting in "relocation". An excellent source for information that can be custom tailored to your specific location and channels you like top watch can be found at: http://www.antennaweb.org
Check the antenna PL259 connector. It sounds like the ground (shield of the coax) is not attached properly. I would recommend replacing it with a solder type connector and solder the shield to the outer ring of the connector and the center conductor to the tip of the connector. If the problem still exists, I would recommend trying a different antenna.
Since there is no AM antenna input on this radio, you will have to get an AM proximity antenna. One that does not need to connect to the radio. At Bose they recommend the Terk AM Advantage proximity antenna. I think you can get it on Audiovox.com.
That's a problem with the digital broadcasting. Signal strength is critical, and the frequencies used are more directional. Some people are finding they get no reception at all. Your antenna may not need to be higher, but aimed in a different direction. Did you have a rotator installed as well? An outside antenna really should be pointed toward the station. You might also be able to add an amplifier to the antenna to boost the signal. But get a mast-mounted version that mounts right at the antenna, not the kind that goes at the TV set.
You will need to buy a signal amplifier antenna. One that doe not have to be connected to the Clock/Radio. It will provide the amplified signal and the radio antenna (the a/c line cord and the back of the clock/radio) will be able to pick up the signal from the amplified antenna.[http://www.radiolabs.com/products/antennas/am-antenna.php] this web link will show you one type of these antenna's. Copy the web link and paste it into the address bar in your browser. It will take you to the website. There maybe other types of these antenna's but this one had the best price. Call the store and talk to them before you buy the antenna to make sure it will work in your situation. I hope this information helps you with your antenna problems.
Try getting an antenna boost card they are compatible with all phones I believe there is one called cricket antenna boost they have them on ebay for like three dollars I havent tried one but its the only way that i know to boost your signal power
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.
