Why do we have radio interference when floresenct lights are on. when we turn the lights on in our garage cannot get any radio station just static

Florescent lights are notorious for making RF noise! It is the way the lights work and there is no real way to eliminate the problem except to replace the lights or not use them. On the radio's side, the design of the receiver will either keep the noise out or magnify it and there is not a whole lot one can do about this!
To lessen the radio from receiving the noise, move the location of the radio or use an external antenna. Some times a filter can decrease the level of noise.

My Oregon Scientific WR602 frequently loses it's settings and I have to reset it before it will pick up the NOAA again. Once I do that everything is fine for a while, then it loses it's settings again and...

It happens, and can be discouraging at times. Not sure what your locale is, but there are certain geographical areas that are more equipped with towers to create a more stronger and consistent signal, whereas there are also areas that have less towers that create a weaker signal. If you are noticing that your WR is frequently losing a signal, or are receiving consistent white noise/static, you might try moving your WR device into a different location. It may take some test time at each location.
Here are some other tips:

1) Make sure your WR is placed in a location away from the use of too many electrical devices. Sometimes, just plugging your device away from your computer, desktop telephone, answering machine, and other electrical devices will frequently solve the problem.

2) Try stationing your device to a higher location. If you have a 3 story home, consider placing it in the upstairs. Same applies with lower levels. If you have a one story home, try stationing your weather radio higher up and test your signal then.

3) Make sure that your WR is capable of receiving a signal. The best signals are typically reached when the receiver is placed near a window with no visible interference blocking the transmission.

4) Make sure your battery is charged or unit is placed in the charging base to receive a solid signal.

5) Make sure your location and channels are set correctly. If you set your location to AUTO, you should have no problem hearing weather reports for your area. If you would like to hear the weather report for your county only, call 1-888-697-7263. Follow the prompts through a simple voice menu.
(OR) go to Click the state for which information is needed.

Can't pick up any stations

Some Grundig models have a history of poor front end design where just a bit of static electricity will wipe out tuning. Serious flaw.

No radio reception in office.

most portables have a very weak FM receiver, and a building interior tends to block a good deal of signals. your best bet is an old fashioned unit with a large retractable antenna.

Some Grundig models have a history of being friend by just small amounts of static electricity such as walking across a rug. It wipes out the tuning circuit.

Excessive static on AM stations. Waves in and out. Not so on car radio. Is there an antenna to eliminate this?

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
when needed.

• 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.

No reception sometimes

Either this is typical shortwave reception characteristics, or you intermittent antenna connection.
