Hi oldquincpie

If it is a problem that has just started, it is probably a bad earth on your antenna. If it is fender mounted, it may have dirt and rust under its base. Try loosening it off and cleaning under it with some emery tape. put it back together and try it. If you still have no luck, it may be that the antenna has a faulty internal connection. replacement may be necessary.
If the problem has always been there(since radio installed), you may need to do some radio interference suppression efforts to the car. Check the aerial first and see how you go. In the workshop, we have a spare aerial to plug into the back of the radio and temporarily earth it to the chassis somehow to check for an antenna fault.

Cannot get AM reception on new Bose Wave radio. What would help?


Try installing an antenna to the radio. There is a coaxial jack for one on the back of the radio.

I am having very poor FM reception with my Bose Radio wave system. Is there an external antenna that can be attached?


The power cord is the antenna and it should be stretched out straight for best possible reception. You could experiment with re-orienting the Bose, too.

There is a threaded 75-ohm coaxial FM External connector. You could probably get a compatible FM antenna at an electronics store.

See the manual, Page 10

RDS reception with BMW Business radio


Well i remember the M25 being built so i wouldnt know about radio reception ,but i do remember radio london and caroline.Now i would imagine that this sort of auto reset of tuning reception is controled by a micro chip and this chip is now not working as it should so if you want it to work then its most likely cheaper to install a new radio.Or just use long wave for radio 4.

I have a 1970's Sony AM Receiver ICR-9. Reception is poor and sounds almost like it is receiving on another band. It has been a great radio and would like to retain. Bill


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.

Radio reception


Cb radio is line of sight. If there is a hill in the way, or some other kind of structure it will block the radio waves.

But also, radio waves, will bounce of the ionosphere and come back down.

So whats probably happening is...

You hear people close because they are near. You can't hear some one some what far away because of hills or something, but you talk to people far away because the are within range of the radio waves bouncing back down to them

My Audi A4 1.8T saloon has lost aerial reception and every station is unlistenable, my aerial is built into the back window, any idea what the problem could be? Thanks, Jim.


It is probably the stereo.. It could be that the pre-amp (which is a small amplifier on the signal coming in from the antenia) has failed.. With out the pre-amp working the reception will be very poor..

Good luck..

How good is fm tuner reception? We live approx 50 miles from transmitters and have trouble getting clear signals. Is Bose just good sound quality, or does tuner provide superior reception?


I live in Vail Az about 110-120 miles from Phoenix Az I can pick up 60% of the stations decent. The power cord acts as a fm antenna. Plus this Bose Wave CD/MP3/FM

Am reception


I've used this radio for years.  It's a direct replacement for Porsche cars up to about 1998.  Installation is easy and make sure to get the iPod connection cable.  It's an assessory.  
About AM yes there's the 9kHz vs 10KHz, but frankly here in LA it gets better AM reception than the JBL in my new Prius.  The only problem is you can't buy it in NA.  Getting it from the EU is a pain.  But it's worth it
