Try to place it away from the overhead light or place the antenna outside if you have some

Am/fm radio static


Does the static change with engine speed? If so there are filters you can put in the power wire to the radio

We have two Motorola t6310 two radios with the FM radio feature. When we turn the FM radio on, we get nothing. No static sound comes out. What could we be doing wrong? Thanks!


Here is a link to the user guide for the T6300 series. http://www.giantintl.com/ContentManage-new/manuals/Moto/T6300_User_Manual_E.pdf

The instructions for tuning the FM radio feature are on pages 22-23. You can have the radio scan for available stations, or you can do a manual search .01khz at a time. Once you have found a station, you can save the location.

Best regards.

FM antenna is not providing reception, despite cable connected to powered antenna amplifier. TV also connected to powered antenna amplifier (splitter) works fine. FM mode produces only static. I purchased...


If I understand your setup, you've connected the receiver antenna terminal to the output of the antenna amplifier. If this is true, I'd suggest trying the receiver using a plain old FM dipole antenna (available at Radio Shack and other stores) or even just a piece of wire hooked to the antenna terminal. You should be able to pick up some local FM stations then.

What might be happening is that the FM is being filtered out by the amplifier. Some amps made mainly as a TV signal booster have an FM trap designed to block the FM broadcast band. In the analog broadcast days, the FM band was right near the sound part of a TV signal, and the trap was there to prevent interference. It may be filtering out your FM band.It may also be possible that you're just overloading the FM antenna input with the amplified signal. Sometimes a signal can be too strong. Using a simple wire antenna will let you test the receiver by itself.

Other than connecting an antenna you shouldn't have to do any setup for FM reception. If you still get no stations at all when using a simple antenna, then the receiver may need service. But I doubt Circuit City would have sold a floor model that was defective, even at the very end, unless it was clearly marked as such and sold "as-is". I'm pretty sure you'll find that the receiver works with an antenna made for FM.

FM radio intermittent static on '95 volvo 940


Sounds like you either left something loose or lost a piece of shielding. Was there a filter on the antenna that you forgot to put back on?

Okay, I have the new Nuvi 880 with the built in FM transmitter. To use it of course I try and find the best unused station available which for me is FM 88.1. The problem is I still get some static coming...


The problem is that these units put out a very low level signal on FM. This is mainly due to restrictions and rules established by the FCC. The levels are such, so that they don't interfere with other nearby equipment or radios.

When you go to touch the unit, your arm is acting like an antenna, making the signal from your Nuvi propagate better to your car's radio.

If you are using a window mount, you are somewhat limited in what you can do. The closer you move the Nuvi to the car's antenna or radio, the better. Just for fun, try positioning the unit on the dash (while sitting still). Can you find a spot where it sits right over the radio that sounds the best with minimal noise? If so, you might want to get a friction mount and put your Nuvi on the dash, right over the radio.

Another thing you can try is getting a plug that fits in the headphone jack, like at Radio Shack, and soldering a couple feet of wire to ground lead of the plug. Plug the plug with the wire into the headphone jack. This is what manufacturers of consumer FM transmitters provide as a means to make an external antenna.

Radio set up on samsung j700


FM radio works the same way that AM radio works. The difference is in how the carrier wave is modulated, or altered. With AM radio, the amplitude, or overall strength, of the signal is varied to incorporate the sound information. With FM, the frequency (the number of times each second that the current changes direction) of the carrier signal is varied. FM signals have a great advantage over AM signals. Both signals are susceptible to slight changes in amplitude. With an AM broadcast, these changes result in static. With an FM broadcast, slight changes in amplitude don't matter -- since the audio signal is conveyed through changes in frequency, the FM receiver can just ignore changes in amplitude. The result: no static at all.
For sellecting frenquencies, go to radio, options, set frequency and search...
Good luck!

SL100 static and bad FM reception


I have noticed various changes in my invehicle FM reception as well. There should be a external antenna that came with your car kit. This is precisely for these types of issues. It is designed to run along the windshield inside the car closest to the Cars radio antenna. It should plugin to the bottom of the cradle. Then tune it into a clean FM station (one that has no local station on it) and position the cradle and/or ext. antenna till you get the best reception in your vehicle. It could very well be that the antenna has come has loose on your car stereo backplane. You would probably notice decreased reception on regular AM/FM stations as well though.
Your wifi reception/functionality is a completely different animal and has no bearing on the FM transmitter in the car cradle. When your on wifi your not receiving signal from a sat. anymore just simply streaming internet audio like your computer.
Good luck.
