Typically when you can get am reception and can't get fm reception the problem is not the antenna but is in fact in the fm tuner- many times it turns out to be bad solder joints in the tuner itself

If you installed an aftermarket antenna you may have to splice two wires to make full connection, email [email protected] and explain and they may be able to email you instructions for a solution you may not have it grounded properly.

2011 Chevy Traverse radio (AM/FM and Satellite Radio) works great when the vehicle is OFF. Once I start the vehicle the FM and Satellite Radio go Fuzzy. Replaced factory radio, Replaced alternator.

It would have been helpful If you had said whether the antenna is a conventional external mast type or a windscreen mounted type?

What you could be describing is the interference noise caused by a vehicle with unsuppressed systems or a radio receiving a poor signal strength.

A conventional mast antenna must have an effective ground connection and the best way to check this is with an ohmmeter at the plug outer to ground (and also plug centre to mast). It is important no current is drawn through the antenna ground so ensure the radio ground is good.
Windscreen antennas rarely perform well and usually require a wideband rf preamplifier to provide the required signal strength. This also applies to the modern "external bump" type antenna. If the rear screen heater is being used as an antenna it is possible the failed rear wiper might be the indirect cause of the trouble, especially if it is a power failure and the signal preamp shares the supply.

Once all the basic requirements have been satisfied it is sometimes necessary to fit a variety of suppressors to the alternator, wipers, instruments, radio supply and so forth. In the days before radios became standard our professional radio fitter could virtually throw a radio in some cars without problems but other supposedly identical models he had to spend the day almost dismantling them and fitting a box full of stuff...

Where the antenna of Magnavox Solid State Radio is located? I would like to install one on my radio that I just got.

I don't know but will take a guess - I expect the radio is a vintage am/fm transistor radio. The am antenna is likely to be a ferrite rod tuned directional type that will be inside the cabinet.

The fm antenna might be a single core wire that dangles from the set in the way commonly used by many fm radio-alarm clock-radios. This performs the same function as the single telescopic antenna of portable radios without the cost and similarly is connected internally to the first rf stage. Sometimes due to age, mishandling or ignorance the dangling wire is lost or cut off.

A higher quality table radio (not designed to be portable) is equipped with a facility to connect a 300 ohm balanced antenna, a 75 ohm fm antenna or both.

The 300 ohm type connects to a pair of screws accessible at the rear without removing any covers and is usually an indoor type. The 75 ohm type plugs in with a standard coax plug and could be either an indoor type or an outdoor type.

A matching transformer is available to use a 75 ohm antenna with a 300 ohm input. The 300 ohm type is highly directional in horizontally polarised signal areas and is not always convenient to use.

How do I get an antenna for the FM connection?

You can use an old rabbit ears style antenna or go to a radio shack and get a flat ribbon style. If you're close to the radio stations a single section of wire about 2 feet long connected to one of the antenna screws will work too.

My brother gave me the receiver, it is a AV AVR 1905 Denon do not have the antenna so all I get is static.

Test and confirm if the amplifier is working with an imput source. If the fault is only a loss of FM/AM signals then try and connect an external antennae based on the signal strength in your area to confirm if there is a fault in the radio sectiion. You can conect a set of wires to the FM loop connection and keep it up , if the signal strength is very good it will give you the signal after a search. Memorise, set an external antennae with a proper setting to get the best clarity.

I have a Bose Lifestyle v20 home theater system and whenever I use the radio ( FM/AM ), no sound/music comes out. The rest are fine, but only the FM/AM ones dont work. It used to, but now its gone.

I hope you checked if the antenna wire is connected before reporting this defect.
All modern radios have automatic muting. No sound will come out unless the receiver gets enough signal strength to give you an undistorted sound, so if your antenna wire is disconnected you will get no sound.

My Sony CDX-MP70 unit plays CDs and works on aux off my iPod but when I try to listen to am or fm it's nothing but static if I scan for a station it will just search forever, I took it apart but it all...

Check for a loose antenna connection, at the unit and where your antenna is attached to your car. Also, check fuses, some cars have 'powered amplified' antennas.
If those dont work, try resetting the unit. On most units there is a small pinhole behind the faceplate(not on the faceplate). Could also be the internal tuner has gone out...

Hope this helps

Am/fm radio stations not clear... I have the AM antenna attached... but there is no attachment for FM

First of all check for any nearby source of interference.....Move your unit away from all computers, fluorescent lights, neon lights, microwaves, cell phones, and cell phonemag-glass_10x10.gif chargers. These devises tend to produce noise in the medium frequency band, where AM radio is broadcast.
If the unit plugs into the wall with a nonpolarized plug (where both prongs are the same size), try reversing the plug inmag-glass_10x10.gif the outlet. Moving the plug to another outlet might help, too.
check for fault in the antenna lead, (common) or bad earth on the antenna to body
If you don't have an antenna connected to your FM receiver,With a receiver or tuner, connect a wire-loop or T-shaped dipole FM antenna to the back of your unit. Move the antenna until you get the cleanest signal. Use a signal-strength meter or display to gauge signal strength if your unit has one.
  • Step 2 If you're still not getting a good signal, try an indoor amplified antenna, which you'll find at an electronics store. Don't buy one unless you get a guarantee that you can return it for full credit if it doesn't solve your reception problems.
  • Step 3 If your signal is weak because you live a long way from the transmitter, install an outside antenna and mount it as high as is practical. If you're primarily interested in getting signals from one station or from a group of stations in one direction, get a directional antenna and point it toward the transmitters.
  • Step 4 If you're using a portable FM radio where the only antenna is the power cord, stretch the cord as straight as possible and experiment with positioning again.
  • Step 5 Temporarily switch to monaural mode to improve a weak signal on an FM receiver.

    Make sure that this is NOT a "Sure Connect" version that has a very weak FM transmitter, but the older original model with a bland box. Make sure no earphone is plugged-in, then go to the menu and set the FM frequency and set the FM output level and you should be all set..

    Delphi SKYFi3 XM Radio Repeater

    You begin by setting up your existing (((XM))) antenna the one that came in your home kit (not included in repeater package) in a location that gets good reception of the (((XM))) signal. This may be outside, or on a south facing window sill. This antenna gets plugged into the rear of the Delphi (((XM))) Radio Signal Repeater Transmitter. A power jack is right next to the antenna connection, and should be plugged in and to the wall with the included power supply. There is also a "PWR OUT" selector switch on the rear of the unit which allows you to control the strength of the signal transmitted from the unit.

    Once the power and antenna are attached, both blue indicator lights will light up on the face of the unit. The blue antenna indicator will light up only to signify that the antenna is attached correctly. It does not let you know whether your antenna is in a location receiving a good (((XM))) signal or not. You will have to look at the signal strength indicator on your (((XM))) radio receiver do determine best location for the (((XM))) antenna.

    Once you have this setup, place the Repeater Antenna close to your existing (((XM))) Radio and plug it into your antenna jack on the (((XM))) radio cradle. This connector is identical to your (((XM))) Home Antenna provided with all Boom boxes and (((XM))) home receivers and kits so compatibility is guaranteed. The Repeater Receiver Antenna does not require any separate power connections. Hope this helps!

    FM output

    I had the same problem. Only thing that I came up with that was consistant is plugging it into the aux jack on my radio so you don't have to depend on FM frequency. But, my unit crapped out this week and I hope it is under warranty.
