View Full Version : am / fm radio reception fuzzy...

Do I love this little "E" of mine!!! However, because I live out in the boondocks I am not getting good radio reception and I am getting battery noise through the speakers of the radio. My satellite reception is great except for the dead areas I drive through. I have the connections hooked up to get music from my Iphone to the radio. The problem there is that I go through those dead areas and I lose the "iheart" radio connection. Any ideas on how I might be able to utilize the existing radio, but get better reception and less battery noise through the speakers?

Not sure if this would work, but how about streaming iheart radio from your phone thru the car?

Thanks for the reply Robert. That is exactly what I am doing using the connectivity device in the glove compartment. Doing it this way is clear and beautiful until it stops because I have hit a dead area on the road. That's why I am asking about any fixes for the actual radio in the car.

Find a longer antenna, with more gain, than the one that threads onto our modular antenna port on the roof. You're probably looking at a 24" whip up there, but you could swap it on an off. Plus it would look even more like an RC car!
