I really love my Rover. One exception is that the radio - especially on AM - does not bring in the stations I like. None of the stations are really strong and completely free of static. FM gets a few more stations a little better. It seems like either the antenna doesn't have a good connection or maybe it doesn't have ignition noise suppression. I'm guessing that the antenna is actually the windshield heater. But looking at the radio and the dashboard, I am not sure where to start. Here's hoping someone here has a good idea where I should start. tia. bob

Antennas are in the back, the FM is in the rear upper tailgate, and the AM is in the left side rear quarter window. No antennas in the front of the vehicle, just the windsheild heater elements in the front windscreen.

Thanks Marc. That's helpful.

You mean AM is still around? I thought went out with the 8 track.

I guess I haven't tried an "Apple device". It might kick butt OK. But I do like to listen to traffic and talk programs. They seem to be the best on AM.

I reseated the connections to the various boxes behind the panel in the left rear. The AM reception got way better.

Try the FM with the rear window defogger on. Mine goes completely to hell when I do that. I suspect a rust ground connection for the heater elements, but I listen the the satellite radio 100% of the time anyway so it doesn't bother me that much.
