Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Thank you for the reply. Maybe I need to clarify a little. I can receive AM stations, the closer I am to the station, then the reception drops off as I get farther away from the radio station. Does this sound like an antenna issue or other hardware like you suggest?

Thanks again...
