Technician's Assistant: What's the make/model number of your stereo? How old is it?

Ten years old (I think)

Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble, but I'll do my best to help you. Please give me a few moments to review your details here.

As an initial step, can you try relocating or even just rotating the radio. The antenna on this is actually built into the power cord, so if you can plutg to a differnet outlet or move the cord around a bit it may get better reception. If that doesn't help let me know and we can look at some external antenna options next.
