Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

If you are sure the antenna is okay and not causing the problem and you have good power and ground to the unit then the problem is likely in the radio. Do you get the same problem to occur on the AM side?
