Hello and Welcome to justanswer..

The usual problem with this is at the base of the aerial - poor connection of the wire to it and / or poor connection of the aerial base to the roof - where it gets its earth from...

So that needs to be checked out and any such issues rectified..

Too - I have also known bad connections into the rear of teh radio ( aerial ) and too sometimes - earthing the radio itself -(an extra earth ) helps..

You can on occasion have a faulty radio - and it may be.... but check the above first before condemning the unit itself..

I Sincerely XXXXX XXXXX have helped you - Please ask me if you need more help...


Kind Rgds, MIKE
