[DML] Re: Terrible AM reception...

I would check the antennae where it connects to the body. The antennae
body MUST be grounded well or it will not work properly. You could
also have a bad connection on the lead-in wire. Make sure the plugs
are firmly inserted all the way together for the extension wire. AM is
not so great long-range which is why they have to use such high power.
Since it is very ineffiecint and prone to static you can see why FM
was (and is) more popular. Of course under the right conditions with
"skip" you can receive AM stations from around the world! Terrible for
mobile receivers though. The radio you have is also a very old kind of
radio, the newer ones are much better at getting weak signals. It is
possible you have a problem with the AM section of the radio. Although
it can be fixed it may not be worth the expense. If you have the Craig
radio I think it has a Local-DX button. Try both positions and make
sure the radio has full battery voltage, it will act wierd if it doesn't.
