I have a DUAL XDM6820 and sometimes I don't have AM/FM reception. When it's working, I get all the stations fine. But when it's not working I don't get any stations. Any help will be appreciated.

SOURCE: FM reception for Sony ICF-CD513?

The electrical cord acts as an antennae for this radio. Uncoiling the cord will give the best reception for FM. Rotating the radio (and built in ferrite bar antennae) will give the best reception for AM listening.

Fm reception for weak stations poor. reception on car radio fine.


If there is no FM Antenna connection you can try to move the power cord to different positions and see if you get a better signal. If not then move the unit closer to a window or try various locations that might have better reception.

Fm radio works fine but the dab will not find any stations, I have tried different aerials and still no good


What's the make & model of the radio?
Most DAB/FM radios work from the same antenna, so if you receive FM stations, you should receive DAB stations in your area.
It should be noted that DAB transmitters work on lower power than conventional FM transmitters, and so you may be in a weak reception area (for DAB). It should also be noted that DAB uses different frequencies than regular FM stations and household appliances such as laptops,WiFi, microwave ovens, etc can affect DAb reception.

I can't get the AM radio to find a signal. All other components work fine.


Hello
If you get FM radio stations, and only AM reception is immpossible, check whether AM loop antenna has connected to the respective poles at the back side. If it is connected, and still you do not get the Amplitude Modulation [AM] signals, check the input settings of the device is correct to recive AM. There will be a slelection option, for AM & FM. OK.

Dual xhd6425 Reception Problems


My XHD6425 seems to be very inconsistent... Sometimes I get okay reception, other times I get terrible reception (much worse than my original stock Ford radio). The reception problems are more noticeable on stations that are more than 30 miles away or so.
Perhaps oddest of all, I've sometimes had it bounce back and forth between two stations (like if you are driving and in the middle of nowhere, half way between two stations), even in areas where I know should be getting good reception on one station and had never heard of the other other station before.
If you've figured anything out, please let me know.

You may have a bad antenna or antenna cable.
FM signals are measured in microvolts and are easily influenced by poor antennas or a mashed antenna cable.

SL100 static and bad FM reception


I have noticed various changes in my invehicle FM reception as well. There should be a external antenna that came with your car kit. This is precisely for these types of issues. It is designed to run along the windshield inside the car closest to the Cars radio antenna. It should plugin to the bottom of the cradle. Then tune it into a clean FM station (one that has no local station on it) and position the cradle and/or ext. antenna till you get the best reception in your vehicle. It could very well be that the antenna has come has loose on your car stereo backplane. You would probably notice decreased reception on regular AM/FM stations as well though.
Your wifi reception/functionality is a completely different animal and has no bearing on the FM transmitter in the car cradle. When your on wifi your not receiving signal from a sat. anymore just simply streaming internet audio like your computer.
Good luck.
