Looking for tips on how to get better reception on your radio?
The best thing you can do is to add an antenna to your radio, or experiment with its location if you already have one. Sometimes moving it just a few feet, or turning it in a different direction, will make a difference. They work best when fully extended. Read more about radio reception and HD radio here.
