    Poor AM Reception

    Hey up! I've just recently purchased an Astra Convertible 2003 model, which is fitted with the CCR 600 Tape Unit/CD Multichanger.

    The problem I am having is receiving reception on AM stations. On 1089 (TalkSport) i can hear what is being said, but it is drowned out by really terrible feedback/reception issues. As silly as this sounds, it sometimes gets worse depending on how far i turn the steering wheel!!

    I'm not terribly technically minded, but does anyone know of a quick fix before I take it to the garage to be looked at? For info, the FM stations seem to work OK.

    Cheers

    Welcome mate

    I suspect this is down to the aerial booster thats built into the base of the aerial. It's there mainly for am reception. Repacing the base shouls cure the problem

    as above really unless the supreser (sp) is up the spout but would think that it would "buzz" all the time if it was knackerd i only say this as its electic power steering on the astras maybe that would interfear with the signal
