Re: Radio Reception
Ditto. The 156 reception is 5hite with the original stereo.
My first radio which was the Alpine Alfa unit used to jump stations. VERY annoying when your singing along to your favourite tunes. I ended up replacing it, as I thought it was faulty, with a Blaupunkt Los Angeles MP72. The reception on that was great and had no problems with the weak signal from the aerial. As I'm selling my car I sold the Blaupunkt and replaced it with an original I bought from ebay. Its worked fine for about a month and just recently started jumping stations again. I've disconnected the power, put it back in and its working ok again. I can only conclude that the reception on the original Alfa head unit is rubbish.
I don't know if there are any signal boosters out there that you could fit, but it may be worth a try before drilling holes to install a bee sting aerial. Or buy a more modern head unit with a stronger reception.
