Poor Radio Reception

Hello all,
Got the standard clarion set up in the GTV but can only get one radio station!

The aerial goes up and down, I pulled the carpet in the boot back and all looks ok, but it doesnt make any difference if the aerial cable is coneected to the loom or not.

I cant see how the aerial cant be working if everythings connected and yet as i say I can only receive one local station regardless of whether the aerial is plugged into the headunit or not.

Is this another 'feature' of my car or has something within the aerial failed?

Re: Poor Radio Reception

Radio should work ok. Easy way to check, unplug the lead from the aerial and attach a wire coat hanger, if you can get more stations you will know that its the connection to the mast that is broken. Its an easy job to put another aerial in if its broken. If that doesnt work try testing the continuity between the head unit and aerial and if that's ok try another head unit!!
