You need to make sure that your antenna is fully extended. You also need to drive away from power lines.

There are a few possible causes. If the static changes with engine revs then you have a suppression issue. If the noise is general regardless of whether the engine is running then you need to look at the antenna or the radio itself. Ignition noise will typically produce a "tic, tic, tic" sound on the radio and is likely to be due to arcing around the HT leads or distibutor. The alternator can produce a whining noise if the suppressor is bad. The antenna can perform badly if it is damaged or if its earth connection to the car bodywork does not make a good electrical contact. If you think it might be your radio try substituting another.

it may ,you should change to a different channel on the cordless if it has this option
