Would it be possible to tune the radio's antenna poor reception for 2002 XG350L where is the antenna?
I believe I read somewhere that the XG350/L antenna was embedded in the windsheild. Some aftermarket head units can boost the signal quality better than the stock radio, or there are "antenna boosters" that install on the antenna cable and are 12 VDC powered. I haven't tried a separate booster, so I don't know how well, or if they work. I've had the best luck in other vehicles installing Pioneer head units with the "Super Tuner" tuners. [Revision:06/28/08] After looking through some documentation, the antenna is embedded in the rear window (not the front windshield) and there is a built-in/factory antenna booster mounted to the underside of the rear shelf (where the speakers mount.) I've seen at least one other person who had to replace the booster due to poor reception.
C Crane Radio company has built a AM radio which had out performed all AM band radios on the market.The CC Radio Plus has a specially tuned audio amplifier to the human voice.Also the radio coupled with there twin coil ferrite antenna offers the best possiable reception of any AM radio.This antenna will pull in weak station and night time station that fade out and will double day time reception.
You can't get am reception on your Saab 900 se you have changed the antenna 3 times but it does not help is there a way to tune or adjust the radio?
On older radios there was a "trim" adjustment. Don't know if newer ones still have this. At the rear of the radio next to where the antenna plugs in is a little screw Set the radio to a weaker station around 1400 and adjust this screw until radio reception is best at this location and that should allow other stations to come in. Good luck
Better reception there.
Reception is rubbish
That's generally because the `front end' of the receiver is designed to be more sensitive than home receivers. This is mainly because the unit is almost always under varying conditions and with a higher sensitivity, it's able to provide a cleaner, more solid reception. This is partly due to the short length of the antenna that cars have and also because designers have responded to customer's complaints over the years that the car radios weren't… Read More

Signal interference, blocked signal, antenna problems or electrical faults.
Antenna balls are purely decorative items. However, they can be branded to serve as advertising, and some people ensure their antenna ball is distinctive to make it easier to find their car in a large parking lot.
An antenna is for radio reception. Some antennas are visible and usually mounted on the front right side fender. Some antennas back in the eighties were used for car telephones and CB radios and were not installed by the factory. Most remote starting features and some burglar alarms also utilize antennas. Some radio antennas were imbedded in the windshield
VHF radios work by the line of sight principle
Antennas are needed to pick up frequency signal waves in the air
mostly communications such as radios and other related units, satellite, antenna, wiring and radar equiment maintainer.
Generally speaking, VHF or UHF radio. VHF is also used to communicate with ground personnel (heli logging, SAR, firefighting, etc). The 'system' consists of a radio, antenna cable, and external antenna. an intermediate antenna switch can be used to allow multiple radios of the same band to use the same external antenna.
Not all radio antennas are vertical. The main reason radio antennas tend to be vertical is convenience of mounting. Many early radio antennas were long horizontal wires strung between two poles or trees. This was also a matter of convenience in mounting such a long antenna (e.g. 50 feet to 100 feet in length). When you are operating radios in the VHF or UHF band a vertical or horizontal mounting of the short antennas used… Read More
They are on the outside in order to boost reception. More reception translates to a longer range, which means you can drive farther away from you. and its way cheaper to make the aerials on the outside than to use a fractal aerial, like in cell phones.
Whichever one you like. Since all CB antennas have 50 ohms impedance and all CB radios expect the antenna to have 50 ohms impedance, there's no problem with matching the radio to the antenna.
on the 2006 models of the ford fusion. the radio antenna is embedded in the back glass with the rear defrosters. It's important to know that when installing aftermarket radio you should connect pin 5 on the radio harness to a switched 12v source. If not done this will cause problems with radio reception! pin 5 is the antenna's booster power wire and was originally powered off of the stock radio but the aftermarket radios… Read More
You get no sound from radio and scans constantly have swapped radios 2 other Taurus and your radio works in other car you get the same results with the swapped radio?
Your antenna lead-in is broken, and the radio isn't getting any signal. That's why it keeps scanning and can't hear anything. Check the connection from the antenna to the cable, and if that's OK, then you'll have to replace the cable from the antenna to the radio. You did connect the antenna to it when you were checking it in the first car, right ? You can quickly test this hypothesis: With a radio in… Read More
In the 1950's, there was analog telephone service, analog television service over an antenna, radios, and electricity. There were also typewriters, instead of computers.
Hi No, walkie-talkies do not need to have visible antennas, although it depends of the operation power in the unit. Some of the low power two way radios (license free) have got hidden antenna (Motorola TLKR T5). In high power radios (commercial - licensed units) signal transmitted from the antenna could interfere with the components inside, if fixed too close to the circuit board, inside the chassis. Antenna exposed outside the radio can easily radiate… Read More
The LM had an antenna array that could beam signals to Earth. When the astronauts were out on EVA, their suits had radios which beamed signals to the LM, which in turn sent the signals to Earth. The LM acted as relay between the Earth and the suit radios.
Yes. This is how radios work.
Why does your car radio receive a station that your home radio will not when their a few feet apart?
In most cases it boils down to the antenna. Most home radios have a a built-in coiled antenna. Other reasons are "gain" issues. this is a slightly more complicated issue, but in short, a car radio is designed to adjust it's "gain" based on the signal strength of a moving source. Home radios are not designed to do this because, well your house doesn't move. However, some older model radios did come with a manual… Read More

AM radios are based on the principle of sound waves being sent through the air. If the AM radio station has static, you may wish to move to a new area where reception is better.
Solar flares cause problems with radio reception. The sun goes through cycles of them. If they get bad enough, we could lose all communications, including GPS and landline phones.
Yes, but not very effectively. VHF and CB radios are on different frequencies and therefore for best efficiency require different length antennas. You might be able to receive with the CB antenna, but transmitting will result in a high SWR and possibly overheat, shutdown, or destroy your VHF radio.
It depends on the antenna and the quality of the CB. Personally, one of mine gets transmissions from the other side of the US, from Illinois to California. I'm only 12, but I LOVE TECHNOLOGY!
A transmit antenna sends radio energy from an electronic circuit into space. A receive antenna captures radio energy from space and connects it to an electronic circuit. Most people own several antennas, for example in transistor radios, mobile phones, keyfobs for locking the car, television satellite dishes or antennas on chimneys.

November 2, 1920 was the first time the radio went to the public. ---------------------- Difficult to answer...it happened in small stages. Marconi in very late 19th century achieved the first transmission and reception. I believe he used a spark-gap transmitter and a coherer receiver. Then Lee DeForest invented the triode tube (1920), and the superhet became possible. Then directly heated tubes appeared, and portable radios became possible. (about 1950) Then the transistor was invented, also… Read More
A department store receives a shipment of 23 new portable radios There are 5 defective radios in the shipment If 4 radios are selected for display What is the probability that 2 of them are defective?
It is possible to choose 4 radios out of 23 in (23 choose 4)=8855 ways. The number of those combinations where there are exactly 2 indefective and 2 defective is: (18 (the number of those indefective) choose 2)*(5 (the number of defective radios) choose 2)=1530 divided by 8855=1530/8855=306/1771 which is 17.2784%.
They are a form of communication giving us entertainment, news and other tidbits of interesting information. Radios also create jobs for people. Radios are useful to hear news broadcast and such you can hear your favoite song or such not questions like these have many possible answers pretty much for the same reasons books are to entertain or inform
What do you need to do to replace the antenna on a 1996 Ford Contour The stereo was stolen and they cut the antenna wire?
To remove antennas' you will have to unscrew the antenna from where it is currently located on the outside of the car. Usually it will have one or two types of nuts holding it in place, you will probably have to open the hood and hold the interior nut with a wrench - pull what is left of the wire through and if you have a new wire you can probably attach it to the… Read More

Most, if not all, of these radio do NOT have an aux input. After market car audio shops will have a device that will plug into the antenna jack so that you can tune in your MP3 player via the radio. This antenna adapter has much better reception than the average FM Transmitter. FM is one idea but the sound quality is not that good, there is nothing better than digital audio directly into the… Read More

Building a radio in 10 minutes. For our 10 minute radio, we will need these parts: A ferrite loop antenna coil In our other crystal radios we wound the coil by hand. In this project we use a much smaller coil with a ferrite rod inside, from our catalog. The ferrite rod allows the coil to be smaller, and it can be moved in and out of the coil for coarse tuning. A variable capacitor… Read More
Get a radio specifically designed to work inside a shower. There are quite a number of these radios around and the best one is from Sangean. It is waterproof, has excellent reception, and produces very clear sound. It can be attached to the wall of the shower enclosure.
They are used in loudspeakers to replicate sounds-coil type. they are also used in coiltype antennas in the base of receivers such as old emersons. this was an adveritisng ploy that the radios had(aerial eliminators) and did not need unsightly or visible antennas. we had an old zenith with base coil antenna. Also coils have a variety of applicaitons in tuning and band spread. Any electrical coil is essentially a form of electro-magnet.
The plural possessive form of radios is radios'
Electricity is possible for us because without Electricity we wouldn't have... TV, Music/Radios, Phones etc.. and really the "SUN" Gives us electricity by the power and energy it has.
Ted Rogers Sr. The first batteryless radios were called crystal radios. In 1874 the German inventor Karl Ferdinand Braun discovered the properties of crystals that made the crystal radio possible. The first crystal radios were developed around 1904 by several inventors, the most prominent being JC Bose of India and GW Pickard of the US.
Then, as now, you paid attention to it since that was where the tuning and volume controls were and the closer you were the easier it was to hear it. Early radios were large, furniture-sized devices operated by vacuum tubes, and signal reception was often interrupted by other stations or by static.
try the antenna that usually plugs into the back of the radio. It is usually the way auto radios are grounded. If there is some corrosion or it's loose, guess what, the radio stops working.
There are many types of emergency radios available. Some of the types of radio available include Ham radio, AM radios, FM radios, CB radios and walkie talkies.
Tivoli makes portable radios, table radios, Internet radios, hi-fi systems, and although all their radios can connect with iPods, they also make special radios specifically designed for optimal iPod integration.
Online, radio shops found in truck stops, Radio Shack, communications specialist stores, sporting goods stores.. it all depends on what kind of two way radios you want. There's handheld CB radios, FMRS radios, GMRS radios, 2 meter ham radios, 75 centimeter ham radios, military surplus handheld radios, etc.
