    The dealer fitted a JVC radio to our Fiat based van using the mirror? aerial - it only worked in very good reception areas and quickly became static when moving.

    Dealer and Fiat dealer said aerial fine so motorhome dealer fitted a digital (dealer decription) aerial onto the windscreen - reception improved but radio will only pick up very strong signals.

    Anybody got any ideas/cures so that we can listen to radio on the move?

    Hi Dave, a lot of people end up fitting a Halfords stubby ariel. It means drilling, but the reception is much, much better.
