    Hi Beanstck
    It helps to know base vehicle
    If Fiat based its a known problem and the usual cure is to fit a small rubber wing mounted arial (rubber duck)

    The radio drives me mad in our Autocruise as it keeps switching itself off after 20 minutes. :Angry:

    In most Fiats the aerial is in the wing mirror and the reception is terrible in all but the very strong signal areas. A stick-on windscreen aerial might help, I just put a cheap halfords stubby whip job on the wing, it worked a treat.

    Or do what I did and buy a proper radio! (The standard unit is cr*p!)

    I discovered my Castaway had no aerial at all, just a bit of wire in the door pillar! Fairly useless!
    I fitted a Halfords 'Rubber Ducky ' type and it's fine now.

    Just to add
    An expensive quality radio deserves a quality arial
    a cheap radio needs one
