    Hi - I hope this is the right place to post?

    I have recently been having difficulty receiving a radio signal in my car. Apparently what seems to be happening is the signal is breaking up as the aerial moves around in the wind/ bumpy road. I have unscrewed aerial and re-tightened as well as checking connection at back of radio. All to no avail. Any advice gratefully received.

    Thanks :)

    It could be a broken cable which is making intermittent contact as your ariel whips in the wind. This should be replaceable, but might involve removing the head lining.
