FM AM radios


Recommended Posts

Two questions:

1) What are people using for an antenna ?

2) Are the marine radios (like Fusion,GME) better than a car system? In terms of sensitively etc.

 

Currently have a car system but reception is very poor.

My FM/AM Fusion runs thru the VHF antenna.

Fusion as I needed some customisation and they are in Northcote. But also is it is a more waterproofed version.

I would be very cautious with splitters- I have seen two first hand that degrade the vhf transmission significantly.   Both were very near new- and a popular nz brand

 I would rather have a second aerial and know the vhf is going to work properly.

Vhf antenna with a basic splitter. 

Just using a cheap as 4 speaker Supercheap Auto stereo. 

Maybe try connecting your vhf antenna cable directly to the stereo?  If that works replace your splitter.

I use the VHF aerial at the top of the mast with a Vesper splitter.  This deals with AIS/VHF/AMFM.  Works like a charm.  I did install the recommended aerial from Pacific Aerials.

Ditto for me
