        Reply to:   RE>Radio Questions


i have some answers for you, learned the hard way.

>     But the radio is marginal. Acts like it has no attenna, but it looks
     like the car has two - one mounted rear center at about a
     45 degree angle, the other internally in the windshield.

yes, and they automatically switch to pull the best available signal BUT - the
little whip in the back has an amplifier hooked up to it that burns out easily
and is a complete bear to replace - usually buried inside the C-pillar behind
all sorts of trim.  my old 90 coupe q had that same problem.

>     Also, no radio manual. Yeah, we figured out how to set the
     preselects, and that DX = increased sensitivity ( not enough,

the dx switch operates differently than most - it affects the scan feature
only.  when you're in dx mode, the scan will stop at more stations.

> But what is the ARI-Z button? It does not seem to have
     any effect on the increased sensitivity for cowboy music... but
     seriously, what does this button do?

it's for some wierd german traffic info (on a subcarrier) system.  useless in
the usa.

>  Thanks

any time.
