[Fwd: A6 AM Radio Reception Improvement]

My '93 90S has the antenna in the rear window. All those wires
across your rear window aren't the defroster grid. The top 4 or
5 wires are your antenna. Mine seems to be a little lacking in
some frequencies. Techamerica sells a FM/AM radio booster
electronics kit, I'm considering ordering two, since my radio
has seperate AM and FM antennas, and seeing if that helps.


You can get a free catalog.
