Full Version: 6000CD MW interference ? Bloody annoying !

Hello
Sorry if this has been covered before but i'm a Newbie.

I have just got a 05 Focus Zetec. It has a Ford 6000 CD Stereo in it.
My problem is this. When i listen to MW, there is background interference like an old radio would give you (Buzzing, crackling etc).
It gets worse when i am revving the engine or driving along (as i speed up, the noises get louder) !

I have read that this stereo has a signal booster? Is this true and if so, where is it ?
Or could it simply be the aerial (which seems glued on tight) ?

If i need to remove the stereo to sort these annoying noise's, i do have the 4 Removal keys.
By the way, FM is fine.

Any advice would be most welcome.
Thanks Danny.

Isn't that just a description of MW in general, especially in cars? Every car I've owned has never had a good MW reception :-(

Yes this is true of MW but in my old 1998 Escort with an older 6000cd in the reception was much clearer.
I listen to MW for the Football coverage (Radio 5 & Talksport).

It is just so crackerly now and i was hoping to improve it ?

Is there a Signal Booster ?

Anyone ?

Thanks.
