Hi when I use my radio on mw I get poor signal with a little back ground hiss when the car is switched off. When the car is running the I get very bad interference seams related to engine speed.

Can anyone help?

The Medium Wave is a lot weaker than the FM range, the electrical interference caused by all the electrical systems then causes a bubble which  deflects the signals away more strongly.
