VM-650 and FM Radio Reception Issues

Recently bought the VM-650 and was initially happy with it, but I am finding that the FM radio reception will work for a bit on a station setting then start to hiss intermittently then with increasing regularity. Very annoying. When I try another setting with either automatic (press and hold volume up) or manual approach, it continues to happen after briefly functioning fine.  Is there anything I can do to improve and sustain a stable FM reception with this device?

Re: VM-650 and FM Radio Reception Issues

it all depends on how many radio stations are in the area using your frequency.

 

You have to find one that is not being used, which isnt easy in places like Big Cities Los Angelas

 

I only have one available in my area that allows me to use it in a 30 mile radius.

I appreciate the effort, but I don't think it has anything to do with available radio frequency.  I've changed the frequency a number of times and the problem continues to surface.

have you tried to plug in the car charger while using it?

 

my old truck would make the sound a bit funny unless it was plugged in
