Any HD radio upgrade success stories?
My '95 ZJ still has factory AM/FM radio (pre CD's).
I am not that much into music, but the FM still comes in fine enough for me. It is the AM reception that is bad and getting worse, and it is not the radio or car's fault. All my portable radio's have the same fate.
My problem is that despite being 10 miles from Los Angeles, I can get no AM stations at night and much static on AM during the day.
Between increased Edison high tension power lines, more night time AM radio static and being close to some mountains, I get only intense static at night on AM, some daytime reception with static and some areas I drive through with total static during daytime - and it is getting worse.
I am frequently driving evenings and want to get the AM sports stations. My teams do not broadcast on XM or satellite, so that does not help.
I have taken steps of upgrading my antenna, using shielded wiring in car and a filter on the antenna cable
A few people tell me that HD radio upgrade would help me to get better AM - has anyone found this to be true? Does the HD radio bring in all stations better, or is it just radio stations that broadcast in HD?
Thanks for any advice
