No radio reception

The antenna is connected to the radio on my 1998 Excella but there is no reception. Is there a way to test whether or not the radio is getting a signal from the antenna?

The only way would be to put either a different antenna on the radio or a different radio on the antenna. Your choice.

My 2001 with the Sony would hardly get anything until I pulled up the antenna. It easily pulled up one section but it looked like it should be longer. Pulling on it with some pliers after a wd40 soak got it full length. Works great now. Make sure yours is pulled up.

Thanks, I'll see if the antenna is completely extended.
