JL MM50 Problems

We purchased a new 2022 25FB FC and took possession of the trailer in late Dec. Since that time the radio would not pick up any AM or FM stations/signals. In trying to solve the problem I took all the cabling out from behind the Antenna power switch and took each RG6 cable connection apart and found the cable leading from the splitter to the radio had the signal pin bent over. Fixed that which brought back good FM reception AM signal at all. Tried with and without power to the Antenna but made no difference. Then found the maker of the Omni Antenna (Majestic US) and called them and talked to an engineer. He proceeded to tell me that with the way the Antenna works to boost UHF/VHF (basically TV and FM) it clips the AM signal. This a very profound statement, so any radio used with this Antenna is essentially a FM radio not an AM/FM radio. They sell the standard wip antenna's which support TV/AM/FM but of course with limited signal strength for TV/FM.

I'm glad you found your problem. There are countess complaints involving the AS antenna set up getting poor fm signals and no am signal at all. You and the antenna rep answered a lot of questions.
