Radio signal terrible

I have a Grande Punto and the radio signal is terrible, always fading in and out, does my head in. Any suggestions?

Mines the same, I have a short aerial fitted so assume it's that. Looks good though

This is what I used when I installed my aftermarket headunit and stubby aerial.

Re: Radio signal terrible

My radio signal has gone worse after I put an aftermarket HU in. Still bearable though.

Re: Radio signal terrible

I havn't replaced the radio, it is the original Blaupunkt cd radio, so after 2006 it should have this booster as standard?
