    stock deck has terrible reception!

    Alright I don't know if I just got a fluke stereo but this thing has TERRIBLE reception. It pulls in maybe half the stations of the stock unit in my chevy pickup! Anyone else? Anyone have any luck with an aftermarket antenna, maybe an amplified one? Many thanks - kd

    My radio works great, maybe yours is defective. Head to the nearest dealership and check the recption in a another car.

    BTW, you did remember to extend the antenna

    This morning I still wasn't sure if I'm an idiot. Now I'm sure. If I have any defense I think the salesman should have pointed that out. I've never had to manually extend an antenna before. Thanks guys - krautdog
