Talking FORUM HAS CREATED A MONSTER!

And, I'm not talking just on Halloween past!

Over the years, I have been skeptical about breaking into the Cruiser in areas where I have no business. (Limited wrenching skills)

But, from Candyman to the guys on the tech forum, you guys are worth you weight in posting Gold!!!!

After looking at the "How To's" stickies, yesterday, I broke into the steering column to install a louder turn signal flasher. (OK!...no big deal! But, now I can hear it!)

Today, I resolved to uninstall the previous owner's aftermarket Satellite Radio system, tracing all the wires to see if this was affecting my AM radio (not working, and I had posted on the tech forum). So, I watched the videos and read the posts on uninstalling the center bezel, etc.


BINGO!
Boy, where there a lot of wires and connectors for that thing!
One of the things that they had done was use a cable splitter and signal booster in line with the antenna cable.
When I unplugged the line splitter-connector, and plugged the original antenna cable into the back of the radio....
AM RADIO NOW WORKS!!!!


Man, I love all you guys who share the "How Tos"!
YOU ROCK!!!

There's nobody on AM radio except Arthur Godfrey and the Grand Ole Opry.

You do know you are welcome anywhere you want on here. Many with little or no experience participate all the time. Lot to learn just hanging out. I have learned tons of stuff that way.

Well, up here we have 1450 AM, a home grown, comedy radio station.
I listen to the 'Happy you're here hour', Jerry.

Hey Mr. Frank,

Love to do it, and thank you for your kind words Sir. Very much appreciated.

If I remember right, I think I used to pick up A Prairie Home Companion on AM in some places up around Nebraska, Iowa area. Used to really love that show when I was on the truck.

Cool Re: FORUM HAS CREATED A MONSTER!

Candyman,
The Prairie is on our local classical (NPR) station on weekends.
They have several weekends shows that are very enjoyable.
But, I hate their news slants....NPRBS!
Good stuff!
