    I recently replaced my factory radio with an Android Double Din radio.

    My only complaint is poor FM reception. I have a cheap radio in my tractor with just a piece of wire for an antenna and it gets better reception than my fancy new one.

    Has anyone used those cheap FM antenna signal boosters?

    TIA

    Many vehicles have an antenna amplifier built in, and you may not have reconnected the power to it when you installed the aftermarket radio.

    Typically its a blue wire....

    I looked. 2002 F250. No blue wire. All wires accounted for. ☹️

  4. Break out the foil hat. Actually I put one in my Jeep, cheap eBay one because I cut the stock antenna down because it would fling all around when off road. It was the best $6 I've spent on that thing besides gas.
