VERY poor Radio reception?

I must admit that I did install an FM modulator two years ago and have listened to Sirius radio almost exclusively. Went riding without the Sirius module last night and tried to get weather band, AM, and then FM radio to keep track of bad storms in the area. Bottom line is that all the radio reception has dwindled to nothing. Any ideas? Thanks

If the FM modulator is in-line, perhaps the good times radio antenna connection is slightly dislodged from it?

Checked that out and then traced the antenna lead back to the antenna mount. Found the problem. The little spring at the end of the antenna mast down in the clamp was not touching the little terminal. I stretched the spring and reinserted down in the hole. BINGO!!!!!!
