What kind of antenna do you have, and how is it connected ? I have usually
found I should check the antenna connection first in such cases. If there is
any break in it, you may need to replace that if it is outdoors. Sometimes
the stations are extremely punctual about signing off, but if they are
coming back it may mean they are having trouble with their transmitter, or
that your radio has a bad connection somewhere. If you are using batteries,
check the connections their. If there is any rust or corrosion, clean that
off until you have good metal and replace the batteries. I can't really
think of anything else that might explain what you are hearing. However,
there are others here who have a lot more expertise than me <s>. Best
