If you can't get your radio to locate local stations, you may need a new Hummer
antenna. An antenna in poor condition cannot receive radio waves as effectively
as it once had. One sure sign that your antenna has gone bad is excessive sounds
of static on the few radio stations, if any, that you're able to pick up. Not
having access to local radio stations is not only frustrating; it can also be
dangerous. Think about it: no radio reception means limited to no access to traffic
updates or weather reports. If this is the case, you would be completely unaware
of flash flood warnings in your area and traffic jams on your regular route to
work. At the very least, you would cause yourself some unnecessary aggravation;
at the most, you could potentially put yourself or your family in harms way.
Don't wait until it's too late to replace a broken antenna. The information supplied
by your local stations could prove to be invaluable someday.
