Very poor radio reception

I have a 3050s with the fender antenna and I get horrible reception. Is there a alternative to replace the antenna? Add one on the roof would seem logical but a impossible to imagine how to wire? Any thoughts?

I have a 2014 and the radio is the same. The biggest problem is constant scanning. I very seldom use it. I'm not sure what I'm going to do either. I think some of the problem is the front overhead. Also I don't want just anyone drilling a hole in the roof for the antenna.

Are you talking of the dashboard radio or an I house radio? I was surprised when I went on the roof of my class C and found a radio antenna for the house radio inside.

Meant to say the antenna was laying down so you couldn't see it from ground level.

Yes dashboard radio. I thought there was a roof antenna but with the poor reception I doubt it is attached to dash

Check settings. Make sure traffic notification is turned off.

I think the antenna you saw lying down is for your outside radio. Mine was.

That would explain a lot. There could be a way to add a splitter and run to the cab radio.

Are you referring to AM or FM reception? Class Cs are notorious for poor AM reception due to the cab-over blocking AM reception. I had FR put the antenna on the roof for me. I got the idea from the fact FR puts the Solaris antennas on the roof.
