hi the radio in my 2010 Qashqai initially would lose sound ,then when it came back the volume would be low,then the actual reception got worse and worse to a point of being almost inaudible.
I have changed the radio(second hand from breakers) changed the aerial and the base, cleaned the roof to ensure a good earth, I have removed and cleaned the fuse, and still have terrible reception.
I have run of of ideas as to the cause ,any thoughts guys ?

Welcome to this forum.

Haven't a clue, unless the second radio has the same issue as the original.

There is a VHF Amplifier in the base of the Antenna on the roof. Does it work? It is powered from the headunit automatically.
