Default why does my radio suck?

I want to know why my radio barely picks up anything I'm tired of driving down the road and it constantly fades in and out

My radio sucks too, but I think it's just the connection from the antenna to the radio. It seems to get quite fuzzy when going over rough terrain.. may just be coincidental though..

My radio works just fine. It may just be a connection issue or anything manufactured isn't guaranteed to last forever, so it may need replacing.

If you have HIDS and they aren't digital ballast you will get static on the radio if you are farther away from the stations, or at least I do and so does my buddy in his car.
