I had a similar problem a year or so back and apparently I drug off the AM/FM antenna running down the winding low overhang roads back in the woods. Once I got a new antenna back in place all is well. I added the bend over spring on the the new install. Hopefully the antenna will lay over the next time and spring back up when clear of the low tree branches.
