| The Kenwood radio in the '04 has a real problem with fringe AM

| a huge amount of noise on weak AM stations, but almost none if
I have a

| like it has similar issues.
You mean Hyundai is selling Kenwood stereos as OE? That's like
carrying coals to Newcastle; Hyundai not only makes their own car
stereos, but sure looks to me like they are offering them as OE
to other car makers! Check it out:
I wonder if they, in fact, make this Kenwood under license, in
the same way that Radio Shack sells "RCA" products (RCA is
deader-than-dead -- the trademark was sold by GE to Thomson
[France]) 20 years ago.
