I need help ... my receiver does NOT pick up AM radio at all

have you tried connecting a external antenna on the rear where it says "AM" not sure if this receiver has a internal AM antenna

thanks ... now I just need to find that antenna

an antenna can be a commercially built antenna or you can use a piece of wire connected to the am antenna connection, at one time I got great results using a clip lead clipped on to an aluminum window frame, am antennas are usually directional.

FYI, I have two of these beasts. One for parts and the other to use when I need to hear a great Sansui sound. I do not have an extra power transformer as the parts machine came without it. I have all the knobs except for the attenuator knob on the far left.
