Try it on the other side of that store, next time you're in the area.

The point would be to determine if it is something in the building which is blocking reception.
The fix is to move until you can find a good signal. And to be the Gray Man while doing that...

I had pocket AM/FM radio which would not receive FM when I went inside one of our casinos, AM still worked, but that is generally from a higher power transmitter and/or a closer transmitter.

i learned something new about the charger.
i had noticed a white panel on the back side of it.but didn't know what it's for until this morning.
It's a flashlight. There's a button on one side.push n hold it in while it's charging. It'll shut off and stop charging.

but push it twice.the flash light comes on.push it once and it'll start flashing...

i just had a good idea.the sun is in the east.and sets in the west.but yet its to the south from day break to sun set.my bathroom window face's south.so i took the radio and charger in there and placed them onto the window seal.i noticed the recharge light right away on the radio.i picked up the charger and turned it around. Light's are lit up.so the solar panels are working on both.now it's a matter of waiting a lil while. then go check on them.

That is probably the best place to store the radio. At least I don't think it could hurt!

on each side are the cell phone chagers and radio in the middle.i did a lil test with the chargers.i took the one charger on the right,in which it don't have a solar panel.pluged it into the solar charger just to see if it'll recharge the non solar charger.it will and does.i also tried pkuging it into the radio.that didn't work.i'm assuming it has to be pluged in just right to work.
