Just wondering if anyone has this issue too or not? Well now that I'm in rural area of VA, radio reception isn't the best. But I especially know that when I'm in reverse I basically lose all reception (just get static).

The obvious joke would be to not do that... But that's a pretty strange thing to have happen, maybe the trans working in the opposite direction throws off some odd RFI harmonics that affect the already weak radio signals?

My old Benz wagon had poor reception and I'm in a metro area, maybe the antenna connections are grungey and using reverse is just coincidental? Do you have a DX setting on the radio?

I believe there is DX setting. Would that help?

Absolutely, DX is radio lingo for distant reception.

I'm curious why there would be some interference when in reverse. You might check that your transmission is properly electrically grounded to the chassis.

I'm in Oakwood, VA (coal country). It's a manual, so how would I be able to check the ground for the manual transmission?

Use a multimeter and check the resistance from the transmission housing to your negative battery terminal or a piece of hardware on the car's body.

Matt, that is really odd. I researched online and I found an Impreza owner having that issue, but... it was caused by LED reverse lights.

Here's the thread:

Mitch, I was thinking of the reverse LED too from what I found on the web. I did change out to reverse LED bulbs like a year ago and it's been going on since then. I'm also gonna look to make sure everything is grounded in the engine as well.

I still love my reverse LEDs and won't take them out, it's just a weird thing to have the radio cut out and when I'm backing up. It's basically made me try to avoid going in reverse.

It's probably a funky grounding thing. If I'm trying to listen to a game on AM radio I usually get less static if I'm pressing the brake pedal.
