Static radio

Hey everyone just curious as to my radio. I have a 07 300c and my radio has a ton of static on almost every station. I know it's not te station because noone else has the problem and my old car never had issues with the station being static. Just curious if anyone else has this issue and how to resolve it without having to replace the rear windshield where the antenna is.

Can we assume that you are talking AM radio stations?
If so, do you have a metallic window tint installed on the rear window?
If so the metal interfers with the signal as the AM antenna is in the glass.

You might want to try a signal booster. Some plug in right at the antenna cable in the back.

is there anyway i can buy a aftermarket antenna, like a shark antenna or something and redirect the signal to that instead of the rear windshield?
