AM Radio Interference

Hi friends,

I know this is a tv site, but I have a problem with my radio antennas and I don't know where else to turn.

I listen to AM radio. I have one in each room of my apartment, and all worked fine till last week, when suddenly they all developed so much static that they're unlistenable. I moved the positions of the radios and their antennas, but that didn't help. I deduced that something changed, but that I was not the cause of it.

I did some research and found that sometimes HD tv's can cause interference with radio reception. Is that true? Perhaps a close neighbor of mine, like upstairs, perhaps, got an HD tv? He's not been around, so I'm not able to ask.

But even if that's what happened, is there anything I can do about it? I ordered one of those round antennas, but it hasn't arrived yet and some reports on the internet said that if the cause of static is interference, then a new antenna won't help.

Does anyone have any information or advice for me? Thanks.
