How well you can hear 99.5 FM in Mesa/Scottsdale depends on your car radio and sometimes the direction you are driving. Many aftermarket radios don't have as good of reception as factory radios and some aftermarket radios are really bad at picking up FM signals. If FM radio is important to you, you want a factory radio with a roof or side antenna or an aftermarket radio with a FM sensitivity around 7dbf. When comparing 7dbf to 14dbf, 7 dbf is much better at picking up distant or low power FM radio stations. The lower the dbf number, the better.
We have tested our signal in 4 vehicles. The best signal was from a 2020 Hyundai Elantra. The other 3 were a 08 Honda Civic (factory radio), 94 Honda Accord (aftermarket radio with 7.2dbf), and a 97 Jeep Wrangler with a factory radio. The results are...
The 2020 Hyundai Elantra performed the best. The 97 Jeep Wrangler came in second and the 08 Honda Civic 3rd. Last place was the aftermarket radio in the 94 Honda Accord, however, it came really close to matching the 08 Honda Civic.
Factory radios are usually best with a roof or side mount antenna. The window antennas usually aren't very good. For most cars our signal is best when driving East.
