Default 2002 NB TDi Radio/Antenna Problem?

On my tdi I have the regular monsoon radio, when I try to use lower frequency stations, ie 90.0 and lower, I get mostly a buzzing noise. The noise, if you've heard it, is kind of like what happeneds when you are next to a semi with a high strength CB radio.

Off the top of my head, you need a new antenna; it sounds like antenna/radio does not have a good ground.
