Mine did the same, so I searched this forum and found that my antenna booster on the right side windshield pillar was not properly grounded, so I took off the cover, removed the screw holding the booster, sanded the paint off, then reattached, and now I have great reception.

This is a link to a post that shows the booster attached to the pillar.
The pillar is easy to remove.
Hope this works for you.
