it is just static but its pretty annoying... usually its just caused y two things... the power supply wire that turns on the radio or loose connection from the radio to the antenna...

Honestly it would be very hard to tell from here, but i will say that if you have checked all the connections to and from the radio, the last thing i would try before blaming the radio would be to disconnect the one power feed wire from the alternator and the one wiring harness going into the alternator, sometimes an alternator with a bad diode can cause annoying radio static. If it goes away you found your issue, if not, it could be the radio, a coil pack, deeper wiring issues etc. i would just try the connections to the radio and then disconnect the alternator (of course promptly reconnect when done with the test or the battery will die). Good luck!
