Mason jar radio

I got the idea of putting an AM/FM radio into a Mason jar after a friend told me about this Kickstarter: The Public Radio. I thought it was a little overpriced, and way under-featured. It comes hard-programmed to just a single station.

So I took upon the challenge of breaking down a normal $12 radio, mounting the contents onto a lid of a Mason jar, and rewiring everything to keep it fully functional.

I made it for my friend who told me about the Kickstarter. She was about to pledge until I told her I could make one better...haha

Hello, I've done the same myself, but the radio keeps crackling and changing station especially when I approach it or touch it... Do you have any idea where it could come from ?
I used a cheap radio that had a "scan" button
