KENWOOD TS 430 S Fuzzy audio on AM

I have a Kenwood TS 430 s that I talk on daily and today out of the blue I started getting reports of fuzzy audio. I thought for sure it was something with the mic but I checked it on another radio and it sounded good. I put the mic back on the Kenwood and checked it with while listening on a yaesu and it was fuzzy on AM but not on side band. Any input is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Ham radio operators (VHF/UHF) should pay attention to enhanced radio propagation paths throughout the middle latitudes and equatorial region, a common occurrence following such events. :coffee: (y)

    Had "Aurora" propagation on CW/SSB on 6m last evening. (300-700m range here) The 2m guys had lots of Ducting/TROPO between the East Coast and Gulf Coast op's, even early today.
