if the TV is a newer digital model, installing a regular antenna should give you local stations to watch.

I have 2 cobras 29 radio always worked good till recently. Have a rk56 mic I can hear but can't talk. Mic keys up but they hear nothing bought a new 29 chrome digital read out and a new mic just a wood power mic. The light on the mic doesn't come on same thing keys up but no one can hear me. Swrs are good everything set good on the radii the new radio is not tuned yet but old one is. I have a 14 freightliner w/ the built in antennas on the roof could that be it. Thx jerseygrl


fiberglass,no ground plane. Did you use the meters on the radios to match your antennas or a seperate external antenna.you might have to run your own coax and hook up a mirror mount bracket and put your favorite antennas on them then match them and ground them to the chassis use common sense to show you what to do next and you should be getting out great. Sometimes people change the antennas on those trucks with built in antennas and don't realize that the coax has just fallen out of site into the body somewhere. thats why I said install your own.

what type of antenna do you reccomend cant get the tv to work at all no picture no sound not using cable no antenna tried auto PLEASE ADVISE!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Lets get started. First the TV you have does not have the new ATSC digital tuner built in. It uses the old NTSC tuner. You might find a few stations, however most major networks have gone Digital because the maximum power for NTSC is limited to 1000 watts. ATSC is the new digital standard for broadcasting both High Definition programs as well as standard definitions programs. So you will need a Digital converter box. They sell them at Radio Shack for around $60. You can get one on ebay for around $25. You will also need and antenna. A good old set of rabbit ears will work fine if you not to far (less than 25 miles) from the transmission towers. If your out in a rural area (greater than 25 miles from the tower) you may want to consider and outdoor antenna. Antennas Direct is a great source for antennas.

You can also get help estimating what kind of antenna you need at this web site:

However you may want to consider buying a new TV which will have a new ATSC tuner built in. You will still need and antenna.
Hope this helps.
