    Coaxial FM antenna

    Radio Shack has an
    adapter catalog number 278-0291. It takes some effort to push the 278-0291
    adapter onto the FM UNBL 75 ohm terminal so wait until you have the 278-0291
    installed before you connect your 75 ohm coax on to your new adapter.

    This will resolve your FM screw on F connector antenna interface issue.

    I see others trying to
    help suggest using a 300 ohm to 75 ohm transformer match unit, this isn't what is needed. Your receiver antenna input IS a 75
    ohm input.

    Where can i get an antenna?

    The antenna is very simple if you which to keep the cost down and live near the stations you like. A piece of twin lead from Radio Shack about 6 feet long will do the trick. Split one end down the middle about 30" and make into a tee "T" connect the other end to your radio. If you are further away from from your stations, a commercial antenna will produce better reception.

    We are in the basement and the radio dont play, the disk dus play wonderful

    Have you hooked up the supplied Loop antenna to the back of the unit (Looks like a black plastic hoop, with coils of wire around it, and a doublestranded wire coming off it). Most system come with this item. Just put the bared ends of the antenna wire in the proper spots on the rear of the unit.
    Generally having the antenna itself higher up and closer to a window/away from major obstacles will give you the best reception.
    Hope this helps,

    No antenna, no radio reception

    If the model number is SC-AK630, please confirm. The antenna should still be available from any Panasonic part distributor. Please confirm the model and I'll get you the part number and cost.

    Fm Radio signal?

    There was a black wire included (with a metal "cap" to insert in the FM center connector) that served as the FM antenna, but in a pinch any wire can do, preferably about 33" long and with the insulation stripped from the last inch or so (or get creative and sand the last inch of varnish off a properly sized untwisted clothes hanger and gently bend to suit). Bare stranded wire should be twisted or folded until it's thick enough to firmly fit the middle "hole" of the FM antenna connector. Be careful that no strands of wire short to the metal ground "ring" surrounding the hole or the antenna won't work (although it won't burn out your amp like shorting the speaker wires would, it just won't work). Orient the wire horizontally or vertically for best reception. This unit also doesn't pick up FM very well if you're in a steel-framed building or away from windows in the general direction of the local transmitters, so moving the unit closer to a window may help dramatically. In bad reception areas you can get an external FM "rabbit ears" type antenna but you'll need the "European" style of 300 ohm to 75 ohm transformer to plug it into the unit's FM connector (one that has a bigger central connector "plug" than the usual US units). Some cable systems also still support FM, if yours does, a VHF/UHF/FM signal splitter and either the above mentioned transformer attached to flat 300 ohm cable or a plain  "European" style connector attached to the end of the 75 ohm round black cable will do the trick. Some Radio Shacks have them. Good luck!

    Better fm reception

    Is it just a single wire?

    If so, purchase a cheap FM antena. It looks like a "T" when spread out (4' to 5'). That should help.

    You can purchase an "amplified" antenna, but if your area reception is really bad (such as in a valley) the antenna would just amplify the noise as well. Look for web based radio in this case or if you have cable there are stations on it.
