Which connector to get for 1/4" Heliax LDF 150A cable?

I'm buying Diamond D 130J antenna, ad says UHF SO-239 connector, I'm upgrading coax from RG-58U to Heliax 1/4" LDF 150A cable

Here is the link to the antenna http://www.hamcity.com/SearchResult.aspx?CategoryID=2117

I don't have clue which connectors to buy for it, to be able to use this type of cable. I'm using a PRO-96 scanner and this is supposed to be the best cable you can get for 800mhz frequencies.

What is the video single output VHF FM UHF 12db


That sounds like the description of a broadband amplifier. It likely has "F" type (cable-coax) connectors and a power cord.
Commonly used to increase the signal level of TV cable to compensate for inserting a signal splitter, or in some cases to increase the signal level from an antenna, typically outdoor TV or FM radio antenna, so it is connected between the signal source (antenna, or cable) and receiver with antenna as input and receiver connected to the output of this little box. The gain (amplification) it provides is 12 dB, so the output is more than 3 times the input.

I have a wilson 5000 mirror mount. I mount it on the drivers side mirror on the upper cross arm that goes to the mirror. It is mounted on this arm with a bracket and a so 239 connector so I can undo it if I have to ,leaving the antenna connected.I can change coax and not have to worry about undoing the antenna. Remember one thing. The antenna has to be checked for SWR.each time you move it to a different spot or to a different truck.

Trouble with remote on second TV, not responding from back of house


Hi, Mary with Dish Network Customer Service. The TV2 remote (UHF) can work up to 200 feet from the receiver but can also get interference issues that cause it to not work consistently. One of the things that I recommend is to readdress the remote to the receiver and possible installing a pigtail to the remote antenna on the back of the receiver. I have this on one of my receivers and have never had an issue since. To troubleshoot try these steps:

Step 1: Verify correct Remote being used
Check that the remote matches the TV. Use remote key or sticker on remote to confirm. TV1 is located in the same room as your DISH receiver.
Step 2: Check that UHF Remote Antenna is Secure/Upright
If UHF, check that your UHF remote antenna is securely connected to the "Remote Antenna" port on the back of your receiver and that the antenna is upright.
Step 3: Address Remote
To SAT: Access "System Info" - press and release the "SAT" button then press the RECORD button on remote control. If unable to access System Info using the receiver, use "Video Frozen/Locked Up".
To TV/DVD/AUX: Check for current remote codes and address remote.
Step 4: Check that Remote Control Batteries are Fresh
Check that the you have recently replaced the batteries. If not, install new batteries.
Step 5: Reset Receiver
If the issue is only on ONE receiver, unplug the DISH receiver for 10 seconds and plug back in.
Please note: It may take up to 5 minutes for the reset process to be completed.

If you are still having an issue, to install a pigtail you will need a piece of Coax cable, approx. 3 feet long and a barrel connector. Remove the remote antenna from the back of the receiver, attach the coax cable to the receiver. At the other end of the coax cable insert the barrel connector and add the remote antenna. Then drape the coax cable behind and towards where the TV2 is located. It takes the remote antenna away from where all the electronics are, which are major causes of UHF interference. I hope this helps resolve your issue.

The company probably will not send it.You can buy it at any store walmart,radio shack etc.Of course you need a tv antenna for uhf. The term "hdtv antenna" is not of use in this case,as all modern uhf antennas are desing for DTV. Sometimes depends on your needs:general receive,one direcition recive (yagi or directional)etc. In other worlds you need an antenna and a coax cable,nothing else.

I want to use an external antenna. Is the antenna


There is a kit available which contains the antenna, mag mount, coax, and connector. OR if you already have your antenna, mag mount and coax, the connector alone is available. You should be able to get these from your local Motorola dealer.

best regards.

Have an RCA F27636BC TV. Can u hook a DVD player


How to hookup TV

If you have a TV with only a single coax input and you want to hook up components like DVD players and VCRs, here's how to do it.



What you need to connect your DVD player or game players to a TV that only has a VHF/UHF 75-ohm F-connector ("coax antenna input").

1.) RF Modulator with Stereo Audio Inputs.



2.) 6 foot long coaxial cable with male "F" connectors. This cable goes from the modulator to the TV. The modulator also has a coaxial input to plug in your antenna or your VCR.



3.) 6 foot long Video and Audio Cables with "RCA" plugs. The cables connect the yellow, red and white outputs from your DVD or game player to the yellow, red and white inputs of the modulator.





Works with X-Box, PlayStation, Nintendo or other devices that output audio/video via the RCA plugs and you want to connect them to your coaxial only TV.

You are losing a VERY small amount of signal using the transformer. It won't even be noticeable I'm sure if you switch to the coax in but the fewer connections you go through the less the chance of a bad connection. Use regular " Ant. In " coax connection or " RF in" whichever the wording is on the back of your set. Good Luck!
