What does fuse called radio-b do?


If your unit has digital display as most do now, RADIO-B will supply constant power to power the units memory so it can remember the preset channels, starting volume etc. The power antenna is usually controlled by a separate wire from the unit (normally blue) this wire supplies a low voltage signal to the antenna, The antenna will also have its own power supply and earth at the base of the antenna, the problem could be there. depending on the antenna, some have a controlling relay that is separate, again another possible source. there will also be a fuse in the main fuse box. These will all need to be checked, along with connecting a power source to the antenna to ensure the antenna does actually work.

Do i need ariel for cobra MR F55 EU radio


? I assume you are asking if you need an ariel antenna for this radio in order to receive and transmit? if that is the case then yes you do, Any radio requires a matched antenna in order to transmit, if you were to transmit without an antenna, most of the RF energy will transfer back into the radio and over heat "burn out" the output transistors. always make sure to have a proper antenna connected before transmitting on any radio.

Need an replacement antenna for my radio shack pro-508 scanner. Radio shack does not carry them anymore


Hi.

Check on eBay. You need a standard BNC connector antenna for this scanner. Radio Shack scanners are made by Uniden so a Uniden BNC antenna will fit your unit.

Here's a link for an antenna on eBay:

Am fm reception bad


FM reception is weak



What to do


• Extend the power cord as much as possible. The FM antenna is in the power cord.


• Move the power cord to adjust the FM antenna

• If you still have problems with FM reception, you may need an external antenna.


* Call Bose®Customer Service to request one.


The external antenna on your radio is a coax (round) design It needs an adaptor and an antenna which are cheap.


Easy to make, radio shack "F" connector 90 degrees or straight, to 300 ohm wire connections. Attatch a 300 ohm flat ribbon antenna cable to those two screws and plug into radio and see how your reception is. You will need to position the antenna wires to get best reception. I have hid them in back of paintings and so on.


Cheapest solution next to putting an extension cord on radio power cord.

You would need to get the antenna specifically designed for your handheld. Sometimes these will come in different band splits such as 450-470 MHz and 436-460 MHz. You would choose the band split closest to the frequency you commonly operate on. Using an antenna not designed for your radio can cause problems with the radio, such as you mentioned, including beating up the internal power amp. (Same problem exist if someone presses the PTT when there is no antenna on the radio.) Contact a radio dealer who offers your type of radio for more info and to find out what types of antennas are designed for your radio.

If you are talking about a mobile vehicle radio. There are a wide variety of antenna types and the antenna is cut to suite your frequency.

Sirius satellite radio


You will need to get another sat antenna, and locate it somewhere either above the camper, or where the camper does not obstruct the antenna. Any store that sells sat radio equipment (Fry's, Best Buy, etc) will have the micro antenna. Install it either on the hood of the truck, or on top of the camper. You will need to run the antenna to the rear of the dash. They make Y couplers that will allow you to run both the OEM antenna and the extermal antenna at the same time, and it will not hurt the system to have both wired in at the same time.

Satellite radio antennas do tend to fail sometimes. In the early days of Sirius/XM they were made a lot better, but now I've had problems with them a lot more frequently. If the antenna is plugged in securely and it still shows the 'antenna' error code, you most likely need to replace your antenna. It is possible that something else along the antenna signal path is causing your problem - Sometimes the antenna connections in the dock or the receiver itself can cause the issue, but most likely it is the antenna.
