How can I open the cable junction box for a Hills QXF343HD Antenna

The junction box is semi circular, through which a small dipole is fitted. two plastic lugs clamp onto a flat aluminium shaft which is grooved except for about 3 cm in the centre, this ungrooved section seems to be what stops the shaft from sliding and the grooved section seems to be what the plastic lugs grip into to prevent the two halves of the box opening.

SOURCE: Blender-motor side 6-lug interface with pitcher shattered. Replacement part avail?

Is the shattered part able to be "recreated" with a bit of superglue or similar? not to use as such, but just so you could take it to any reasonably competent machine shop and get them to copy it in a similar material. Try and they may be able to help with a relatively common replacement part such as this. Another route to go is to try and find a similar model that isn't working and cannibalise - any local domestic electrical repair shop might be worth a try, or internet exchange forums. Good luck

SOURCE: Bosch PFZ600E blade clamp

Your best bet is to call a local tool repair center. If you post your location, I can provide you a more detailed referral.

These parts are considered normal wear items and are not that expensive. You may also b e able to order the part from your local Home Depot or Lowe's store too. I carry extras of these for all of mine. I think these were about $5 when I bought them.

SOURCE: broken e-clip

This is not an easy clip to put in. If you have purchased the thrust bearing kit (part number 12500036) to get the clip it will be helpful but may still be hard to get the clip in. The kit comes with another washer that is thinner, making it slightly easier to install the clip. The reason it is hard to get in; your brake (part num. 35-2948) has worn and as your brake wears the shaft raises and puts more pressure on the clip (which is probably why your clip has broken). I would advise to change the brake and thrust bearing kit. Even after changing both of these the clip can still be a problem to getting on. You will need to use a small screwdriver to pull the transmission shaft down and get one side of the clip in at a time. It is slightly easier with 2 people, one pulling the shaft with a screwdriver and the other putting the clip on. The only problem, changing the brake requires a specialty tool which is about $100. The tool relieves the pressure of the brake spring which is somewhere between 200-400lbs pressure. You may want to call the local repairman on this one unless you don't mind spending this much on a tool and take precautions to relieve the spring correctly.

Fm aerial connection ?

Both of my Marantz receivers use a 75 ohm coax input. The receivers included a single wire antenna that simply plugs in. The plug is suitable for coax cable going to an external antenna. You can also get a small 75 to 300 ohm transformer that will allow you to use a dipole or other common indoor FM antenna.

How can a make an equivalent to a Telex St 200 1/2 wave dipole antenna?

it is either 72MHz or 216MHz. There r a lot of utube videos on DIY Dipoles but u must change the length to match the frequency.
A VHF TV antenna will work for 72. Length = 39" each side-- 216MHz is going to be 13" - total will be about 80" and 28"
The issue is the matching xformer. A dipole presents 300 ohm impedance. The 200 is a 50 ohm Z. a typical TV matching xfmr is 300 to 75 so u will have to build the right one of maybe find one in a HAM store.
Google this - 1/2 wave dipole ham - for lots of ideas

Sounds like a ground loop. Is it possible your new antenna is somehow grounded to an electrical ground, such as an outlet box? Should be nothing metal connected to the antenna or mast except the RG6 cable.

Hey, I have a oldschool pioneer dc-z92 system with tuner, turntable and CD player. I am having trouble setting a tuner, There is just 1 antenna which is AM loop antenna ( I dont know what is it ) I...

It sounds to me like you only have the AM loop antenna installed (looks like a circle). This is used for receiving AM radio frequencies only. There should be a separate dipole antenna that attaches to terminals next to the AM terminals that looks like a long pair of wires for FM frequencies. Sometimes the connection is coaxial (circular with two connections, one connection inside the other) and sometimes it is two separate wire connections. I hope this helps.

Show me a pictorial diagram of a dipole antenna connected to a stereo reciever


You didn't list your receiver model number, but here's a generic picture of how you would connect an indoor FM dipole antenna to a Kenwood receiver. These antennas should be available at most home improvement stores or from Radio Shack. They cost around $10.00, maybe less.

Depending on your model, you may have use some adapters. Ask the store staff for help.

Cb antenna warning

If your readings are below 0.5 with a dipole that is a excellent swr reading, most fall in the area of 2.0 or higher, you will not harm your RF output transistor, if you are getting antenna warnings see if you can recalibrate it.
