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.

Sirius is a satellite biased service , so it uses a satellite antenna , local stations how ever don't use that antenna and use a dipole antenna , are both type antenna's connected to your radio , lots of installers don't bother to connect local antenna to new radio installs , im mean you got Sirius why'd you want local stuff anyway is there thinking

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.

I need to know what type antenna it needs


What you need can be as simple as a "dipole antenna", or as complex as an FM antenna on your roof. A dipole antenna looks rather like the letter T, with the top part of the T about 3' wide, and the base part long enough to reach your set. Make it out of lampcord, extension cord, etc. The connection looks like this:
'-------------------------------------------'
'----------------' '-------------------------'
' '

the vertical bars are connections on the ends of the "T", and the base connects so it all makes a loop. The size isn't really critical.

You can buy one for under $10

Where can I find an antenna for this unit?


External FM antennas can be had for as little as $7 for the a simple dipole version (looks like a "T") to a highly directional outdoor type for over $150 at your local Radio Shack below:

http://www.radioshack.com/search/index.jsp?kw=fm&f=Taxonomy/RSK/2032189&categoryId=2032189&kwCatId=2032057&fbc=1&filterName=Category&fbn=Taxonomy/Antennas

The simple $7 dipole is a "twin lead" 300 ohm type that many home stereos shipped with because they are inexpensive, take up little room in the box and work surprisingly well for all but the very distant of stations. These antennas are also found for sale in many department and some hardware stores too. Your stereo may not offer twin lead or 300 ohm hook ups (2 terminal screws near the ANT label) but only a 75 ohm connection (like your cable tv connections), in which case, you'll need an inexpensive 300 to 75 (terminal to cable) ohm balun (or matching transformer) like this one below:

http://www.amazon.com/Parts-Express-Push-On-Balun/dp/B0002ZPIOQ

or to go the other way - from 75 to 300 (cable to terminal) ohm balun like this one:

No FM reception on CMT-ED1 Sony shelf system


There is hardly ever an internal FM antenna -- only AM. You'll need at least one of those twin-ax dipole antennas (there's one with every receiver bought).

You can test the concept just by putting a single piece of wire on each antenna terminal -- when you do this reception should improve immediately, but will not be as good as with the dipole antenna.

How to build an indoor dx fm only antenna?


Hi lgcphoto

What you need is a folded dipole that can be easily made from 300 ohm TV ribbon. Here is a link to a site that gives you instruction on how to make one. You need to check also what way your favorite FM station is polarised. In Australia, some(one at least) ABC stations are vertically polarised(meaning the antenna has to be vertical), presumably for better Car reception. But the majority are horizontal. Great results can often be achieved by splitting the signal from an external VHF TV antenna, but only if it is VHF, and the station you are looking for is in the same direction as the TV repeater. If you need any more assistance with this, just let me know. Rating this FixYa is a great reward for my time to address your request. Cheers, happy DXing

I have a sansui receiver 9900z with a broken antena,I think. The broken part was connected to the rear near the antena connectors. I am not sure if this is suppose to ba a antena or not? The set plays well...


The back of the receiver should be marked for FM and AM antenna connections.
Usually the FM antenna needs at least a dipole antenna or a "T" antenna. The part that broke off is probably just the AM antenna.
If you go to your local Radio Shack, you can get a cheap AM/FM antenna for under 20.00. (probably under 10.00)
After hooking up an antenna, you should be good to go.

I hope this helps.
Good luck.
