Question about RCA Audio Players & Recorders
I want to hook up an external FM antenna to mine (I live in a fringereception area and the pigtail wire FM antenna just doesn't do it). The FM antenna jack on the back of the unit is some kind of weirdnon-standard connector (similar to an RCA but not quite) that I can'tfind described anywhere in the manual and that I've never encounteredbefore. Anyone know what type of connector this is and where to get anadapter for coax or ladder-line?

Oh, I get it now. That extra Sony one should work fine. Does this mean you got it working or are you still looking for a replacement? You can most likely find these on ebay by themselves or as part of a laptop wireless assembly.

You will have to go to Radio Shack or Wall Mart, maybe Home Depot and get a matching transformer. That will have spade terminals on one end to connect to your tv and a round (75ohm male thread) to hook to your converter box.

the antenna is internal (I couldnt find an external adapter) - u need to open the top (20 or so screws). Theres a "pipe" thru the back that leads pretty straight into the antennae. Hook ur metal to the closest bundle and out the pipe.
My reception still isn't perfect, but you can listen to it. I moved the ac power code to the far side and gain some improvement as well.

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.
