Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I'm trying to hook up a outside antenna (f-type connector with standard antenna/cable coax.) to the back of my HK reviever in order to get a better fm signal. When i barley put the connector on it seems to work fine, then as i screw on the f-type connector the signal is lost. when i go back to the original inside antenna and push on the suppled balun it of course works. albiet with a so so signal stregth. Is there anything i can check to get this type of connection to work? gs

Wilson roof mount coax is broken at radio connector end


I'm going to assume you've got a PL-259 connector on the end of the coax cable - they look like this:



6_5_2012_7_45_33_pm.jpg

They are designed to screw onto the radio's RF / Antenna jack. The end shown is standard, the other end - that the cable enters, requires an insert that matches the coaxial cable outside diameter.

There are two versions of the connector; solder-less and soldered. The best connection is provided by the soldered type. It is superior both electrically and mechanically to to the solder-less version. If you lack soldering skills, patience and / or the tools and supplies to solder the connector, the solder-less version will be the way to go.

There are two types of solder-less types, a crimp and non-crimp type. They look like these:



6_5_2012_7_54_52_pm.jpg
The "Non-crimp" solderless PL-259 from Radio Shack - about $6.



6_5_2012_7_59_59_pm.jpg
A crimp type PL-259 connector - $2 and up at various radio & electronics stores.

Since this end of the antenna is at the radio and presumable protected from the elements, it may prove to work very well for you. Each of these connectors requires knowing the type cable (RG-58 and RG-8 are very popular types - but there are many other 50 ohm coax cables) or outside diameter and selecting the one that fits correctly, along with a crimping tool (and dies) for this particular connector size. You may get by with a standard pair of pliers, but the connection is not as good as would be obtained with the crimp tool. Generally, you would provide a crimp around the ferrule at the cable end for the braided conductor and another at the very tip of the connector for center conductor.

Each connector will include very specific cable preparation steps for the removal of insulating jacket, braid and dielectric material to provide proper fit of the connector to the cable. If it were a "standard", I would have included it.

Check this link for Youtube video the show how to install the various types of PL-259 connectors on cables.

I hope this helps & good luck!

How do you replace a coax antenna port that was pulled out from the back of the tv


On most sets the tuner has to be removed for this to be done-a new fitting or a new tuner can be installed.

If the set has the standard RCA audio and video jacks for input you can hook a cable box or even an old VCR to those and BYPASS the coax fitting--hook up to those inputs--select them on the set and leave set on that input and change channels with the box or VCR.

Much cheaper than replacing the fitting and gives a better picture.

Hooked up cb, blows fuse when the mic is keyed


when mic is pressed transmitter is engaged. First is the Fuse the proper fuse? Could be an antenna-coax problem. Get a dummy load and hook up to your CB and try it again. If it doesn't blow the fuse, the problem is indeed in your coax antenna system. another way to test your antenna coax is to disconnect it from the radio, take a multimeter, set it to ohms 200 ohm scale, put one lead on the center pin of the coax and the other on the outside of the connector on the coax.if it shows anything at all, you have a short and that will not work. It needs to not read anything. To be sure the antenna system is ok other than swr you can also check the coax an antenna for continuity. one lead of meter on the coax center pin then other on the antenna. should get a reading, a low value. again on the outside of the coax at the connector and at the antenna side on the outside of the coax connector. should be a low reading. but you cannot have a reading from the center of the coax to the outside of the coax. disconnect the coax at the antenna and measure from center to outside at the coax if the previous reading showed a value.If you see a value on the meter, any value, your coax has a short. not good. most likely at the coax connector. redo the connector. It is possible that the coax got compromised somehow and got smashed to the point the outside coax meets the inside and touches.
Now the other possibily your fuse blows, kis because the final output transistor is bad. So if you hook up a dummy load to your radio and the fuse still blows, then the final transistor is bad. This is probably due to a bad coax-antenna system. So before you replace any parts check the coax-antenna system first or you will have the same problem and burn out another transistor in the final. If none of this helps then just get another radio or have a god buddy look at it that knows about radios. Trade him another radio or something to fix it.

CT-32SL 13 antenna busted off, how can we hook up


you can use your rca connectors for your cable if your cable box have rca all you need is rca jacks if you don't have a box and all you have is the coax , then you can use a vcr or a dvd with coax input and rca output "hope i explain this right {" tv-----rca's--2---rca jack output vcr ---coax input ---hook up coax CABLE

How do you hook up regular coax cable to the TV?


You simply need an "F" connector to "Belling-Lee" converter. about $4.00. At any Radio Shack, Antenna shop. This screw onto the end of the existing antenna connection & makes it so you can plug it into the Socket at back of set.
I have included a link that has a picture.

Digital to analog converter box hookup


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.

I have a Motorola Quasar TV and an outside UHF Antennae. I have coax coming from Ant. There are 3 coax connectors on the back and one pair of screw terminals for 300 ohm flat lead in cable that is...


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!

Trying to hook up your DV220SL8 DVD/CD Video Cassette Recorder. I have an antenna coming in coax but there are no places to plug any of the jacks on the tv.


There are two ways of solving this problem
1.It seems to me that you need an RF Modulator Box. What this does is convert the RCA cables (Yellow,White,Red cables) into coax. You buy the box then plug you antenna and RCA cables into the box. The box has a coax output that goes to your TV. You can then switch from VCR\DVD to antenna.

2. I dont know if your VCR/DVD has it but try hooking up your antenna to the VCR coax INPUT and then hook up your TV to the coax OUTPUT. Both Coax INPUT and Coax OUTPUT should be on the back of the VCR/DVD device. Your going to need an extra Coax wire for this.

Hope this helps

Thanks for reading!

Remote Antenna


I suggest LMR-400 cable, but generally most any coax cable will do. As far as your connectors, I suggest visiting RadioShack or The Source for these, remove your existing antenna and bring it with you to determine what N-Connectors you will need.
