You didn't say if you would rather build one, or buy one. Many places, like Radio Shack, Frys Electronics have such items on the shelf.

If you would rather build it, get on Google and enter "folded dipole twin lead tv" that will give you measurements for a folded dipole made from a piece of tv "Twin lead". The wires run on the edge of the flat wire and the gap in between gives it the standard 600 ohms impedance. If your radio needs a connection, use a pair of transformers at each end of 58 ohm coaxial cable. The transformers used to come with all radios, but they are very cheap and last many years.

Good luck. If you have questions, lets have them!

    Coaxial FM antenna


    Radio Shack has an
    adapter catalog number 278-0291. It takes some effort to push the 278-0291
    adapter onto the FM UNBL 75 ohm terminal so wait until you have the 278-0291
    installed before you connect your 75 ohm coax on to your new adapter.

    This will resolve your FM screw on F connector antenna interface issue.


    I see others trying to
    help suggest using a 300 ohm to 75 ohm transformer match unit, this isn't what is needed. Your receiver antenna input IS a 75
    ohm input.

    FM antenna is not providing reception, despite cable connected to powered antenna amplifier. TV also connected to powered antenna amplifier (splitter) works fine. FM mode produces only static. I purchased...


    If I understand your setup, you've connected the receiver antenna terminal to the output of the antenna amplifier. If this is true, I'd suggest trying the receiver using a plain old FM dipole antenna (available at Radio Shack and other stores) or even just a piece of wire hooked to the antenna terminal. You should be able to pick up some local FM stations then.

    What might be happening is that the FM is being filtered out by the amplifier. Some amps made mainly as a TV signal booster have an FM trap designed to block the FM broadcast band. In the analog broadcast days, the FM band was right near the sound part of a TV signal, and the trap was there to prevent interference. It may be filtering out your FM band.It may also be possible that you're just overloading the FM antenna input with the amplified signal. Sometimes a signal can be too strong. Using a simple wire antenna will let you test the receiver by itself.

    Other than connecting an antenna you shouldn't have to do any setup for FM reception. If you still get no stations at all when using a simple antenna, then the receiver may need service. But I doubt Circuit City would have sold a floor model that was defective, even at the very end, unless it was clearly marked as such and sold "as-is". I'm pretty sure you'll find that the receiver works with an antenna made for FM.

    How do i hook up an antenna to the pioneer sx-950


    There are two antenna sources on the Pioneer SX-950.

    Both of these outputs are located on the rear panel of the receiver. The AM is a permanent mount. The FM is standard RF/Coax which will run to your antenna.

    Antenna Inputs: FM 75 ohm, FM 300 ohm

    I have a Philips MC235B micro stereo system, but I'm too dumb to figure out the FM antenna connector type. Any help would be great, thank you!


    Hi,
    If it is a plug, it is probably the PAL connector so you would need a PAL female on your coax lead.
    There is a great reference at the FM Antenna Connector and Adapter Guide with pictures:

    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.

    Am/fm radio stations not clear... I have the AM antenna attached... but there is no attachment for FM


    First of all check for any nearby source of interference.....Move your unit away from all computers, fluorescent lights, neon lights, microwaves, cell phones, and cell phonemag-glass_10x10.gif chargers. These devises tend to produce noise in the medium frequency band, where AM radio is broadcast.
    If the unit plugs into the wall with a nonpolarized plug (where both prongs are the same size), try reversing the plug inmag-glass_10x10.gif the outlet. Moving the plug to another outlet might help, too.
    check for fault in the antenna lead, (common) or bad earth on the antenna to body
    If you don't have an antenna connected to your FM receiver,With a receiver or tuner, connect a wire-loop or T-shaped dipole FM antenna to the back of your unit. Move the antenna until you get the cleanest signal. Use a signal-strength meter or display to gauge signal strength if your unit has one.
  • Step 2 If you're still not getting a good signal, try an indoor amplified antenna, which you'll find at an electronics store. Don't buy one unless you get a guarantee that you can return it for full credit if it doesn't solve your reception problems.
  • Step 3 If your signal is weak because you live a long way from the transmitter, install an outside antenna and mount it as high as is practical. If you're primarily interested in getting signals from one station or from a group of stations in one direction, get a directional antenna and point it toward the transmitters.
  • Step 4 If you're using a portable FM radio where the only antenna is the power cord, stretch the cord as straight as possible and experiment with positioning again.
  • Step 5 Temporarily switch to monaural mode to improve a weak signal on an FM receiver.

    Can't Get A Radio Signal When I Connect A Cox Cable


    Hi...
    Some cable companies dont put the FM band on cable and some others put an FM trap (which kills the FM band) in line with the cable.
    One of those is your problem.
    You'll need to buy a FM antenna
