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

The XM radio signal comes and goes...I've had the antenna changed twice. Any advice?

If you're using it with a SXV300 or SXV200 add-on tuner, there's a known issue where there's a poor connection between the antenna plug and the jack on the tuner. Plug in the antenna, then pull the cable down so it keeps a bit of tension on the plug. Use zip-ties to secure the antenna cable to the side of the tuner to keep up the tension.

I need to know what replacement antenna to get for my tk-3130

I found the manuals at:

This radio is a UHF radio but it doesn't saw on the site what the frequencies are or the type of antenna connection, BNC, SMA, ?
The manual shows 464.5 MHz to 467.925 MHz so an antenna for 464 - 468 MHz would do.

Manual also at:
Contact form at:
See if they have a replacement antenna for you.

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.

Bad fm radio reception on my kenwood car radio

It's not necessarily the Kenwood. BMW uses an odd system in their cars. There is the antenna, either on teh roof or in the rear window, that feeds analog to a receiver usually in the trunk that converts the signal into 2 wires. Analog and Digital. It uses a European antenna connection which requires an adaptor to interface our US Radios. So. It can be a couple of things that I've seen.
1. The adapter may not be perfectly nestled into the factory connection.
2. The adapter could be bad.
3. The car had an amplified signal processor built into the radio that amplified the antenna signal.

here are your possible solutions.

1. Check the Adapter and be sure it is plugged in properly. If it is still not working change it and try again.
2. If the adapter does not work, purchase a wired window-mount antenna and wire it thru your car. If you really want that kenwood, then you may have to compromise a little.
3. If neither works, then the only drawn conclusion would be the radio. Swap it and run thru the steps again.

There is not easy answer for this, it's troubleshooting stuff that has to be pin pointed. Good Luck!

Kenwood TK-3101 is sensitive to Motorcycle RF

After a lot of experimenting, I decided to try powering the Autocom with a 9v battery and that fixed the issue. Evidently, the power from the bike was dirty - I'll have to filter the power line, find a different place to tap into or remain battery powered.
