It is either 72MHz or 216MHz. There r a lot of utube videos on DIY Dipoles but u must change the length to match the frequency.
A VHF TV antenna will work for 72. Length = 39" each side-- 216MHz is going to be 13" - total will be about 80" and 28"
The issue is the matching xformer. A dipole presents 300 ohm impedance. The 200 is a 50 ohm Z. a typical TV matching xfmr is 300 to 75 so u will have to build the right one of maybe find one in a HAM store.
Google this - 1/2 wave dipole ham - for lots of ideas

SOURCE: cb antenna warning

If your readings are below 0.5 with a dipole that is a excellent swr reading, most fall in the area of 2.0 or higher, you will not harm your RF output transistor, if you are getting antenna warnings see if you can recalibrate it.

How do I improve my reception on a Bos Wave Radio with single CD player


The Bose uses its power cord as an antenna. The cord has to be stretched out (not coiled) to pick up stations. It also helps if it's oriented the right way -- try changing the direction (having the cord running east to west, say, instead of north to south). Moving the radio and the power cord closer to a window can help, too, especially in a commercial building. These structures often have a steel frame which can block radio signals. If all the above fail, your best bet is to buy an indoor FM antenna, which can be as simple as a piece of wire made into a dipole antenna or as fancy as one of the Terk mini-towers with built-in amp. Bose sells one for their radio, though it's kind of expensive for a simple length of wire. You can get the same thing from Radio Shack, but if you do, be sure to pick up their adapter (catalog 278-257) to plug it into the non-standard Bose jack. All together you'll spend half what Bose wants. Move it around like you did the power cord and you should see a big improvement.

Antena for bose radio?


The Bose uses its power cord as an FM antenna. Make sure it's reasonably stretched out (not coiled), and is not in surroundings that shield it from the outside (a steel frame building, though even here putting it close to a window can give you reception). If this isn't enough to get stations clearly, there is a jack on the back of the radio where you can plug in a dipole (piece of wire) antenna available from Bose -- not cheap for what it is -- an indoor antenna from Radio Shack or a similar store, or even a roof-mounted unit. If you don't buy from Bose, you'll need an adapter to convert from the standard plug everyone else uses to the phone jack Bose has decided to use instead. Radio Shack sells one: catalog 278-257.

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

The problem is related the polarization of the two antennas you and your friend are using. You are using a dipole antenna which is polarized horizontally and you friends using an upsidedown whip which is vertically polarized. My advice is as close as you are, is hang your dipole from something high enough that the top say is hung in a tree or off a tower and other end of the dipole is attached to an anchor in the ground. You have basically made a full wavelength vertical, which you friend should build himself.

Show me a pictorial diagram of a dipole antenna connected to a stereo reciever


8_18_2012_7_54_11_pm.jpg

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.

Ok so when I bought my '97 jeep wrangler a couple of months ago it came with a CB. It is all hooked up, came with a huge antenna( 4-5ft maybe), all of the lights come on, the weatherman channel works, and...


check the sw's and the antenna. those are SHORT antennas by cb standards. a 1/4 wave is about 9ft long. a full wave is around 36 ft.. so anything shorter than the 102" whips are prone to have less range. if swr check out. the board on the 18's and 19dx styles need to be resoldered from time to time. simple fix .. don't pay more than $8 to fix the radio...

I can only hear people close to me on my CB, what could be the problem?


Sounds like a problem with the antenna system. Test with a VSWR meter (also called a "standing-wave" meter) if the antenna system is OK. Also, what happens if you connect a different CB radio to the antenna? This will tell you if the problem is with the antenna or with the CB radio.

Someone give me a tv antena can i make it a fm radio antena it has no wireing on it if i can how do i run the wire ?


there is bended rod called as dipole in ur antenna..both ends of dipole should be connected by a coaxial cable. connect it to ur fm recivers antenna. to have much gain cut both ends of directors which are strait pipes (2 to 3 cm)

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.
