Have a bose wave and live in a metal building. Can't get hardly any am fm radio recept. 3.5 mm antena jack. Can I get an am fm antenna? And do I need to mount antenna outside?


The Bose has the option for external antenna, but uses the AC cord as the antenna, so first try stretching your AC cord to its fullest extent in a straight line, then in different directions to see if that improves the situation. This is for FM only. The AM uses an internal ferrite rod antenna, and this is sensitive to direction, so try rotating the radio in different directions to see if signal improves on AM, and place unit as near a window as possible.

If none of this helps, you will be able to use an external antenna, and no it is not mandatory that they be mounted outside ... as long as you have room indoors. In fact, several manufacturers market indoor antennas for apartment dwellers and others under restrictions against mounting antennas outdoors.

But, logically, the best way to improve reception is the largest antenna mounted as high up and as far away from obstructions between the antenna and transmitter as possible.

Good luck.

Where is the antenna wire or plug located from radio to external antenna?


Possible failed amplification unit (may be internal to the radio or may be external somewhere in the car, usually in the trunk or under the rear seats)

HG8245A VS HG8245: The same Wifi Signal Strength?


Probably not...... With an External Antenna, there is nothing to stop the signal, whereas with the Internal, the Signal has to penetrate the case, before it goes to wherever...... I suggest using the External for the extra distance.... With 2 way radio the clearer the area yo have the Antenna, the greater the distance.... same here.... just using different Frequencies.

What is wrong with a satellite reciever when all I am getting is aquiring signal displayed


This indicates that the antenna is not gathering enough of the signal to be played. This can be caused by an obstruction between the antenna and the satellite in the sky ie: tall buildings, heavy tree cover, covered garage, etc. It can also indicate a problem with the antenna itself, the cable between the antenna and the radio, the connector on the end of the cable or in the radio or, a problem with the antenna circuit inside the radio.

Since there's little you can do about the last item in the list, check the other parts of the antenna for damage. A pinched or crushed cable will short out the antenna signal - and the voltage sent to it by the radio. If allowed to persist for very long, damage to the radio could result. Look for breaks in the outer jacket of the cable - water entering the cable will cause corrosion and will degrade the signal, too. If you find a problem with any part of the antenna system, about the only thing you can do is replace the antenna completely. You can get a replacement online for as little as $9 and change.

Before installing, try connecting the antenna to the radio with the antenna exposed to ta clear view of the sky in a location that you were able to receive a signal before. If it works, you're done. If it doesn't - the problem is internal to the radio and will need to be repaired - or replaced.

I hope this was helpful - if it was - please rate it "4 thumbs up" Thanks!

Here is the list just scratching the surface.
  • Bad antenna
  • Bad coax cable ......grounding externally or internally with shield.
  • Bad/poor ground for antenna..........door to body, painted parts when mounted elsewhere.
  • Antenna installed incorrectly. Nylon grommet must insulate antenna from contact with mounting bracket. Coaxial connector must have contact with bracket for grounding.

External entenna not working, what can i do?


By "external antenna not working" I can only assume that you can't receive any SW or FM signals. Does AM work OK? If so it's likely that your receiver still works but the AM uses a different and internal antenna.

If it's still under warranty then return it to your point of purchase and ask for another one. If it's out of warranty (which I suspect) there is probably not an economical repair. If your external antenna is broken in some way the only place you can get a replacement for it would be Sangean. Typically those manufacturers only provide parts during the warranty period. That is illegal in many states. Most states require manufacturers are required to stock replacement parts for five years after last production. This is one of the brands that tries to hide from the consumers if there is a problem. This is unfortunately the case for many overseas products. If it came from China then it's shipped with no warranty. The seller has to take the hits for defective products.

The Wilson adapter damaged your internal antenna. I talked to Wilson today to get a part number to buy the adapter and the told me they did not recommend using it as it has damaged a number of phones. They also said that LG might have corrected the problem in the newest production models.

The unit has an internal antenna (that is really poor) that is activated when you unplug the external antenna. This is why you get some signal when you unplug the unit.

I assume the problem is the antenna itself.

My suggesion is that you charge up the unit, take it to a place that sells XM equipment AND has a demo unit working. Be sure to take your docking station with you (it has the plug in for an external antenna). Ask the sales rep to please connect your unit to an external antenna to test your unit as you are trying to determine if your antenna is bad. If it works, you need a new antenna (cable may be cut on the inside or antenna may have water/weather damage). If it does not, then there is an electrical issue inside the unit and the unit itelf will need replacement/repair.

While in the truck, make sure the antenna is on the outside of the truck. It has magnet so it is easy to stick to the roof. Do not know what to say about the home antenna, mine is not working right now.
