Re: FM static

Hi suebu,

So you got it to go with an antenna. FM tuners are real quiet generally unless they get some sort of signal to unmute them. Even a length of speaker wire split for about 100cm each way(this is called a dipole), then hung vertically will get you great reception.

Do i need an antenna to recieve FM radio?

Yes. Stereo receivers typically have either screw terminals or a coax connector on the back for an FM antenna. You can use a TV antenna for this since FM radio is in the middle of the old TV VHF band. However, if the station you want is nearby, you can pick it up with a piece of telephone hookup wire (solid 28 gauge copper) connected to the antenna screw terminal (strip the insulation off the end of the wire that is connected to the terminal, but leave the rest of the insulation on). If you have only a coax connector, slip the end of the wire into the center terminal on the connector. The wire ideally should be about 30" long, but you may get by with less.

For more distant stations, you may want a long-range TV antenna.

I have an older onkyo integra (TX-870) which pop when I change stations, then no sound. Need to turn off and begin again. Can this be fixed or should I purchase a new 2 channel sys?

Hi, It sounds like you are listening F.M. radio and the F.M. muting button is engaged ( as well it should be-otherwise you will have static between the stations ) sometimes there is almost a "THUMP" sound when you switch stations-this is caused by the receivers P.L.L. circuitry losing then locking in on stations, if you do not lower the system volume you will amost assuredly cause an overload of your final drivers, that's why it will come back on when turned off-it has reset. Turning off fm muting will get rid of the "POPPING" noise-it will however leave you with unbearable static which in turn should cause you to lower volume momentarily eliminating the need to constantly turn off the receiver. Thank for asking FixYa, I hope this helps, let me know how I did or if I can be of more assistance, good luck Prodzilla

Bad static in radio

If this is a home stereo receiver, there is an FM antenna connection on the back of the receiver. This will accept a dipole antenna -- about 6 feet of twin axial wire which branches to about a 4 foot T.

The AM antenna is usually inside the receiver, sometimes with a connection on the back of the receiver for an optional AM antenna -- these are usually a plastic loop/rectangle around which a lot of fine wire is wrapped. It has leads which connect to the AM terminals.

My Optimus STA 3190 has no AM/FM

Hi rowdy

The fact that you are getting static at least is good. Without knowing allot of the background to your problem, first thing to check is if the aerials are correctly connected. If it is any help to you, here is an excerpt from the original owners manual about the connection of the AM loopstick.
If the aerials are coinnected right, then let me know and we can investigate other options. Cheers
