Question about RCA Televison & Video
I just purchased the RCA RT2770 but for the life of me I cannot figure out how to attach the pigtail (FM) antenna! The directions/manual is not clear on this!! Do I need to buy another connector to attach the pigtail to the fm 75 plug in?? If you could guide me to what I need or what you would recommend I would appreciate it very much!!
What to do? What to do?

SOURCE: External FM antenna
The fix for the problem is simply go to Radioshack and purchase their part number 278-267 which is an "F" jack to 1/8" Male Plug. The cost is $6.09. This should solve your problem. The 75-Ohm antenna plug can now be screwed or connected to the "F" connector.

SOURCE: am/fm radio stations not clear
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 phone 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 in 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.

If you're still not getting a good signal, try an indoor amplified antenna, which you'll find at an electronics store.
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. Make sure to Switch from stereo to mono.

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.

Aftermarket antennas come with notoriously short leads. What you need to do is remove the stock antenna and compare lengths to the replacement. The difference is the length of extension you'll need to get from your local electronics supply or auto parts store. The stock antenna plugs into the back of the stereo itself.When you route the new lead, try to follow the original location as best as possible.
