RCA RT2770 "Pigtail antenna"?

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?
Thank you!

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 phonemag-glass_10x10.gif 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 inmag-glass_10x10.gif 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.

  • Step 2 If you're still not getting a good signal, try an indoor amplified antenna, which you'll find at an electronics store. Don't buy one unless you get a guarantee that you can return it for full credit if it doesn't solve your reception problems.
  • Step 3 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.
  • Step 4 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.
  • Step 5 Temporarily switch to monaural mode to improve a weak signal on an FM receiver.

    SOURCE: changing AM / Fm radio antenna on 2006 chevy

    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.
    Good luck!!

    How to change crankshaft sensor on a 2001 cad catiera


    Its on the side of the block firewall side ... REMOVAL Numbers in text in parenthesis correspond to numbered components in image. Disconnect the wiring harness (1) from the Crankshaft Position (CKP) sensor pigtail. Securely attach a scrap piece of wire about 36 inches long to the CKP sensor pigtail. Later, this piece will be used as a pull wire to guide the new sensor pigtail back through the same routing. Raise and support the vehicle. Remove the oil filter and capture any lost engine oil in a container. Loosen the oil cooler lines at the engine block. Back out the fittings far enough in order to gain sufficient clearance for the sensor pigtail connector to pass between the oil cooler lines and the side of the engine block. Remove the fastening bolt for the CKP sensor (1). Remove the CKP sensor and the O-ring seal from the engine block. Remove the CKP sensor pigtail. Observe the routing of the pigtail. Gently pull the CKP sensor pigtail down through the routing path and out. Guide the pigtail connector along the top of the oil cooler lines around to the side of the engine block. Pass the connector between the lines and the block at the point of the widest gap. Stop when the pull wire is exposed at both ends of the routing path. Disconnect the sensor from the pull wire. INSTALLATION Securely attach the CKP sensor pigtail to the lower end of the pull wire. Pass the pigtail connector between the oil cooler lines and the engine block. Using the pull wire as a guide, pull the sensor pigtail along the top of the oil cooler lines and around to the rear of the engine. Use the pull wire to pull the pigtail into position. Disconnect the pull wire from the sensor pigtail. Connect the sensor pigtail to the harness connector. Thoroughly clean the mating surfaces of the CKP sensor and the engine block. Install the CKP sensor with a new O-ring seal into the engine block. Install the fastening bolt (1) for the CKP sensor. Check the harness for proper routing. Make sure that the wiring cannot come in contact with the exhaust manifold. Tighten the oil cooler lines at the engine block. Install the oil filter. Lower the vehicle. Recheck the engine oil level.

    Rca rt 2770 programming. My fm radio stations


    You can manually program a station by pressing AM/FM to get to the correct radio band. Then tune in a station with the Tuner +/- (the left/right arrow) buttons on the remote. Next press Memory (just below 7) and then a number on the keypad. The number must be entered before the Program Preset number stops blinking. (For FM you can use some 2 digit numbers.) To scan through the stations in memory use the Channel +/- buttons on the remote or the Next/Previous track buttons on the RT2770. You could fill all of the memory slots automatically by pressing and holding the AM/FM button for two seconds. The unit will store the stations that it tunes in in order until the memory slots are full. Note: you do need to have the FM antenna and AM loop antenna connected (and extended for the FM antenna).

    Retrevo has the manual for the RCA RT2770 available here: http://www.retrevo.com/support/RCA-RT2770-Home-Theater-Systems-manual/id/2869dj191/t/2/ . You will need to enter a code to download the PDF.

    I hope this helps.

    Charge battery without removing seat on 2006 flstn


    Yes, you can charge the battery without removing the seat but you must be able to get to the large cable connection on you starter. Connect the positive lead to this large connection and the negative lead to the engine at any convenient location.

    The best thing to do is purchase one of the "Smart Chargers". They come with a "pigtail" that has a quick plug on it. Remove the seat and install the pigtail on your battery then reinstall the seat with the pigtail hanging out in a very inconspicious place. When you finish a ride, simply plug the pigtail to the charger. You'll always have a "hot" battery and your battery life will be greatly extended.
