Still reckon the problem is with the baird ir a conector to the baord, unlikely that the promlem is external or something easily rectifiable, options are fix your self with could be electronic or try and get a bose fix.
unfortunately it looks like vibration is a problem, thus the loose cable seneraio,
or
its a weird electronic problem that is going to be basically non servicable unless you really think you can identify and replace components on the board,
if ypu are determined to do in internal examination, check for lose cable and areas wher a connecor is not properly soldered down, (if your lucky an skilled that would be easily fixed.

I have had a pioneer X-ray p970 f model.. had it for years. However getting radio reception has always been an issue. I live rurally. I would like ABC AM 720. Any ideas. Thani you Susan


A web search for your model turned up a blank. You aren't kidding about having it for years. I'll give you some generic information about AM radio reception and hope you find something useful.

Generally, AM reception is through a wire coil wrapped around a ferrite (very fast magnetic material) rod. Received signal strength is dependent on the angle between the rod and the radio station's transmitter antenna, so rotating it in a horizontal direction (around an imaginary vertical line through the center of the receiver) is often helpful. The angle of the best direction can be affected by nearby equipment (metal appliances, ductwork, computers, etc.)

Many non-portable audio receivers and a few boom box types have both an AM and and FM antenna terminal on the back. The FM antenna is very much like a TV antenna (you can use a TV antenna) and is generally required to get FM reception except in units with a telescoping antenna mounted to the case. The AM antenna is used to augment the coil signal, and is generally needed only if you are trying to pick up a weak signal. Attaching a wire to the AM terminal may help (make sure you have a good electrical connection between the terminal and the metal of the wire). This wire will also have an optimal angle for best reception. Try arranging it vertically; many AM radio stations transmit vertically polarized signals for the benefit of car radio antennas.The longer the wire is, the better, but it doesn't have to be very large. The physical limit is about 110 yards, the practical limit is how much you can stand to have stretched out behind the stereo. (A thin wire going up the wall to the hook behind a picture will probably not attract much attention.)

Portable radios often use a single telescoping antenna for both AM and FM along with the internal coil previously described. If you have this, experiment with antenna position and radio location. I have been told that some early model LED light bulbs may interfere with AM radio reception, especially if they are within a few feet of the radio.

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.

I am having very poor FM reception with my Bose Radio wave system. Is there an external antenna that can be attached?


The power cord is the antenna and it should be stretched out straight for best possible reception. You could experiment with re-orienting the Bose, too.

There is a threaded 75-ohm coaxial FM External connector. You could probably get a compatible FM antenna at an electronics store.

See the manual, Page 10

The antenna on my ICF-SW7600gr broke off. I want to solder on a new wire lead. should i only connect to the top solder point, or to all three where the old antenna plate rested?


There is only one antenna connection. That is the wire or pin in the middle of the coax connector where the old antenna was connected. Hook that to your new antenna, the other connectors are usually at ground potential and won't help a bit. Often a piece of wire the same length as the old antenna will work fine. Stretch it in the vertical position as was the old antenna.

Yes i order an antenna adapter for a 2005 dodge dakota.. The end that goes into the radio fits perfectly but the end that attaches to the antenna itself will not fit.. the antenna has a round black plastic...

Unit does not pick up satellites but recognizes when antenna is open


I have a unit like that. The antenna appears to be dead. It just searches forever and never finds anything. I use an external antenna that I got from eBay (brand is Gilsson) and it works fine. You just plug it in the external jack (after removing the little rubber plug) and it works even better than the built-in antenna.

I want to know about the range with handheld cb radios


It depends on lots of factors....

First, the output power of your radio. Many claim 5watts output, but when measured on an accurate SWR / power meter, they are usually closer to 4 watts. Also, they usually output full power only with external power supply, not internal batteries.

Second, the antenna. If you are using a "rubber duck" helical, range will be at its minimum. If it has a quarter (1/4) wave telescopic whip (about 2 meters!) then that would be better.
If it has a socket for external antennas, then a (1/4) quarter wave car mag mount on something metal and 1/4 wave in radius this would be pretty good, especially if mounted above any local restrictions like buildings and walls.
The ultimate would be a half 1/2 wave antenna, mounted at least 1/2 wave (5 meters!) above ground, on a scaffoling pole or similar at least 1/2 wave long (5 meters).

The station you are speaking to also has a lot to do with range, if they have a good station, then range will be better.

With 5 watts, at the right time of day, with the right antenna, and under the right conditions, CB can reach across the globe! Yes really.

You need to post more info on the type of set up you have.

Hope this helps

GE Spacemaker TV/Radio combination Model #7-7650


Yes, you will need an external antenna to pull in the digital signals. It will not work with the built-in antenna on the GE. Alternately, you can use an external antenna (ie, rabbit ears), connect them to the converter box, then connect the converter box to the antenna jack on the back of the TV (I think it has one). Granted, not an elegant solution for a kitchen TV, but it beats not using it anymore.

Will antenna help?


What is your car brand & model?

I ask, because some vehicles use a thinfilm windshield heater for defrosting/de-icing. This file is conductive, and will act as a shield to the RF microwave signals that GPS operates on. Consulting the owners manual, or the car dealer could help determine if this is your case.

Please try the unit outside the vehicle (in the same location as you have troubles) and see if the issue resolves itself. If so, then yes, using an external antenna can resolve the issue, but it will need to be located in a place not covered by that same problem.

All GARMIN external antennas are waterproof and have a very thin cable, so it could be located outside the vehicle. Alternatively, a side-window mount for the antenna could be used, if that's a viable solution in your application.

The "less-expensive" antennas mentioned can work, most will, but you may not get the optimal performance as one designed specifically for the GARMIN units. Personally, I've used an afermarket one and had good results, but the GARMIN ones always seem better.
