How do you rebuild a Telescoping Antenna?

How do you replace broken segments of a telescoping anntenna? I have a Philco Predicta television antenna which is missing the last two segments. I have a 'donor' antenna of the same dimesions. The mount on the Predicta is proprietary, so a simple swap is not possible. Replacing the broken segments is my only option at the moment.

Don't try to remove the segments because they will be destroyed. The easiest way is to change over the whole "stick". Try to find a way to fix the working one at the broken 's place.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

How can I buy a new antenna for model sony cfm-165tw


Many boombox antennas are attached by a small screw through the pivot point. This is usually a #1 Phillips screw. Some do not have a swiveling antenna; for these you have to remove the back of the case to get at the attachment screw. Keep the screw; it's guaranteed to fit when you attach the new antenna.

The hard part is finding a replacement. If you have the pivoting/swiveling antenna, the Radio Shack 28" Replacement Telescoping Antenna 270-1405 ($5.99 online) will probably work. You might even be able to use it for a non-pivoting antenna that telescopes into the inside of the case.

Grundig YB400PE broken antenna


Unfortunately, your description of the problem means that your radio must be taken apart to be fixed. Replacement antennas can be found purchased. It would require installing the new antenna and most likely soldering it to the broken wire. Do you have a picture?

Radio Shack carries various replacements. Make sure you know how your broken one mounts because they can look the same, but there may be a variation that will prohibit you from connecting it. If you can, take the broken one with you to match up. If they do not have it, check with a local electronics shop. They may also have a replacement for you.

Sangean ATS 808A-replacement aerial antenna


The antenna should be available from Sangean, or C.Crane.

To replace the entire antenna, about 6 screws from the back must be removed, and the back also removed.
Or you could replace it at the antenna's "elbow". However, this is almost impossible to do without loosing the 2 tiny washers. If you do loose the washers, the antenna will work, but will be loose, and not stand up and support itself.

Paperclip broke off in my antenna jack of my TV


You could try a small, powerful magnet. You can get a magnet that is on a telescoping pole at some hardware stores - they're used to pick up dropped screws, and things like that. Something like this: http://www2.northerntool.com/product/200314334.htm

That might be strong enough to pull it out. As far as dismantling the connector - it's not really something you can take apart, or at least not something you can put back together afterwards. At best, you could open up the case, remove the connector and solder on a replacement connector. I think your best bet is the magnet pick-up tool.
