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.

I want to add an external antenna, is this product available to be purchased, if so from what stores and approx. how much will it cost. My Radio is a Sangean ATS 808A. Also, is a 220 Volt power pack...


Hello eab.... I would begin by looking at Radio Shack. Take the radio in with you. The prices cover a wide price range depending on the range and quality. Joe

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

My Sangean ATS 808 AM/FM/SW Radio reciever shows a flashing E on startup and won't operate. Any answers on resetting or other solution?


Hello, I assume that this only happens when you are using it on batteries and the unit works when plugged into the mains. If this is the case it most likely is a faulty or dirty connection in the main battery chamber. Clean all contacts reload new batteries and try again.

Sangean ATS-803A - no audio


If its not a micro-p glitch, sounds like the radio was subject to a spike or surge wile plugged into the AC adapter. If the "power" light stays on all the time, thats what happened. Believe me, I was Sangean America's tech from 1990-1995.
Rob
The fix is to replace a transistor, or fet in the main pwr supply. (Close to where the adaptor plugs in.)
I wish I could give more details, but its been 14 long, long years.

Don't be mis-led by the working display. I had the "no power" problem with a working display too. I measured the voltage of the two AA batteries. One was 1.33 volts and the other was only 0.76 volts. Replaced the weak AA and everything worked. I suspect the 'enable' circuitry fails around/below 2.1v.
