What type of antenna is this. You will need 75ohm cable for this with good 75 ohm 3 way splitter. Please be sure that TV cable is not going to work.

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.

Had my channelmaster 4046 HD hooked up to a vizio tv and got all major channels. Now have hooked up my antenna to an RCA tv and can't get NBC and local FOX station is jumpy


The tuner in the RCA has poor sensitivity. Radio Shack sells a inline amplifier that may help, make sure you can return it if it doesn't. Move the antenna outside if possible and as high as possible, that may help. Good Luck!

Put together


You may be able to get Unique Imports to supply assembly information although that should have been provided with the antenna.

Need an replacement antenna for my radio shack pro-508 scanner. Radio shack does not carry them anymore


Hi.

Check on eBay. You need a standard BNC connector antenna for this scanner. Radio Shack scanners are made by Uniden so a Uniden BNC antenna will fit your unit.

Here's a link for an antenna on eBay:

Am fm reception bad


FM reception is weak



What to do


• Extend the power cord as much as possible. The FM antenna is in the power cord.


• Move the power cord to adjust the FM antenna

• If you still have problems with FM reception, you may need an external antenna.


* Call Bose®Customer Service to request one.


The external antenna on your radio is a coax (round) design It needs an adaptor and an antenna which are cheap.


Easy to make, radio shack "F" connector 90 degrees or straight, to 300 ohm wire connections. Attatch a 300 ohm flat ribbon antenna cable to those two screws and plug into radio and see how your reception is. You will need to position the antenna wires to get best reception. I have hid them in back of paintings and so on.


Cheapest solution next to putting an extension cord on radio power cord.

How do you hook up regular coax cable to the TV?


You simply need an "F" connector to "Belling-Lee" converter. about $4.00. At any Radio Shack, Antenna shop. This screw onto the end of the existing antenna connection & makes it so you can plug it into the Socket at back of set.
I have included a link that has a picture.

Improve reception


HI there,

Well Yes you can improve the reception, please follow the below steps -

Improve FM Radio Reception -
 
1. If you don't have an antenna connected to your FM receiver, purchase a simple dipole antenna--a simple T-shape flexible wire-- and connect it to the FM antenna inputs on the receiver. Because FM signals are directional, you'll want to experiment with the positioning of the wire to find the best reception of the station you're trying to receive.
 
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.
 
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.
 
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.
 
5. Temporarily switch to monaural mode to improve a weak signal on an FM receiver.


Improve AM Reception -
 
1. Gradually rotate the radio 360 degrees. Leave it in the position where it sounds best.
 
2. Reverse the AC plug if it isn't polarized. (If you can flip the plug over, then it's non-polarized.)
 
3. Plug the radio into a different AC outlet.
 
4. Move the radio closer to a window.
 
5. Experiment to learn if appliances and powered products in your home are causing interference: computer monitor, television, electric blanket, light dimmer, fluorescent light, hair dryer, air conditioner, smoke detector. If possible, turn off the offending item. Otherwise, move the radio to another room.
 
6. Upgrade to an external antenna if your receiver, tuner or radio has a place to connect one.
 
7. Buy a passive AM antenna that doesn't need to be connected to a radio or receiver.

Good Luck!!

Thanks

We purchased an HD Radio and find that it cuts in and out...can one connect the radio to an outdoor Antenna to resolve the situation


Absolutely, as long as the radio has connections for an auxiliary antenna. You can also connect to an indoor antenna that's a lot better than the wire antenna that your set comes with. For options, try searching eBay for FM antenna.
