The wire is soldered to the board after going through the white insulation inside the connector barrel. After opening the unit, place the solder iron in the hole provided where the barrel is attached to the board. Push the broken piece out using a piece of 18AWG bare solid wire. This is a little tricky... make sure you don't damage other components on the board while pushing the old piece out. Then use the same 18AWG wire for the repair. Push it though from the outside of the barrel. Use the small lower opening to get the solder in place. Leave some space to move it back further when you solder into place. Then cut the wire flush with the outside of the barrel. Warm the solder again, and pushed the wire back in a little so it is recessed in the barrel. Let the solder get hard, and that's it... Works perfect. Should take 5-10 minutes.

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.

Antenna not detected what could this be


Usually the antenna is not plugged-in all the way, or you have broken the little tiny antenna wire. Try another location first, then try another antenna.

The coaxial cable antenna broke on my RCA tv


The part is called a Female Belling-Lee Socket. Radio Shack, or anywhere that sells antennas, CB radios, repairs TV sets, should have one. Soldering it in, is another matter. Be careful.

The antenna base on my Maxon HCB-10C CB Radio got pulled out. Can I fix this?


Not sure what you mean here...

If the antenna is broke, then you should just get a new antenna. If the antenna connector was pulled out of the radio, it is usually fixable.

If the connector is broke off the antenna, it may may be fixable, I would have to see it. If its done wrong, you could hurt the transmit section of the radio.

You should just get a new antenna.

Can not hear no body but can hear weater chanell.


Make sure your wire going from the radio to the antenna is not pinched or broke or split any where.If all your wires are good then you antenna is just not high enough to pick up signal.

Antenna on radio broke


Radio Shack can get you an antenna, or a long wire (or wire coat hanger actually works too)

No antenna detected


More than likely, it is the antenna. Sad to say, but the Sirius antennas go bad very easily. Make sure there is no undue pressure on the antenna wire itself, as that can aide to premature failure. Bad antennas are the number one reason for the unit to read 'antenna not detected.' I have seen plenty of the antennas go bad and they were not misused one bit. If you contact Sirius, they're usually pretty good at understanding the misfortune of losing your paid service. Sometimes they'll ship you out a new antenna.

Antenna not conecting to radio


I would take it to radio shack. Reason is that you can beat your self up over no signal and sit there and waste time on trying to think I fixed it ALMOST! In fact that is not the solution. Is your antenna catching as it is incerting into the femle connection...slightly snapping in or not? Is it falling out? Either way you may have radio shack test this part for you.
