Question about Grundig Globe Traveler G3 AMFMSWRDS Radio

Open Question

The Grundig G3, When I try and use the external antenna I lose most if not all of my signal. I popped the back off and there, by the ferrite rod, is a green wire not attached. I'm guessin it should be but I'm at a loss... I've tried different connectors and cables and antennas plus boosters an nothing changes...

SOURCE: broken antenna on grundig mini 300 radio

Replacement is possible, the back of the radio needs to come off and there is a screw at the bottom of the antenna. Remove this and the old one will slide out and simple to install new one. Call Eton for replacement, can be foung with a google search....

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?

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.

Eton e5 sw shot


The SW FET preamp transistor, Q1, on the underside of the circuit board blows if a static electric discharge hits the whip antenna. In my case, a cat rubbing against me & the radio on a very dry winter day did it in. The back & circuit board has to be removed to get at it. The micro transistor & the solder connection are very tiny, so hard to replace. The antenna jack should still work, because the preamp is only for the whip antenna's SW reception. An easier solution would be to just run a wire from the antenna jack to the whip antenna, but you would no longer have the whip's preamp benefits, or just use a longwire antenna connected to the jack for SW. Also beware plugging into the jack disables the AM ferrite antenna inside, so you might not want anything plugged into it for AM reception because the internal ferrite seems to perform better than any external antenna.

Problem is i have to have a flashing light on the truck i drive and the light causes a lot of interference in the reception is there something i can do to eliminate this problem


switch the Anl/NB on. The only other option is to put a ferrite rod on your antenna coax 6 inches from radio(taped to coax itself) a ferrite rod is an old AM radio bar. If that doesn't help, wait until your parked and turn off flashing lights.

We have a Grundig S350DL radio that was my father's. There is no manual. FM works great. Can't get AM. Radio turns off on its own!! Any suggestions?


Hello,
The problem you are having may be due to some configuration settings (such as a timer). Not dtecting the AM signal, may be due to interference from power lines. To improve AM reception (if there is something to improve) one should rotate the radio to orient the internal ferrite antenna. Using the radio close to a window can improve reception.
To enable you to diagnose the problems that may be due to some configuration setting I give you the link to the radio's manual.

Hope it helps.

Black Meatal thing


The thing you are describing is a ferrite rod. It is the aerial that is used for LW and MW reception. The telescopic aerial on top is used for FM.

Providing it is a clean break and you haven't lost any parts of the ferrite rod, just tape it back together. It shouldn't have too great an effect on the reception.

Hope this helps,

Matt.

Excessive static on AM stations. Waves in and out. Not so on car radio. Is there an antenna to eliminate this?


Turn on the radio and turn the AM/SW BAND switch to the AM position. MW appears in the display. Use the outer ‘fast’ tuning knob to find stations, fine tuning with the inner ‘slow’ knob
when needed.

• If there is interference from adjacent stations, place the BAND WIDTH control in the NARROW position. If there is no interference, leave it in the WIDE position.

• If there is excess background noise, turn on
the SW LPF switch, which may minimize the noise.

• If a station is so strong that audio distortion occurs, reduce the gain level with the AM/SW RF GAIN control knob by turning it counterclockwise.

• The telescopic antenna does not have to be extended for AM reception. The radio has an internal, directional, ferrite-bar antenna for AM reception.

• To optimize AM reception, swivel the radio until maximum signal strength is achieved.

All of that being said: It's very tough nowadays to receive AM in this 2008 electronic world. If your able install a longwire SW antenna outside, and have access to a good earth ground, you can boost the AM signals and beat the noise being generated all around you.

AM reception


Hello,
If the internal antenna is broken that means the ferrite bar is broken,that does imply that the wiring around it is cut. If the two parts are not removed, the antenna may still be able to perform correctly (just as two magnets put end to end). You can try to put it in the vicinity of another radio to see if there is any resonance effect.
Hope it helps.
