Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I cant find any directions to hook it up. I was told that it works fine and when i plugged it in I did get a radio station, but very weak. How to hook up antenna? how long of an antenna? Just a link to a manual would be very helpful.
These old sets work best with a long piece of wire, the longer it goes and the higher in the air you can get it the better signal. The best results are obtained with hooking up a decent earth against the aerial. get the best earth for the set by hammering a piece of copper pipe (or water pipe) into the ground, then connecting your earth wire to this. Just use thin hookup wire, is all that is requires. There is often a 2 wires hanging out the back of the chassis. The black/green one will always be the earth, the other, the aerial.
I found a picture of the chassis, notice the thin wire next to the power lead. This is where you will find the earth and Aerial connections.
