Question about Bose Wave Music System CD Shelf System
The waveradio I own has a 1/8" 75 Ohm female connector on teh back panel. The external antenna I purchased (a TERK product) has a typical 75 Ohm coaxial male connector.
The fix for the problem is simply go to Radioshack and purchase their part number 278-267 which is an "F" jack to 1/8" Male Plug. The cost is $6.09. This should solve your problem. The 75-Ohm antenna plug can now be screwed or connected to the "F" connector.

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.
