Question about RCA Audio Players & Recorders

I need an antenna for RCA RP7664A portable radio. What kind should I look for?

I love this little radio, but the origina telescoping antenna is gone. There are antennas for sale on Amazon, but I'm not sure what kind to buy. The major difference in replacement antennas seem to be the end that fits into the opening on the top of the radio.

There are 4 things you need to look at for the replacement, the two most important details are how the antenna is attached inside the radio, and the second is the outside diameter of the antenna. The other two details are the collapsed length and extended length. You will need to open the radio to see what attachment method is used, usually a small screw through a hole through the base at the end of the antenna. There will also be a wire attached with the screw (usually), that connects to antenna to the radio circuits. Carefully remove the broken antenna from the radio, then you can note the attachment method, and measure the outside diameter, and the collapsed length.

SOURCE: yamaha htr 5240 receiver, need fm antenna adapter

this is your manual http://www2.yamaha.co.jp/manual/pdf/av/english/re/HTR-5230.pdf

this is the 300 ohm adapter you need from radio shack and just install some small gauge speaker wire to it. or just splice the one that came with your receiver.

I have had a pioneer X-ray p970 f model.. had it for years. However getting radio reception has always been an issue. I live rurally. I would like ABC AM 720. Any ideas. Thani you Susan


A web search for your model turned up a blank. You aren't kidding about having it for years. I'll give you some generic information about AM radio reception and hope you find something useful.

Generally, AM reception is through a wire coil wrapped around a ferrite (very fast magnetic material) rod. Received signal strength is dependent on the angle between the rod and the radio station's transmitter antenna, so rotating it in a horizontal direction (around an imaginary vertical line through the center of the receiver) is often helpful. The angle of the best direction can be affected by nearby equipment (metal appliances, ductwork, computers, etc.)

Many non-portable audio receivers and a few boom box types have both an AM and and FM antenna terminal on the back. The FM antenna is very much like a TV antenna (you can use a TV antenna) and is generally required to get FM reception except in units with a telescoping antenna mounted to the case. The AM antenna is used to augment the coil signal, and is generally needed only if you are trying to pick up a weak signal. Attaching a wire to the AM terminal may help (make sure you have a good electrical connection between the terminal and the metal of the wire). This wire will also have an optimal angle for best reception. Try arranging it vertically; many AM radio stations transmit vertically polarized signals for the benefit of car radio antennas.The longer the wire is, the better, but it doesn't have to be very large. The physical limit is about 110 yards, the practical limit is how much you can stand to have stretched out behind the stereo. (A thin wire going up the wall to the hook behind a picture will probably not attract much attention.)

Portable radios often use a single telescoping antenna for both AM and FM along with the internal coil previously described. If you have this, experiment with antenna position and radio location. I have been told that some early model LED light bulbs may interfere with AM radio reception, especially if they are within a few feet of the radio.

Hi how can I replace my Brocken telescopic antenna on my radio ?


eBay would be a great source for a new radio antenna. Go to eBay search and type in telescoping radio antenna. Choose Consumer Electronics as the category, and click Search. Choose the filter Lowest Price + Shipping First.

Does anyone sell a universal longer antenna for a motorola talkabout 5000 2 way radio. 1 guy said add coaxial .I only want the antenna to be 7 long or so


it is not the length of the aerial that matters but how it is wound there are books that explain the function of aerials and the relationship between windings and wave length or cycle so by studying the books and having a fibreglass fishing rod you can in effect may your own aerial to what ever length you like
next thing you can do is join a club for radio operators ( ham or otherwise) and you will be in an organization that will help you to get the best from your radio

How can I buy a new antenna for model sony cfm-165tw


Many boombox antennas are attached by a small screw through the pivot point. This is usually a #1 Phillips screw. Some do not have a swiveling antenna; for these you have to remove the back of the case to get at the attachment screw. Keep the screw; it's guaranteed to fit when you attach the new antenna.

The hard part is finding a replacement. If you have the pivoting/swiveling antenna, the Radio Shack 28" Replacement Telescoping Antenna 270-1405 ($5.99 online) will probably work. You might even be able to use it for a non-pivoting antenna that telescopes into the inside of the case.

I need a replacement antenna for a sony radio cassette-corder model CFD-S05


Antennas can be easy to find, but size may be not so easy

Ebay is your best bet for a low cost

However if you are not to bothered a simple thin piece of wire cello taped on to what is left should work just as well, recommend about 2 m of wire any thin wire will do as there is no current in the connection

If you do go down the route of replacing the antenna and have the original connector still sticking out where the screw goes threw your fine - or if its gone complete you should fine a small screw either at the base or the side casing, this should release the connection to the unit, however if not you will need to open it up

antenna cost about 4 - 7 quid depending on size, but as before if your happy to use a thin wire it should work just as well, or salvage a similar size one off a old radio etc... there will not be any sony parts for this its just a telescopic antenna used on many items

hope this helps a little

How do I connect an external radio shack AM enhancer


I presume that you wish to connect an external antenna/aerial to a portable radio with no antenna connection. Wind several turns of your antenna wire around the telescopic antenna - should work ok!
