antenna question

Post by vkarppinen on Wed Jun 13, 2018 4:36 am

Hey guys, I had a new stereo installed in my 65 sportsvan, I can only get one channel in. The installer said it is the stock antenna, has anyone had this problem ?

If so, is there a replacement antenna I can install to receive local radio stations ?

If you're going the remote antenna route don't cheap out for something off ebay. Make sure you get one that has a good power amplifier otherwise your reception will be shit.

I was able to use the original antenna, I wrapped some thermostat wire around the ground wire on the antenna, I then stuck a 14/2 wire in the antenna tube wrapping the positive wire around it. I then inserted that into the new stereo antenna cable and magic happened...

Thanks guys
