Making Connections with your Antenna:
Please find the connection that best matches your tuner or receiver and follow the listed instructions.
75 Ohm Coaxial:
Your Terk antenna has a Slip-On Coaxial connector on the FM lead. Simply slide the connector onto the coaxial terminal.
See Fig. 1.
75 Ohm Push-Button Connection:
If your Radio tuner or receiver has Push-Button terminals for FM you will need to use the supplied RED 75 Ohm matching transformer. First, slide the RED 75 Ohm matching transformer into the connector on the FM lead of the antenna. Next, slide the RED wire into the terminal marked "FM 75 Ohm". Lastly, connect the Black wire into the terminal marked "FM Ground" or "GND".
See Fig. 2.
AM Push-Button Connection:
Your Terk antenna uses a Twin Lead Bare Wire for AM connections. If your radio tuner or receiver has a push-button connection, simply slip the bare wires into the push button connections. For a Screw Terminal connection, wrap the bare wires around the screw terminals and tighten.
See Figs. 2/3.
Plug the small end of the included power supply into the jack located on the Slip-On Coaxial connector at the end of the FM Lead. Plug the large end of the power supply into any working electrical outlet.
Note: When plugged into an electrical outlet, your Terk antenna will remain ON. This is not a problem because the AC adapter uses very little power. To turn OFF the power supply, it must be plugged into a switched outlet. Some late model radio tuners and receivers come with a switched outlet located on the back. It is safe to use this outlet for the Terk power supply.
