ANTENNA FEED LINES


In order to get the most signal to your receiver you need to feed it properly. Most modern receivers have a coax connection 
on the back of the radio.
This allows you to use a coax feed line from your antenna.
If you are using an outdoor antenna you can feed the antenna via a length of coax from the antenna to a lightening arrestor.
If you are using a long wire antenna you can attach the antenna to the center wire of the coax and pull the shield braid
back and insure it does not touch the center wire or antenna.
Tape the braid up to waterproof it.
Attach the other end of the coax to the lightening arrestor insuring the braid and the center wire are both
attached to the coax plug properly.
The lightening arrestor is then attached to a ground rod.
You can see the article on grounding on the AMANDX front page for more information on this aspect of your system.
You can then feed another length of coax to the other side of the lightening arrestor and run it to your radio.
You may also wish to consider an anti static device which is listed under the antenna section of the AMANDX front page. Coax to PL-259 connector Coax to BNC connector If you are using an indoor antenna you donít need the lightening arrestor but can feed your indoor antenna with coax
as it will help shield noise from the antenna.
You may wish to consider an anti static device which is listed under the antenna section of the AMANDX front page. If your radio has no antenna input or coax connector you can try one of 3 things: 1- You can try winding the antenna wire around the whip antenna. 2- You can use a clip to clip the wire to the top of your whip antenna 3- You can wind the wire around the radio itself especially if there is an internal loop antenna in the radio Hoping this works for you. Any other ideas are appreciated.
