I’ve searched a Google with no real luck. I am looking for a replacement, as close to the original, FM antenna for the Astro Sonic. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I’m trying to keep this console as original as possible but understand if I need to use a newer model antenna

Thanks

Jim

I have 3 Astro-Sonics and use these dipole cables attached to the FM connector. At $7 you can't beat it.

I'm not familiar with Astro-Sonics specifically, but on many consoles the original FM antenna is nothing but a 31 inch length of wire stapled to the inside of the cabinet, with one end connected to one of the FM Antenna terminals and the other end not connected to anything. This will work in a strong signal area.
