Hi James and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially, bear with us; re-confirm and post back with the complete model number of the radio.

Additionally, please provide further description of the "...K200 antenna receptacle..."

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
The Model is SANGEAN K200 FM RDS/ AM Receiver. The diameter of the female marked antenna, on the radio, is smaller than the diameter on the antenna male

Appreciate the post back James.

Offhand, it would require an adapter to match the plug to the jack; something like the product shown HERE.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
The antenna male is already 3.mm; it needs to be reduced to a lower diameter!
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I mean 3.mm
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
3.5MM
Expert:  Louie replied 10 months ago.

Thanks.

HERE is an adapter for 3.5MM down to 2.5MM
