Customer Question
I recently purchased a...

I recently purchased a Sony Am/Fm Radio and Tuner. Model # HCD-SBT100, Serial #(###) ###-#### My issue is that in the basement location, for which I bought it, I do not get good reception. The solution is to extend the antenna out into the garage where there is good access to open windows etc. However, the existing antenna uses a connection that I can not find anywhere n Kansas City. Does Sony make an antenna with at least a 25 ft wire that will plug into the port for antennas on my tuner?

Technician's Assistant: What's the make/model of your device? How old is it?

I just purchased it one week ago. It is a Sony, Moderl # HCD-SBT100

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?

I am here and need an answer to the above. Actually, the answer is obviously quite simple just send me an antenna that has a long enough lead to reach from my Garage to the basement location where the tuner is - approximately 25 ft. - and that will plug into the back of the tuner in the assigned location!

Hi

First , we don`t sell anything here , this is not Sony

I may have a couple of solutions for you but you will NOT find that loop antenna with a 25` length of wire on it

Still want to proceed ?
