  • What Type RF Input Is This ???

    Please forgive my ignorance. What kind of RF input is this?

    It's a TV aerial connector.

      Thank you. Is it F-type push-on? I need to adapt this female chassis connector to female RG59 and attach a typical male RG59 cable.

        Based on the size of the center pin you probably need a RCA Male to Female F adapter.

          It looks to be RCA. That's seldom used for RF, but you see it on occasion.

            It doesn't look like an RCA connector. I googled "Aerial Cable Connector to coax adapter" and found this. https://www.amazon.com/Silver-Plated...=fsclp_pl_dp_1 It might be what you need.

              Made the assumption you were in the U.S., if you aren't it might be a PAL antenna connector.

                Thanks all. I found this adapter that 'looks' right to me. What do you think?..... https://www.sfcable.com/f-type-quick...iABEgKlS_D_BwE

                I'm in the USA and I think this tuner is marketed in Russia.

                  Doesn't look like the center pin will match up to the connector, the one that Ron E posted seems much closer. If this is Russian, the proper connector may not exist in this country! Maybe you can swap the connector out for one that can be used?

                    That was my thought as well.

                    The lowest possible F3 box alignment is not always the best alignment.

                    Designing and building speaker projects are like playing with adult Lego Blocks for me.

                      Glad to see someone actually searched the internet for "aerial connector". I'm fairly certain it's interchangeable with a regular RCA, the only difference is that an RCA has the center pin sticking out past the shield, making certain that your speakers go BZZ when you plug in an RCA because the signal connects before the ground does. Try sticking an RCA in there anyway, maybe it'll fit good enough...or just buy this adapter that Ron_E linked to and use a f-connector.

                      Anyway, this connector is common for PAL systems, F-connector is common for North American NTSC.

                        Okay, I'll try RCA and if that doesn't work then I'll either replace the connector on the chassis or replace the entire tuner.
