ANTENNA INFORMATIONii -
When receiving broadcast signals, the antenna being used is of
great importance. The position of the antenna is especially
important when receiving stereo broadcasts. Incorrect antenna
placement is often the cause of distortion or insufficient
v When an FM or AM antenna is placed high in the air,
use a lightening arrestor to protect the unit.
FM ANTENNA-i 7"; h
For FM broadcast reception, the use of a professional type
FM outdoor antenna is most ideal, but when signals are
strong, the standard accessory FM di-pole antenna will suffice.
A variety of antennas are available on the market for use
according to the specific area in which they are to be used.
Typical examples are: Indoor Antenna: For about a 20 km
(15 mile) radius from the station; 3-Element Antenna: For
about a 60 km (40 mile) radius from the station; SvElement
Antenna: For about a 80 km (50 mile) radius from the
This model is equipped with both 759 and 3009 impedance
antenna terminals: 75!) Terminals: Use to connect a 750
coaxial cable from an outdoor FM antenna placed at a
distance away from the unit; 3009. Terminals: The supplied
3009 di~pole antenna is sufficient when the signals are
. If in a remote area, or inside a concrete building, etc., a
multi-element outdoor antenna is recommended. In this
case, use 300 ohm terminals.
in When using TV antenna feeder wire, keep in mind that
the wire is susceptible to corrosion and lasts only a few
years. Check wire periodically as defective lead-in wire
can cause sound distortion or increased noise.
a» A TV/FM Antenna can also be used in place of an FM
The AM ferrite bar antenna at the rear of the unit is
adequate for normal AM reception. Use AM antenna terminals
when signal strength is insufficient.
FM BROADCAST RECEPTION
Make connections as outlined in CONNECTIONS.
I. Turn on Power Switch.
2. Set Selector to FM position.
3. Set Mode Switch to FM AUTO/MUTE or FM MONO.
If the signal strength of the desired station is weak, FM
MONO position is recommended.
9 Knob to select desired station (FM Stereo
ight to confirm FM stereo reception).
5. Tune until the FM Tuning Meter indicator is at the center
and the Signal Strength Meter registers as strongly as pos-
sible towards the right of the scale.
6. Adjust controls of the external amplifi
AM BROADCAST RECEPTION
Make connections as outlined in CONNECTIONS.
Turn on Power Switch.
Set Selector to AM position.
Turn Tuning Knob to select desired station.
Adiust AM Bar Antenna as required. Pull out from rear
panel and position for maximum fidelity.
Tune until the Signal Strength Meter registers as strongly
as possible towards the right of the scale.
Adjust controls of the external amplifier.
As AM broadcasts are in monaural only, position of FM
Mode Switch is irrelevant.

When tuning in FM or AM broadcasts, tune for indica-
tion as far as possible toward the right end of the scale.
Movement of the needle to left or right indicates signal
FM CENTER TUNING METER
Turn Tuning Knob to select FM station while observing
this meter. Tune until the indicator needle comes to
the center of the meter. The Stereo Indicator Lamp
will light when FM Stereo broadcasts are being received.
FM STEREO LAMP
Lights when FM stereo broadcasts are being received.
Rotate this knob for selection of desired broadcasts.
FM MODE SWITCH
FM AUTO/MUTE: Will automatically receive any FM
broadcasts in stereo or monaural.
w Cuts noise between FM stations
and disturbances from weak inputs.
For listening to FM stereo broad-
casts in monaural. Left and right
channels are mixed and emitted
from both left and right speakers.

too weak for stereo separation,
MONO position facilitates better
FM/AM SELECTOR SWITCH
Set to FM position to receive FM broadcasts, and to
AM position for receiving AM broadcasts.

Pull out rom rear panel for AM reception. If signals
are not received with sufficient clarity, use an outdoor
antenna and connect to the AM antenna terminal.

If the FM broadcast station is nearby and
distortion exists, use the LOC antenna
terminals instead of the DIST terminals of
Model AT-2250 and connect in the same
way as described above.
