Radio Antenna

So, I can't exactly remember when this happened but I was after I had had some work done on my unit. I could no longer dial in radio stations on my Dash Radio. I guessed that this might have something to do with the antenna but as I was working under there today I found the antenna lead and followed it to a little 2x3 silver box. The antenna screws into this box and then another wire comes out that terminates in a 5 pin female din plug. It is just hanging there and I suspect it should have a mate which I cannot seem to find. Anyone have a an idea?

Now I suspect that this may be a secondary antenna connection for a CB. Can anyone confirm?

sounds like the box you found is for an "all in the mic" type CB and your mic has been removed from the box

Could be. There is a second antenna beside the driver window. Never gave it much thought till now. I guess the mind sees what it hopes to see.

I tend to agree with the "All in the mic" CB.. You followed the wrong antenna.

YOu also said it was "Screwed in" PL-259 connectors screw on to an SO-238, this is the common CB-antenna connection.

AM/FM radios normally have what is known as a Motorola plug and jack (jack on the radio) this is a bayonet like thing, I'd have to draw you a picture (or link to one) it does not screw on/in it plugs in.

Actually is was the somewhat unusual antenna connection that started my mind percolating on it. Not similar to any am\fm dash radio connections I have ever seen. Unfortunately, still leave me without radio.
