My television antenna plug on 77 international

I was hoping someone might know of an adapter plug for the tv antenna on my trailer. How do I connect to coaxial cable from the two prong tv hook up in the trailer. Am I missing something very obvious?

Thanks for any advice
Wayne

Wayne,

I just use a standard matching transformer in reverse. It seems to work quite well on my 78. This one is indoor/outdoor and reversible.

TV antenna

Brett
thanks for the help
But one last question. How did you attach the transformer to the wall. Did you remove the cover to the reciever so as to expose the wires? All I see is the 2 holes about an inch apart that apparently receive some prehistoric plug.

There is a 2 prong plug that is available, I think radio shack had them. It looks like a euro power plug only smaller. It has 2 set screws to feed the wire into and hold it in place.

Unless I am mistaken, and you want to stay OEM you could replace the plug assembly with a newer one and have the coax, you might need to run coax back to the antenna, or use a adaptor in the wall plate, not sure on that one...mine has been upgraded by a PO.

2 prong plug

I tried getting the 2 prong plug from Radio Shack and they don't even have it in their inventory anymore. My MH actually has the plug but no wires coming out of it, but I couldn't figure out how to connect it to the TV. Anyway, i don't even use it at camp sites because I can plug in with cable, but if boondocking, I see where it would be useful.

I got a replacement covers, drilled (carefully) the right size hole in them, and soildered the connections behind the plate. Make sure you match the connections, then you can feed the rear TV from the front connection. The only downside is if we are really reaching for Radio reception, I need to unplug the TVs. It seems to feed back somehow.
