Jack for TV antenna outlet?? Help !!!!

I own a 76 Airstream Land Yatch by myself and am trying to figure out how to hook up my TV to the roof antenna. I have jack outlets on the inside walls that are round and have a vent looking piece protecting them. I am trying to find out where I can buy a jack that goes into this round outlet on one side and hooks up to the back of my TV on the other. I am definitely low tech here, just an old TV, no VCRs etc. Can anyone tell me what this part is called and where I can buy it. ( Speaking of antennas, I have found the crank on the roof for the antenna, but if i find that isnt working, there appears to be a great deal of info in the forum already) Thanks for not laughing (too hard) at me and for any help you can give me.

Are you sure you are not looking at the power adapter (cigarette lighter type plug) that is located next to the antenna jack. The antenna jacks on my 75 are two small holes that a plug goes into. The holes are about 1/8 inch in diameter and about 1 inch apart.

You can buy the plug at the local Radio Shack but many people have replaced the incoming old two parallel wire cable with coax for better reception especially for the UHF stations. If you do this you must put and adapter on your antenna and then run new coax into the unit. The segment gear on your antenna is most likely stripped. It happens alot. You may need to take the antenna base apart to replace it with a part from Vintage Airstream supply.

I had the same questions on the TV hook up piece, but also one on the "power adapter". Exactly, how is the power adapter used and what type of connector?

Any and all help appreciated.
