    Anyone know of a good price for a set of antennas and bases?

    Actually got the oysters at a little combo grocery/deli/bar 1/2 mile from home. $12 a dozen loaded with cheese!

    The radio is in and reception is great. I live between New Orleans and Baton Rouge. 40 miles either way. I was pulling in stations from both cities inside of my metal shop. I am very satisfied.

    One hitch. When I went to connect 24 volt power to the converter it sparked like it was shorted. I noticed that there were scratches on both mounting flanges when I took it out of the box this morning. Some dirtbag fried it and returned it. Another one on the way.IMG_0997.jpgIMG_0998.jpg

    Did you have to make any modifications to the base for the antenna? some posts say you have to bypass some of the circuitry inside of it.

    Nope. Bolted it on just like Uncle Sam does.

    Which model base do you have? Is it the as-3900 or other?

    You are good to go! You have the coax adapter I was talking about. Everything looks good. Enjoy your tunes!
