Antenna Installation Hints and Guidelines
Keep all antenna wiring away from AC electrical wiring to minimize interference. Avoid
long antenna runs that closely parallel AC wires.
All antennas placed behind the wall must be rigidly affixed to studs and conform to all
Any antenna mounted outdoors must be properly grounded and lightning-arrested, and
should be installed by persons knowledgeable and experienced in these matters.
The AM antenna should be mounted a few feet above the WallStation and facing edge-
on to transmiters to maximize reception.
Extending AM antenna leads is not recommended and can lead to reduced reception
and increased levels of interference.
AM reception may be particularly compromised in some types of home construction,
particularly those using foil-wrapped insulation and/or aluminum siding.
Connection to an external FM antenna is recommended for best performance.
When distributing the signal from an external antenna throughout the home, be sure to
use a quality splitter and CATV-type RG-6 coax.
