Problem: I ran cat6 and coax throughout my house. But for some reason the notion of installing an extra coax or simple antenna wire never occurred to me. Now I have no way of using my nice FM tuner unless I hang an ugly dipole from the wall.
Solution: I have an extra Ethernet connection available near my audio equipment. I simply used the cat 6 run as an extension - allowing me to hang a dipole antenna in my data closet out of site.
(pictures could be provided if there is adequate interest)
I made the connection at the tuner by putting an rj45 connection on one end of the cable. Then at the other end I simply unjacketed about 1.5 inches of wire. then stripped off one inch of insulation from all 8 wires. Then I twisted 2 pairs into one bundle and the other 2 pairs in the other. Then connecting one of each of the wire bundles to the two FM antenna connectors on the tuner. The pairs you use doesn't matter just as long as you stay consistent. I used the Blue pair and green pair together and the orange and brown pair together.
