Your question is pretty vague, but my guess would be the white one... Red=power, Black=ground, White=signal/antenna?!

Cool reasoned response.


It should be EASY to figure out which spot is the antenna. Just take a scrap piece of wire of any length 5 or 10 ft long (whatever). leave one end hanging off the end of your table. Bare the wire on the OTHER end. Touch the bare end to various points in the transmitter. Listen to the signal on a receiver and just listen for the signal to clear-up and sound better. Thats the spot. Solder it on and you are done. Only do this if you are using a small LOW POWER transmitter commonly used to broadcast I-pods music etc. Dont do this if transmitter is high powered. (it would be dangerous).

It is low power one now I would like to know if it would increase the range if I solder a old radio antenna to it . I would like it to broadcast the sound few meters at good quality .
