    I have a SoundStream T-1 Tuner that I picked up on a eBay a couple months ago. It requires a coaxial input for FM reception. I bought a Terk FMedge powered antenna ($40)for the unit. The reception was not real good, but I was ok with it. It worked for a few days, then my FM reception crapped out. The AM reception works fine (works off an attached AM antenna) but there is nothing on FM. No crackling, popping, fuzz, etc... Just silence.

    Is it possible that this antenna no longer works, or is it more likely that the FM portion of the tuner is out.

    I appreciate any and all help.

    Thanks
    Joey

    try just hooking up some extra wire.....preferably 300 ohm lead but almost anything should work...i use 18g speaker wire.....to the tuner...you'll probably have to use the 75-300ohm converter that comes with the terk....at least it should come with the terk

    if you still don't get a signal than the tuner section may be out
