For recording radio programs with a tape recorder. Connect this
jack to the microphone input jack of your tape recorder with a
suitable cord. In the case of a Sony tape recorder, use the Sony

AM reception: The built-in ferrite bar antenna is used. Since the antenna is
directional, rotate the set horizontally for optimum reception, if necessary.
FM reception: Extend the attached AC Power Cord so that the FM
sensitivity will be increased, as it has the function of an FM antenna.

In a steel-frame building, a mountainous area or at a long distance
from a transmitter, reception may be unsatisfactory. In that case,
connect a commercially available FM external antenna to the FM
EXT ANT terminals at the rear as illustrated.
Turn to select the frequency of the desired station, as
marked on the Dial Scale.
