Antenna Combined with Radio Tuner 880086

Since the introduction of the car radio, reception quality has been less than perfect. Currently, audio reception is accomplished with a co-axial cable between the antenna and radio tuner. Unfortunately this system looses transmission in various ways.
Today we will present a new system which reduces signal loss due to capacitance and impedance requirements differences in the antenna and the co-axial cable. This system combines the radio tuner with the antenna, thereby changing the signal thru the connecting cable from radio frequency to audio frequency.
This change virtually eliminates signal loss thru the cable resulting in better reception quality with a standard 31 inch length antenna or one could even use a half length antenna without any loss in reception quality.
