elec aerial wire colour
Thank you one and all for your responses regarding the original radio/cassette fitted to my car.
There would not seem to be anybody involved in servicing/ repairing the Becker gear her in the land that time forgot.
The cost of getting it to the land of Uncle Sam and fixed and back is silly for a radio.
So - I have bought a simple and non digital radio - this has no c.d or tape function ( the kid in the shop was unaware of what a cassette tape was ) but it does have a thingy into which an I pod goes - so that's o.k and I guess it won't get pinched as it is so uncool.
It also has a wire for operating an elec aerial - anybody know what colour the wire in the original loom is to operate the " mast" ?
There are two grey/ one green and one blue for the speakers, a red for live, and a mystery brown that seems to come from the same area as the red. Also a black that I assume to be earth.
I really like the " flashness" of lifting and lowering the aerial with the radio - so if you know , please let me in on it!!
Kind regards, and thanks again,
