Type of 75ohm antenna connector for old Yamaha tuner

Hi everyone. First of all I hope this is the best place to post this. I have an old Yamaha T-760 AM/FM tuner from the early 80s. It has sentimental value so I'm not really looking to upgrade. Lately I've been having problems with the signal cutting in and out using two different 300 ohm twin-lead antennas. Might just be the tuner. But I figured it was worth trying a 75 ohm coaxial antenna, maybe that port works better. Problem is I don't know what kind of plug to use. Push-on and screw-on coaxial plugs won't fit in the tuner's port (pictured.) Neither will a PAL coaxial antenna I happened to have laying around (also pictured.) At first I thought maybe the silver ring inside the port was removable, so I very gently tugged on it with a pair of needle-nose pliers but it didn't budge. Also the instructions mention nothing about removing it. The diagram in the instructions (pictured) shows a coaxial cable that doesn't resemble anything I own. Is this a phased-out style? Thanks for the help.

I had a Yamaha T-80 tuner for a while that used the same connection. I've also seen it on a few other tuners I've owned over the years. The 300 ohm leads should work fine so no need to find that style of connector unless it's something you want to try out. I don't think there is anything to be gained by using the 75 ohm connection over the 300 ohm connection. I still have one of those connectors sitting around in my stack of stuff. IIRC I bought it from a Radio Shack 10-15 years ago.
