AM antenna in attic to FR via coax
Ok, I'm not real sure where I can ask this question.
I don't get AM reception on my home stereo AT ALL since it's in the basement. I have a coax cable going from downstairs to the attic.
The AM jack on my receiver is not coax - it's the normal kind where each end of a single wire plugs into separate holes.
If the description above doesn't make a lot of sense, here's a link to a picture of the back of my receiver that clearly shows the AM and FM connections. They're on the bottom left.
My FM jack is a coax jack.
If I plug the coax cable into the FM jack on the receiver, and the other end of the coax has an AM antenna hooked up to it, will I be able to get AM reception? I'm assuming not, but some guy at Radio Shack said I would.
If I had an antenna, I'd just try it, but I don't have one and I don't want to buy one if I won't get AM reception.
If plugging the coax into the FM coax jack won't get me AM reception, is there and adapter to switch a coax cable into the wires needed for my AM jack?
