Someone with a Carver MX-130, quick favor?

Post by jv9999 » Mon Jan 07, 2013 5:11 pm

Can someone with an MX-130 and a multimeter do me a favor and measure the resistance of the FM antenna connections to ground?
My receiver is pretty deaf on FM and one terminal seems to be grounded and the other one is very close (.2 ohms). Just wondering if this is normal or not.

Thanks!

on: ~0.0/~0.1 ohms (75/300 ohm terminals to ground)
