RAM 2500 Van V8-318 5.2L VIN T Magnum CNG SFI (1997)
Antenna: Description and Operation
All models use a fixed-length stainless steel rod- type antenna mast, installed at the right front fender of the vehicle. The antenna mast is connected
to the center wire of the coaxial antenna cable, and is not grounded to any part of the vehicle.
To eliminate static, the antenna base must have a good ground. The coaxial antenna cable shield (the outer wire mesh of the cable) is grounded to
the antenna base and the radio chassis.
The factory-installed ETRs automatically compensate for radio antenna trim. Therefore, no antenna trimmer adjustment is required or possible
when replacing the receiver or the antenna.
