    Replacement wire aerial for Roberts radio? 5th Jul 18 at 10:00 PM
    I have a Roberts Blutune 50, nice little machine for streaming and listening to the radio.

    I managed to accidentally hoover off half of the wire aerial and am struggling to find a replacement (not listed as a spare part on their website).

    Can anyone suggest a possible source for a replacement and advise whether or not it's a straightforward repair?

    Solder a piece of wire onto the half that remains. Or use something else that will make a good connection.

    Or, there's 9 screws on the back panel. Open it up and see how the remaining wire is connected inside. May be a better solution to remove it and affix a whole new piece.

    I don't think the gauge (thickness) of the wire will matter, but if you want to be particular about it, maybe an e-mail to Roberts to make sure the new stuff matches ....

    How does that unit do any streaming? Does it have a WiFi card built in to it? (i.e. for Internet radio). Or are you talking about streaming TO it via Bluetooth from your phone or other similar device? (i.e. using it as a Bluetooth speaker).

    Regarding the aerial, the posts above cover that.
