Tivoli Model 1 FM aerial connector replacement ?
 
Hi, I have a Tivoli Model 1 in my kitchen. I use the external FM aerial which consists of a length of wire and a form of connector I have never seen before. It's similar to a Coax cable TV connector but bigger, it does not screw into place but push fits.

Anyone know what the name of this connector is. I busted the wire, and figure if I can get a new connector I can make a new aerial. The connector that came with it is sealed.

OK problem solved.

I stared long and hard and realised that at the Tivoli end , the FM connector is the standard Satellite /Cable screw on connector (100Ohm COAX inserted into plug with copper core forming the central connector)

Tivoli appear to use a connector on the end of the Aerial cable which is big enough to push onto one of these connections without needing to screw on.

I dug out an old screw on from satellite TV and improvised with it, so R3 jazz requests now playing fine from my kitchen once again.
