Default Tube Radio - What are G & F Terminals?

On my Zenith tube radio, there are two terminals labeled G & F. Does anyone know what they are for? I am wondering if one is to hook up an external antenna. If case, to which one? What is the other one for?

The "G" is for a ground connection, and the "F" is for an external antenna. I have several antique radios myself.
You should go here if you have any radio related questions:
