I moved into my apartment building a long time ago and have been looking for a hook up to use the tv antenna in the building this is the outlet I need to know where i can get an end to use it.



Sorry about the pics best I can do with what I have, From what i understand it is some sort of banana like plug that goes in there
Here r a couple more of the best images I could get



The adapter I am looking for like I said earlier is of the banana variety from what I can gather and fits in the the big hole on the bottom I am hoping someone can help thanks for all your help


My best guess is it looks something like this

I'm having internet issues right now so ??


look up '' RG6 RCA Compression Connectors '' and you would need to make your own end if not available as a whole cable to use

https://www.amazon.com/s/?ie=UTF8&keywords=rg6+rca+comp...

That is the entire outlet there is a adapter that fits in there I can not fine one and the building was built in 1978 so I am not sure if those were in the building since the building was built but I know there are still some residents who have the part but I cannot find them. all I know is there is a cord or some kind of piece that fits in there and then I am thinking you can screw the coaxe cable to it to have access to the atenaa

ya , looks like the rg6 in there with the end ripped off of it ?? what I don't get is why all that mess for something simple ?? unless its like a splitter and the rg6 wire you need has been ripped out

you got the rg6 coming in to the box then a rg6 going out to where ever and the pigtail / whip needed for your room is missing ??


my guess ??

sorry ,

I do like that last picture you posted that may be the thing to fit in that hole and work ?? that may work

look up '' RG6 RCA Compression Connectors '' and you would need to make your own end if not available as a whole cable to use

yes i need to find what goes in that hole, over time when people move out and whatever they just end up taking them so there are really none left and i sure the people who have them dont want to give up theirs so I am looking to buy some from ebay or amazon or somewhere that might still sell these
