Blaupunkt radio wiring

Post by reliant1 » Sun Oct 20, 2019 10:32 pm

Having a Blaupunkt Cambridge radio has limited wiring to operate the radio aerial without it going up with the ignition each time so I am proposing to use the heated window switch to operate the aerial which lights up when pressed has any one done this?

The HRW power supply is positioned close to the boot, so extending it through the tub and across the fuel tank shouldn't be too hard. I've used that wire for an elec fuel pump on one of the cars. You could either use the radio as the supply (existing aerial blue wire to HRW switch) or use the fused and relayed supply that's already behind the switch (which may be slight overkill)?

Hi there. I hope this may help. Connection 5 from the 'power block' will extend your electric aerial on switching on the radio. It's quite easy to install the wiring if not already there and will ensure the aerial is only extended when the radio is switched on. Good luck, Mike

do you need an aerial?
I fitted one when I purchased the car back in 1993/1994 and can count the number of times I've bothered pulling it up on one hand!!! reception seems fine with it fully closed as in effect it is already there cos GRP is 'see through' :-)
